How To Be Good | [Nick Hornby]

How To Be Good

According to her own moral calculations, Katie Carr has earned her affair. She's a doctor, after all, and doctors are decent people, and on top of that her husband David is the self-styled Angriest Man in Holloway. When David suddenly becomes good, however, properly, maddeningly, give-away-all-his-money good, Katie's sums no longer add up, and she is forced to ask herself some very hard questions.

"Essential for all contemporary fiction collections." (Library Journal)
"Hornby is a very funny and very clever writer, and How to be Good is packed with wit and brilliance." (The Spectator)

    Story
    "A comedy that steps into religion."
    Would you try another book from Nick Hornby and/or Clare Higgins?

    Yes of course. This wasn't my favorite but hes a good author and a great narrator.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when she is loosing her mind and begins to become sarcastic at Goodnews presence.


    Could you see How To Be Good being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe with the cast of Harry Potter.

    "Great Book"

    This was a terrific book and the narrator was excellent. She was just the right voice for the telling of this story. Nick Hornby does it again.
