Review by: Nigel Paresis on March 30, 2011 :
Listen, I could be witty (easily) or tell you a thematically relevant story to go along with this review (because I've got a million of them), but honestly, all you need to pay attention to are the next four words I'm typing:

Get this book now.

Andy Conway has absolutely nailed the uncontrollable insanity of being a teenage boy in that unreal period between faking a maturity you haven't the vaguest clue about and being hit in the face with more bloody maturity than you could ever dream about. Everything here rings true: characters, dialogue, and the situation as well, and it had the added bonus of making me have to dig out my old Joy Division albums and remember when I was one of those cool outsider kids with impeccable taste in music... because, you know, obviously I was.

And, obviously, so was Andy Conway.

As a bonus, you'll find at the end of the novelette a chapter from his next novel, Train Can't Bring Me Home, which if you are anything like me will ensure that Andy Conway becomes one of those authors whose novels you just pick up as soon as you see there's a new one to grab.

Obsession can be a lovely thing.
