Jonathan Turner of Waterstone's, Darlington on A Spot of Bother :
"I developed a strange affliction while I was reading this book. I started wanting to read it out loud to whoever was around me at the time. That was fine when it was my wife, but it wasn't so good on the train. There were just so many bits that I thought were worth quoting. I only laughed out loud twice but he's got such an easy and amusing style I wanted to share it with others."
This is Mark Haddon's follow-up to his amazing debut, The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time - a mordant, darkly humorous look at family relationships, which is almost uncomfortably true-to-life as it allows the reader to look into the everyday life of George, and the impact on his family as his mind gradually unravels in a miasma of paranoia.
