I had to post about The Boy is Back . I enjoyed this one despite some things I would normally not like. This author is accomplished and inventive. Some thoughts:
- · The format of the book is non traditional. It is entirely in text strings, emails and other devices. As a result there is no point of view to speak of. Initially I found it weird but then suddenly saw how this mirrors how lives are actually panning out for lots of people – living through their phones.
- · There is a lot of humour in this book
- · The plot lines are not completely unbelievable but still interesting. The fine line between eccentricity and senility. How family dynamics play out.
· Perfect for lifting your mood – light, fun, funny, romantic
