About a Boy

Finished About a Boy by Nick Hornby. After much thought, I've decided that this is a coming of age novel, not for twelve year old Marcus, but for thirty-six year old Will. A funny and satisfying read. I like the way the chapters alternated between Marcus' and Will's perspective. The film adaptation is pretty faithful to the book until three quarters of the way through, then it veers off in a different direction. I think I'd like to read more of Hornby's work.
