This review is from: How to be Good (Hardcover)
I agree with the "massive disappointment" review - the first truthful review I have seen. This book does have it's funny moments, most particularly the long list of things and people that David hates. However, mostly I found the protagonists unbelievable and very annoying. I felt that I was been spoon fed the gags, everything had to be explained by the narrative voice, presupposing an unknowing reader, and I just didn't like anyone enough to care about them. I have been hugely entertained by all Hornby's previous books. This is sadly disappointing.
