No idea, sorry, not sure I will finish part one for a while. I think I'll continue to dip onto it occasionally and reminisce about the music he (and I) listened to but I'm not desperate to know what happens next...

Just pondering whether to start part 2. Should I?

Erm, not sure (glances at discarded copy on bedside table)...

I read a bit more this week - I think I will continue to dip into it from time to time.

Just seen this after a break from mn to read more!

I am stuck about 1/3 of the way through - I am enjoying the trip down memory lane (reading Dracula, listening to Echo and the Bunnymen etc) but I thought a lot of the teenage boys I knew were idiots and he's not doing anything to dispel that idea.

How far through are you? Haven't reached the death yet and I think it might improve after that...

anyone else reading this? I am half way through.. I picked it out cos the Guardian review said it was the best thing in ages and it has such good reviews from a whole plethora of international critics. It is certainly great in terms of taking you back to the 90s (albeit a Norwegian 90s!). What are your thoughts....
