Journal Entry 1 by book-man-8 from Tübingen, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Thursday, October 20, 2005
Nick Hornby is moving on. There are new ideas in this book. 4 people are "meeting" under very special circumstances: they all want to kill themselves at the same place and the same time. And of course they end up not doing it. Going together on a search of the meaning of life.. Or something. It is interesting. It is well written. But it lacks something even if I cannot point what. Hornby's book is like a fractional view into present day british mentality, much disturbed, deranged and living for trivias. But it's not all...

Took this from the OBCZ four days ago and have already finished it. It was a very interesting idea, well written and I especially like how he created the four different characters mainly by the way HOW they were telling their story. OK, Jess was a little too much sometimes, but then she was the one with the most interesting charcter and I liked it when she said things like: JJ could have put a sort of ramp up to my sentences to help people skateboard down from them. All in all an enjoyable read, even though I have been missing something, too, especially in the end. It's not that I always need a happy ending. But that was no real ending for me.

Impressing! How can someone write a book so intensivly melancholic, philosophic and funny at the same time?
A really moving lecture! Thank you for sending, blups25!

The book will probably be released in the bcz Dornstetten as soon as it is open again.
