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.

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.
Of course, the most memorable moment has to be Dead Duck Day.
Will and Marcus are both great. It's their relationship that makes this story so interesting.
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.
I would definitely recommend this book for an enjoyable read with an assortment of interesting characters with an assortment of interesting flaws.

i really like this author.. this story is funny and it doesnt get boring.. the kid is funny. i like the characters.. although i am starting to think this author may like writing about suicide.. lol.. all in all good book.. im getting another one by the same author.. i like the english style of talking.. its refreshing at times.
A well written/read text with a wide range of techniques used throughout the book making it an ideal narrative text to study for GCSE. The dual narrative captures the reader's interest, teamed with a punchy, fast-flowing and enthralling storyline. A great book and an easy read/listen!
