    Will does not want children, but he does see the point of single mothers, especially if they look like Julie Christie. When he meets Marcus, whose parents have split up and who is being persecuted by bullies, Will finds that he has a lot to learn.

    Michael Dillman says: "Charming story, even if you've already seen movie."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to About A Boy the most enjoyable?

    Julian Rhind-Tutt's delivery was great. Considering I had already seen the movie with Hugh Grant as the protagonist, it was nice to have the book read by someone who gave off a very similar demeanor.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of About A Boy?

    Of course, the most memorable moment has to be Dead Duck Day.


    Which character – as performed by Julian Rhind-Tutt – was your favorite?

    Will and Marcus are both great. It's their relationship that makes this story so interesting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Simply put, I just enjoy the story. The way the rag-tag band of characters, each with their own flaws, end up mingling together into an ultimately tight-knit crew is a fun journey.


    Any additional comments?

    I would definitely recommend this book for an enjoyable read with an assortment of interesting characters with an assortment of interesting flaws.
