Summary

The most personal and tender novel yet from Patrick Ness, the twice Carnegie Medal-winning author of A Monster Calls.
Adam Thorn doesn't know it yet, but today will change his life. Between his religious family, a deeply unpleasant ultimatum from his boss and his own unrequited love for his sort-of ex, Enzo, it seems as though Adam's life is falling apart. At least he has two people to keep him sane: his new boyfriend (he does love Linus, doesn't he?) and his best friend, Angela. But all day long, old memories and new heartaches come crashing together, throwing Adam's life into chaos. The bindings of his world are coming untied one by one; yet in spite of everything he has to let go, he may also find freedom in the release.
From the New York Times best-selling author of A Monster Calls comes a raw, darkly funny and deeply affecting story about the courage it takes to live your truth.

Quality production and narration but the story itself lacks any meaningful purpose or interest

Such a shame, I loved ‘a monster calls’ and was was keen to try something new by Patrick Ness. This title had been nominated on the shortlist for the Carnegie award, so I was hoping it would carry a similar punch of emotion and draw me into the characters world in the same way.

It didn’t - quite simply the characters are completely flat and the plot bumbles from one cliché to another. The story lacks heart, lacks humour and sadly for me personally I just didn’t find any enjoyment from this.

I listened to the end in the hope that I could find something to take away from the experience, sadly it wasn’t to be.
