Ahhhh yet another amazing book by L.H Cosway. I swear this woman must have wires hooked to readers and just delivers exactly what we want.
Having met Stu in previous books, I wasn’t really all that eager to read his story because, to be perfectly candid, he seemed too dim-witted and just plain boring, so imagine my utter (and very welcome) shock when I was hooked from the first page. But again this is pure Cosway magic, she makes the most mundane characters and actions come alive with absolute wonder and by the end of the book your mind is bombarded with pure awesomeness!
I really did love the actual plot, but I have to say I wish the story had concentrated more on Stu and Andie’s relationship. Mainly because this is the first time I’ve read a student/teacher story where there isn’t any rapey undertones. And another thing that I wish had been toned down a bit was the constant references to Thomas Hardy’s “Jude the Obscure”, mainly because I LOATHE that book (that’s a rant for a whole other day but let it just be said that the book is utter poop).
But overall the book, like all Cosway’s books, were sprinkled with enough hipster references and phrases that actually made you laugh out loud in public while people looked at you like you were possessed (totally DID not happen to me…) to make you want the next book out ASAP. My absolute favourite line (and the one I will most definitely be stealing) is Trevor calling men Penis-havers. That line alone made me want Trev’s book out quicker!
