This is a great story, very different and humorous but underneath dealing with more serious matters such as religion and family dynamics. I liked Sanskrit a lot and couldn’t help but feel empathetic. He’s dealing with a lot of issues and feels rejected and as though his life is out of control. His parents are divorced, his best friend found religion and changed drastically (we don’t find out why until quite late into the story) and he never got over his first crush. Not to mention his mother who is, to say the least, a little wacky and comes across as quite self centred.
A whole chain of events begin and take off like a runaway train when Sanskrit’s mother fails to turn up for his parent/teacher evening and he invents a lie to cover up. The story is narrated by Sanskrit with typical teenage angst, wit and sarcasm but for all that it’s warm and sensitive and MacLeod Andrews' narration reflects this brilliantly.(less)
