George Worth is a grumpy lifestyle columnist. He hates fashion, mobile phones, computers and Young People. At night he goes home to a borrowed Labrador and feelings of guilt about his dead wife.
Justin Smith is a Young Person. A bright newcomer, he’s always on his mobile to his girlfriend, surfing the Net and keeping abreast of the latest trends.
Then comes the day when Justin’s girlfriend throws him out and he finds himself having to share a flat with George. As the women around them watch and wonder, both men start to work out what really matters among the distractions of modern life.
This story was so different but so enjoyable. Its grumpy old man George, befriending male Gen Y plus a couple of years Justin. It took a couple of chapters to get use to the writing/narration but after say 15 mins, I was glued. It was lovely to see how, although both guys are so different, enhance each other's lives.
