NEW BOY is a dark modern comedy about the hormonal angst of a Jewish lad growing up in north west London's bagel belt Sutcli. Interesting read told from the point of view of a precocious but sexually confused Jewish English school boy I m sure at least some of that was redundant His confiding in a friend but not taking you too seriously narrative style is consistently interesting and the story that he tells is familiar enough to be compelling while being honest and original enough to be entertaining The book suffered a bit from the same confusion as its protagonist The reader couldn t really tell where it was all headed and while that strung you along you were glad when it was finished but not sure if it was all worth while There is an elaborate decades party described that was the unintended highlight for me It somehow felt real than the rest of the book I somehow guessed the surprise reveal a bit before I think I was supposed to and that made the later part of the book interesting as well Overall this was not a bad first attempt Wild Man Creek (Virgin River, read told from the point of view of a precocious but sexually confused Jewish English school boy I m sure at least some of that was Homewrecker reader couldn t Make your own model forts & castles really tell where it was all headed and while that strung you along you were glad when it was finished but not sure if it was all worth while There is an elaborate decades party described that was the unintended highlight for me It somehow felt Tremors of Fury (The Days of Ash and Fury real than the How Julian and Nigel Turned Each Other Gay (Inadvertently), or So They Both Claim rest of the book I somehow guessed the surprise

Ffe has managed to pull off a worthy British companion to Portnoy's Complaint Jay RaynerObserver Well writtenclever and very. Uggh The protagonist is just so horrible It goes beyond adolescent egotism or narcissism At times I felt he was psychotic It was made worse that the story seemed to be narrated from some time in the future after the story s events had already taken place but there was no sign that the protagonist had grown or gained any real perspective The boy we re left with at the end of the novel is just as entitled confused mean and lacking in empathy as he was when we first met him The only notable exceptions for me were the decades party and some of the dialogues with Barry during which the protagonist took on the air of a real person
