Review:

“Funny, sharply observed, and unexpectedly moving... The connections are ingenious and there are some very dark undertones, admirably handled.” —The Times (London)

“A moving story with a twist about how our lives touch others in ways we don't even realise. If you loved One Day by David Nicholls, this is for you—and will stay with you long after the last page.” —Cosmopolitan (UK)

“A richly comic but intuitive novel. . . both funny and touching.”—The Bookseller (UK)

"Smoothly written, Watson's latest novel proves he has a gift for tender prose and emotive storytelling... an intelligent, witty and heartwarming tale with a significant message -- and his most accomplished book to date"--Time Out (London)

"There are eleven good reasons to read this fine, funny, classy book – and those are just three. You'll find the others for yourself..."--Danny Wallace, author of Yes Man

"A seriously good book by a very funny man"--Metro (UK)

“Brilliantly hilarious and hilariously brilliant.”—Stephen Fry

“I hugely recommend. Gentle, compassionate, unusual, and thought-provoking. Expected a fun read and got something better.” --Chris Cleave, author of "Little Bee"

"The ghost of Hugh Grant lurks within the pages of this novel, a pleasing London-set romantic comedy complete with a cast of quirky supporting characters."--The New York Times
