Reviews

  • A brilliant first novel by a young man of ferocious comic talent

    The Times
  • Dunthorne captures the mores of Britain today better than novelists twice his age

    New Statesman
  • Brilliant . . . laugh-out-loud enjoyable. The sharpest, funniest, rudest account of a troubled teenager's coming-of-age since The Catcher in the Rye

    Independent
  • Transplants The Catcher in the Rye to south Wales . . . Dunthorne can make you laugh like you did during double physics on a wet Wednesday afternoon

    Observer
  • A richly amusing tale of mock GCSEs, sex, death and challenging vocabulary . . . Excruciatingly funny incidents and cracking gags

    Time Out
  • Excellent . . . the wonderful, Day-Glo certainties of adolescence have rarely been so brilliantly laid out

    Independent on Sunday
