I loved this book. I'm in my thirties but well aware already of the imperfections of my memory, and the way I've always liked to tell myself stories about myself to make reality more palateable. I found there was so much in this book that I could have quoted in my review - was quite hard to restrict myself!

Hi, I've just found your blog and am enjoying it so far! This book has been beguiling me from bookshop shelves, and now I am not sure if I will be able to resist it at all.

Not fair making me salivate.....of course, it actually is fair because I could have read it already. You and KfC are quite a tag team. I am really looking forward to reading it. And, while not old like Kevin (heh), I am old enough (just turned 40) to have some appreciation for the remorse caused by looking back. Great review.

I would like to read it. I haven't read Arthur and George and am still not tempted. I find memory so fascinating, the way we change things without knowing. I'm writing a diary since I'm 11 years old... Occasionally I think it would be blissful to forget or "rewrite" the past by distorting it in our minds.

I loved Arthur and George, but didn't like this one. I think Kevin is right about age being a factor - I can see myself liking this in 30 years time.

I loved this book as much as you did and wondered, when I did my review, whether you needed to be of an age (say one starting with 5 or higher) to be able to appreciate it, the whole premise of needing to look back. Younger readers have since assured me that that is not the case. On the other hand, for those of us whose age starts with 5 or more, there is an additional element to this exceptional book in the way that the author does (sympathetically) capture that inevitable erosion of memory.
