Journal Entry 1 by maroula on Sunday, December 07, 2008
Personally I appreciate Tony Parsons' way of writing about love through tough family relationships. His novels are always about people dealing with change and he creates such truthful characters that one always tends to recognise parts of their own lives. This book is about men, love and relationships with Alfie Budd as the main character who found the perfect woman with whom to spend the rest of his life, and then lost her. He doesn't believe you get a second chance at love. Returning to the England he left behind during the brief, idyllic time of his marriage, Alfie finds the rest of his world collapsing around him. He takes comfort in a string of pointless, transient affairs with his students at Churchill's Language School, and he tries to learn Tai Chi from an old Chinese man, George Chang. Will Alfie ever find a family life as strong as the Changs'? Can he give up meaningless sex for a meaningful relationship? And how do you play it when the woman you like has a difficult child who is infatuated with a TV wrestler known as The Slab? This novel is about a man who is taking on an arduous journey which is full of overwhelming emotion laughter and tears, biting social comment. Tony Parsons made me genuinely care for Alfie...
