5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 19 July 2011
This review is from: Eleven (Paperback)
I don't know why I bought this book. I knew who Mark Watson was, and I loved his comedy, but I honestly don't know how I got from his stand-up to buying this book.

But I'm very glad I did!

From the few reviews I'd read online, I was expecting a laugh-out-loud book. Instead, I found myself completely enthralled and moved by the story almost immediately. It's funny too, but mostly I was gripped by the story, how well the pieces fit together, how Watson's web spun out, starting with one little event. The language is beautiful, I'd catch myself re-reading bits just because I loved the wording so much.

And how it all comes together, the journey for Xavier (and all the other characters) from the start to the last page.

It's just a beautiful book! The only reason it took me so long to finish it was that I kept putting it down because I didn't want it to end.
