A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon . read for book club in 2006 ."This is an amazingly subtle & accurate description of middle-aged George's disintegration. Not at all a bother to read - and well worth the time.
A Spot of Bother (Paperback) - I always think books find you. Katie is hard work but is with Ray because she wants to be. Enjoyed this much more than Curious Incident .
Begins quite irritating, then becomes extremely funny, ends movingly tender.
Stunning and hilarious tale of suburban 'normality'.
A Spot of Bother, Mark Haddon. Dec '11-Jan '12. Gently comical verging on boring.
