4.0 out of 5 stars Startlingly insights., 1 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Blueeyedboy (Paperback)
I recently finished reading this book, which I found extremely interesting and at times confusing. I recommend it. It's different.

I could identify with it in several ways, which made me smile and added to my enjoyment. For example: as a mother of three sons myself, I also used to colour code their clothes. When you have a husband and three sons, believe me, you have to do something with the socks and pants, otherwise you end up with a sock mountain in the airing cupboard, which nobody will touch. In my case, it was brown for dad, navy for son 1, red for son 2 and beige for son 3. In the case of the three brothers in the book, it was black, blue and brown. It coloured their lives and gave them identifies. Interesting! I don't think it did that with mine, but maybe it did. I must ask them.

I want you to read this book. It will take you into a different, scarier world (if that is possible). The main character is BB, his mother's blue eyed boy, but he is damaged. He suffers from terrible migraines, brought on by strong smells and stress. I get those too for the same reasons so I sympathised with him. He lives mainly in his imagination. He writes fiction on his web journal and he fantasizes about a girl called Bethan, alias Albertine. He plots murders, trying to escape from his hum drum ordinary world. Sometimes it is hard to draw the line between fact and fiction in this novel. I guess Joanne H. planned it that way.

I admire Joanne for pushing the boundaries. Read the book. See what you think.
