I like challenging books that make you think, and leave you happy that you did. Typically, I find character driven literary fiction the most satisfying, although I in no way think of myself as a serious literary critic.

About a Boy

About a Boy - Nick Hornby Probably more of a 3.5, but I'm rounding up in this instance.

A fun, quick read about kids with separated parents trying to find their way and figure out who they are, and the adults in their lives who are just as much trying to do the same. Through the dysfunction, they're able to offer each other help along the way. I appreciated the author's descriptions of life as it is, and not how it should be. I found this book similar to some Tom Perrotta books, which is a good thing, although I find Perrotta more rewarding to read.
