I have just finished this.

I feel warm and fuzzy and a bit emotional.

It's such a lovely, funny and sweet book.

If you have read it, did you love it as much as me?

If you haven't read it, I'd recommend it!!

I LOVED this book, read it a couple of years ago.

I thought it was a fantastic realistic portrayal of what a man in that situation would be like and although the situation changed the character remained true - hope that's cryptic enough not to spoil anything for anyone!

I loved this book so much I read it twice, one after the other. And also chose my MN name based on it grin

Try and get hold of the film of you can, its subtitled but also lovely.

Yes, the cat is utterly brilliant and I love how it goes everywhere with him.

Cat Annoyance indeed grin

I was trying to explain the concept of the book to DP but he couldn't really get why a story about a man trying to kill himself in a variety of ways was particularly funny!!

One of my absolute favourites

Anyone know if the authors other novels are as good?

I was just reading the reviews. One seems to be a similar sort of storyline but the other looks good, about a girl and her grandma.

I'll buy it and let you know!

I didn't like this book. I couldn't get into it. The writing was far too simplistic and even though I have liked some young adult fiction this seemed like a poor example of the genre.

I read this book earlier this year. I totally loved it. It is one of those books that stays with you for a long time.
