Reviews

Hilarious, sophisticated, compulsive . . . a bitingly clever novel of ideas, on a subject almost nobody else has written about - how would a totally good person get on in the modern world? * Sunday Times *
A dark espresso-length comedy that nobody else could have written * New Statesman *
The writing is so funny and the set-pieces so brilliant * The Times *
Perhaps the most poised piece of writing Hornby has yet produced . . . only this writer has the wit and the stringency to take on this easy comedy and draw compelling, even universal pathos from it * Observer *
Brilliantly funny * Heat *
Pins you in your armchair and won't let go . . . How to be Good? How to be bloody marvellous more like * Mail on Sunday *
It does exactly what it says on the cover. Hornby's prose is artful and effortless, his spiky wit as razored as a number-two cut * Independent *
