Submarine | [Joe Dunthorne]

Submarine

Hello. I'm Oliver Tate, the protagonist. I am likely to use words like protagonist and, moments later, words like twonk. My ambitions are as follows: to find out why my father sometimes stays in bed for days at a time; to find out why my mother's getting surfing lessons - and probably more - from a hippy-looking twonk; and to lose my virginity before it becomes legal - in just over a year.

Publisher's Summary

Hello. I'm Oliver Tate, the protagonist. I am likely to use words like protagonist and, moments later, words like twonk. My ambitions are as follows: to find out why my father sometimes stays in bed for days at a time; to find out why my mother's getting surfing lessons - and probably more - from a hippy-looking twonk; and to lose my virginity before it becomes legal - in just over a year. There are other, lesser characters in the book: Jordana, who is my love interest, despite her eczema. Zoe, whose only real school friend is a dinner lady. I feel sorry for Zoe which, in turn, makes me feel better about my own life. Then there's my friend Chips, an outstanding bully. He made our Religious Education teacher cry. This book might not change my life. But there is no telling how you will react...

    "disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It should have been made clear that this book is aimed at teenagers.


    What was most disappointing about Joe Dunthorne’s story?

    It didn't live up to any of its reviews. It was completely humourless the sound was awful and the narrator was one of the worst I've heard on audio book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Weird accent, incomprehensible in parts.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. I didn't listen to more than two hours of it.
    I'll never get those two hours back.
