realize his mistake, that sleeping with another woman besides his wife, EVEN FOR ONE NIGHT, is WRONG That s the only reason I kept reading But my waiting didn t pay off Through whole book I was reading Harry s wining how life is unfair, how everyone is talking to him that he is hopeless romantic wtf , how he is the victim that wife left him He also didn t tell his parents that he cheated on his wife, so they also fell sorry for him He didn t have a job and didn t come to mind that he could sell his sports car so he could pay off mortgage on house I feel the only reason for this stupidity is to feel sorry for him after some hooligans tear roof of the car In short, after the fact that HE cheated on his wife, that huge and only important matter in the book, isn t emphasized but disregarded, everything else is just b shit There s so many idiotic sentences in the book.I don t know what was the point of the book, really The world is NOT to blame for you cheating on your wife, the problem is YOU, and everything that comes with it is also your fault Truth That s what I kept thinking as I was reading this book It s true and it s raw It s sad and it s happy Tony Parsons has a certain way of making the characters so real I felt I knew Harry Silver Really knew him, as a friend.I guess stories like this don t really need to be complicated to really draw readers in In the first few chapters I was devastated when Gina and Harry break up I actually felt pain for Harry during his tiny mid life crisis when he sleeps with another woman The bo Truth That s what I kept thinking as I was reading this book It s true and it s raw It s sad and it s happy Tony Parsons has a certain way of making the characters so real I felt I knew Harry Silver Really knew him, as a friend.I guess stories like this don t really need to be complicated to really draw readers in In the first few chapters I was devastated when Gina and Harry break up I actually felt pain for Harry during his tiny mid life crisis when he sleeps with another woman The book puts across the reality that is life That relationships can t be all romance all the time The fact that people do fall in and out of love The pressure that people have in today s society to be happy and romantic all the time I don t know why people kid themselves into thinking being with someone is an easy task It s really not, espeically when you re with eachother for life and have a family.It made me empathise with little Pat, a child of divorce The majority of my friends and exfriends have had divorced parents but they never really talk about it What it was like when they intially split up I m so very lucky to have parents that have stayed together The book brings to light the horrendous damage that divorce can bring upon a child and a parent The quote that really got me You need a license to drive a car You need a license to own a dog, but anyone can bring a child into the world It s true Of course I m not at liberty to really give my oppinion on parenting and in some cases love itself I m only seventeen.I ve kinda veered off the point of this review In a nutshell, I totally loved it The truth of life that nothing is really a happy ending It s sad, but true and that s what I really like in a book This is an engaging, smooth read and I would have rated it higher had I never read seen Kramer v Kramer I really felt this was borderline plagarism and was very surprised the author could get away with recreating so much of that story, right down to details like carrying the child when he is injured on the playground I am also surprised that 25 years later this story plays well When Kramer came out, most men didn t have a clue about real hands on parenting and a man with custody was unhear This is

recreating so much of that story, right down to details like carrying the child when he is injured on the playground I am also surprised that 25 years later this story plays well When Kramer came out, most men didn t have a clue about real hands on parenting and a man with custody was unheard ofthe Mr Mom stories made great fodder Today, I d be hard pressed to think of a young father who does not fully participate in every aspect of parenting not housework mind youwe haven t come THAT far The protaganist does have some self discoveries that were not covered in Kramer, but mostly it is the same book I definately preferred About a Boy Nick Hornby has no competition whatsoever from Tony Parsons Parsons tries to be funny Fails, of course, but then it s madepathetic by the fact that he totally pulls the heart strings to their fullest extent at the end And that doesn t quite work It was almost boring Almost as bad as Jack Sheffield That s saying something. How on earth did this sell a million copies Do not read reading Man and Boy is like listening to an easy listening pop song it is sweet, easy to guess, nothing in particular it goes well, as usual, and everybody likes it it is just i am not really into pop music.though is beatifully written, i dont find any sense to fill up my soul after reading this book it is just a too easy to guess and happy ending story, good for the young couples i think it will be better if the story of the father and the son read man and boy is brought updeep reading Man and Boy is like listening to an easy listening

AND HE NEVER ONCE THOUGHT HE D BE ON HIS OWN Harry had it all a beautiful wife, an adorable four year old son, and a high paying media job But on the eve of his thirtieth birthday, with one irresponsible act, he threw it all away Suddenly he finds himself an unemployed single father trying to figure out how to wash his son s hair the way Mommy did and whether green spaghetti is proper breakfast food This brilliantly engaging novel will tug at your heart as Harry learns to become a father to his son and a son to his aging father, takes stabs at finding new love, and makes the hardest decision of his life I really wanted to read this book and finally got round to it I felt it started with a bit of promise but kind of didn t get better Meet Harry, happily married with a little boy and a good job He cheats on his wife and she leaves him and also his contract isn t renewed at work His wife is very upset as she gave up her dream to go to Tokyo to be with Harry and decides that she s going to go as a result She leaves their son behind and Harry now has to be a parent to his son, a job that took h I really wanted to read this book and finally got round to it I felt it started with a bit of promise but kind of didn t get better Meet Harry, happily married with a little boy and a good job He cheats on his wife and she leaves him and also his contract isn t renewed at work His wife is very upset as she gave up her dream to go to Tokyo to be with Harry and decides that she s going to go as a result She leaves their son behind and Harry now has to be a parent to his son, a job that took him 10 minutes a day previously He does step up to the plate and makes a go of it but still feels like the injured party in the whole situation This was annoying I mean, Harry seems like a nice enough guy but apologise to your wife and accept you did wrong And no, you don t get a medal for being a single father for a short time Gina annoyed me to an extent too, she just left her son and went to Tokyo, Seriously Harry s parents were likable though and added a nice tough I m glad Harry accepted the challenges in raising his son, but he had little choice anyway And the book ended the way I thought it would so there is an element of predictability.One this I didn t like was they are in England but mum is mom in the book And they talk about soccer It would have been good to use the English terms and spellings My book is a US version but everyone knows that mum and Football are the same as mom and Soccer This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here The book kept me going as it was an easy read Thoughts and feelings of the main character were described in details which made Harry Silver closer to the readers And, although I would never spend my time with someone as unrealistic and whiny as him, the thing is that there are people who really cannot see the faults in their actions and somehow manage to make themselves victims This is probably why someone would not like this book, you got to be very understanding with Harry It was not easy The book kept me going as it was an easy read Thoughts and feelings of the main character were described in details which made Harry Silver closer to the readers And, although I would never spend my time with someone as unrealistic and whiny as him, the thing is that there are people who really cannot see the faults in their actions and somehow manage to make themselves victims This is probably why someone would not like this book, you got to be very understanding with Harry It was not easy getting close to the last 50 pages to see that he really does not see past his own problems and identity crisis Further, the biggest dissapointment was the portrayal of Gina s character after she went to Japan Somehow, her lifelong dreams were presented as selfish and whimsy acts while her love for Pat was diminished to a level of mere custody fight To conclude, I gave this book 4 stars because I read it through Harry s eyes and feelings Not the feelings I would have after cheating on my partner but the feelings this hopeless romantic had Not the feelings I would have everytime I see my father but the feelings this insecure young man had And I would recommend everyone to do the same, just try to understand him
