    DNF.I thought this book is a romantic kind of book So when I start reading it, it is a romantic book About finding love at the first sight, the unlucky one and the clueless one But thei read theconfuse I become It seems this book is also about cross culture between west and east I try and try to keep going But I give up I do not feel THAT chemical connection with the writing style Hence I can not feel any connection at all with the characters.

    For the most part pedestrian, relying on stereotypical characters and clich d narrative Tony Parson s mildly diverting novels certainly served a purpose in the late 1990 s early 2000 s when they first starting coming out giving permission and opening the door the perhaps previously non book reading 30 40 something lads men to read about and indulge in stories of other men and the various life dilemmas faced by the pre millennial male in modern society, providing characters they could ident For the most part pedestrian, relying on stereotypical characters and clich d narrative Tony Parson s mildly diverting novels certainly served a purpose in the late 1990 s early 2000 s when they first starting coming out giving permission and opening the door the perhaps previously non book reading 30 40 something lads men to read about and indulge in stories of other men and the various life dilemmas faced by the pre millennial male in modern society, providing characters they could identify with and life choices they could relate to.Ultimately though, these novels are uninspiring, verging on the lazy After the success of Man Boy the following novels from Parsons essentially followed and relied on the same narrative template.Whatever happened to the former enfants terrible of the UK music press, who along with Julie Burchill terrorised the staid, conservative and self indulgent writings of their elder music journalist peers Well I guess they grew up, like we all do but maybe along the way some of that fire has certainly been lost, that attention grabbing and exciting music journalism became by comparison, utterly mundane in these generic modern contemporary novels These novels by Tony Parsons, whilst largely proficient, lack excitement and inspiration ultimately betraying all that early promise Unless of course all that kicking against the establishment was merely a pose, a pretension symptomatic of the time and perhaps rooted in an underlying and cynical careerist agenda all along who knows Whilst Parson was initially kicking against the establishment back in the late 1970 s, he then quite decidedly became the establishment an inevitable transition perhaps, but such a revolt into style doesn t necessarily have to equate to such a literary decline Where Parsons once had so much to say, there now seems so little to be told Parsons is now reportedly a staunch supporter of the UK Conservative Party and now apparently rails against people having tattoos need I sayThere is in the end, nothing particularly bad about these novels they are proficient and mildly diverting, but they do lack any real excitement, seem bereft of inspiration and are ultimately disposable

    I wonder how much Tony Parsons bases his characters on himself his books always seem very personal.This one is sweet without being saccharine, and still engaging and very fun The characters are all very much present and well formed even the secondary ones I liked Alfie although I couldn t get worked up enough to love him, but I did really love his Nan She s the kind of person I d like to be.Parsons is very good at looking at family, and he made me think about my own as I was reading I love I wonder how much Tony Parsons bases his characters on himself his books always seem very personal.This one is sweet without being saccharine, and still engaging and very fun The characters are all very much present and well formed even the secondary ones I liked Alfie although I couldn t get worked up enough to love him, but I did really love his Nan She s the kind of person I d like to be.Parsons is very good at looking at family, and he made me think about my own as I was reading I loved the Changs, of course, and their noisy closeness, and I was sad when the yonger Changs decided to move to the suburbsbut it was realistic that they d leave their bad city neighborhood for the suburbs.Parsons is also good at looking at loneliness, and come to think about it, that s a logical extension of looking at family, isn t it I don t own any Parsons, but I d like to

    Enjoyed this Had to keep reminding myself that it wasn t an autobiography.Yes, main character was unlikeable at times but this only added to his charm.Another of Tony Parson s that I have enjoyed.

    I m getting really irritated with this book.Actually I ve finished getting irritated with it because I m not going to finish it This guy Tony Parson s a good writer So why does he use so much trickery and it s the kind of trickery that is just plain annoying.In the very beginning he tells us his wife who he loved enormously has died.Okay Tony so how d she die Fair question, no No apparently not He keeps us guessing until I feel like some kind of gossipy fishwife because all I want to kn I m getting really irritated with this book.Actually I ve finished getting irritated with it because I m not going to finish it This guy Tony Parson s a good writer So why does he use so much trickery and it s the kind of trickery that is just plain annoying.In the very beginning he tells us his wife who he loved enormously has died.Okay Tony so how d she die Fair question, no No apparently not He keeps us guessing until I feel like some kind of gossipy fishwife because all I want to know is how did this broad die So he keeps referring to how he lost everything when he lost her but he won t tell us HOW SHE BLOODY DIED.Why not because because I m guessing it s some fancy literary doodad some kind of classy convention, to keep us guessing but it s a royal pain in the ass.When he finally alludes to her actual death he still won t elaborate it s all so classy and understated that finally I just found this book and this style, like I said a royal pain in the ass Good luck But it ain t for me You have a story to tell you tell it You don t play with your reader and manipulate reactions like that.Thats just plain stupid.Your readers are smarter than that JM

    Similar to Man and Boy but maybe better These books are like candy and you can t put them down To me that s a sign of a good author.
