    A short, light read by way of a change and I haven t read Nick Hornby for a while.The first story concerns a boy s first time and his life as a frustrated frustrating 15 year old He makes an unexpected discovery which involves his newly acquired video recorder which will eventually lead to the first time But it s not remotely what you d expect 3 sThe second concerns Mark s enormous pec...

    I m a fan of Nick Hornby s I think he s a genius when it comes to dialogue and he is a keen observer of the smaller,intimate part of the human condition He doesn t do literary grandstanding, he makes you laugh and cry and full of feelings and I think his quality is generally underrated.But these two stories were a big strange The first one is about a woman who finds out that her middle of the road son stars in porn movies because he has a ginormous cock, and the whole thing leads her to I ...

    I m bias and will 100% admit that I have a huge literary hard on for Nick Hornby.That being said, I usually don t read many short story collections This short book has 2 stories The first one is his typical somewhat awkward humorous and the second is totally different than anything I ve read by him.I thought I d loathe it, the first few pages of the story were very..annoying Scattered Not due to bad writing but due to the narrator which he constructed perfectly But, in the end, the story I m bias and will 100% admit that I have a huge literary hard on for Nick Hornby.That being said, I usually don t read many short story collections This short book has 2 stories The first one is his typical somewhat awkward humorous and the second is totally different than anything I ve read by him.I thought I d loathe it, the first few pages of the story were very..annoying Scattered Not due to ba...

    I couldn t even finish this SHORT STORY book because it was just that bad Going through the last SIX pages was just too much for me It s so boring, so horribly written, and just not interesting in the least bit The first story seemed promising at first by the very first page, but then it just got confusing Which, whatever, maybe Nick really thinks this is how young teens think Just a jumble of thoughts and going out of order with things It just did...

    Not sure that the short story is Hornby s best medium.

    I knew from the plot summary that this book was going to contain two short stories, both containing sex That made me nervous especially with the attention 50 Shades of Gray has been getting, I ve been thinking about how confused most Americans are in the area of sexuality In my opinion, sex is best experienced in the context of a loving, monogamous relationship Besides, aren t most book jackets that mention sex just a red flag that the book is going to be gimmick fil...

    This is another Short Story that Nick Hornby has written, that appears in a few collection novels and but also got published on its own as part of the Penguins pocket collection Of all of Nick Hornby s short stories to date, this is likely my second least favorite but with that said though it is still an often funny, surprisingly sweet and sorta scary little tale It tells the story of how a young man lost his virginity, thanks to his kn...
