“One of the funniest, most original, and deeply moving novels I have read in a long time.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Okay so this is a painful admission for a Reading Addict like myself, but I got to know about this through the marvellous film of the same title. I didn’t even realise it *was* a book for a while (for some reason, I always missed the very start of the film). Eventually I realised, put it on my TBR list and got round to reading it a short while ago.
It turns out that all those catch-phrases and snappy, often bizarre exchanges that we love about the film are lifted straight off the page. There are bits missing from the film of course (aren’t there always?).
