This book means so much to me, it's absolutely my favourite book I've ever read. I recommend this book to every single person who asks for a recommendation and I totally recommend buying it if you're thinking about it.
Beautifully written and the characters are the most loveable characters I've ever read. The story is heartbreaking and hilarious, it has you laughing one second and then the next you're crying uncontrollably.
Seriously, buy this book and treasure every page like I do ❤❤❤
It's a bit of a wallow, but rewarding for all that. Very much a book of the Aughties.
Doug, Russ and Claire are the lynchpins and the author details their psychological messes in a way that completely endears them to the reader. It is fun to be part of all this.
The surrounding Parker family again match those TV types we all know, but that is not to denigrate, but to praise: Tropper's writing resonates with fellow feeling and that's what makes it all so enjoyable.
This is not a deep novel, probably more sentimental than analytical. That's a plus because if that's the sort of book you feel like reading, you're in for a treat.
The first novel of JT's that I have read, and quite far down my list of 'must reads' for this Summer, I thought it was wonderful.
Humourous and human would probably be the two words I would use to sum it up. How does one come to terms with the loss of a loved one? Very much like this, I imagine...
It didn't make me cry (not that that's a negative!), but I did feel sorrow for Doug and Russ and was easily able to empathise.
