A Spot of Bother, by Mark Haddon

Scroll down to content

I was really looking forward to this book — as I’ve mentioned before, his first book, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, is one of my favorites. This book was good, but pretty forgettable. It’s going to be tough for me to remember, a year from now, whether this one was by him or one of the less-good Nick Hornby books. It’s a good book, and a good accounting of a family going through the sorts of struggles that families go through (getting older, dealing with illness, random other dramas), just not spectacular, like Haddon’s first book. Probably good for reading over the holidays.
