The story is broken up into sections , told by each character. Martin the disgraced television presenter, Jess , the angry young woman. JJ , the ex band member who is now delivering pizza, Maureen, the mother raising a disabled son on her own . None of their lives have worked out how they hoped and all of them at the end of their rope( Pardon the pun) .
This was written so well , with paragraphs and sentences so spot on at times that you sit back and let it sink in as he managed to verbalise so clearly a moment or a feeling that it takes your breath away.
If you want a book about hope, unlikely friendship , new beginnings and yes depression then go read this as soon as you can . Now off I go to find every other book Mr Hornby has ever written.
I won this book through the giveaways on goodreads.
