I absolutely loved this book. There was a lot of talk about it and it kept coming up on all the top sellers lists, so I bought it. I didn't really know what to expect in regards to the story and I'm so glad. It grabbed my attention straight away and kept me gripped the whole way through. A story about two 'normal people' and their relationship with each other, so ordinary and yet so complicated as, I suppose, are all of our relationships. I think this novel spoke volumes about not only relationships but also about class, money, intellect and growing up. A really enjoyable read.
