PaperboyEr family and something has to give but does it mean that a boy must always give up his dreams for the tough lessons of real life Beautifully written this rich and astute evocation of a time and a place recalls a childhood at once entertainingly eccentric and endearingly ordinary I read this book in a few days Chris grows up in the 50's and uses books and movies as an escapism from his family life I loved reading about his relationship with his parents and how it influenced and shaped himI struggled slightly with the long descriptions of British movies and film and some of the books I grew up in the 70's and 80's in Gemany so none of these were familiar to me I found myself skipping some of these pages to get back to Chris's description of his family lifeI did enjoy the book and I think if I had seen the movies and been able to relive my childhood through his memoir it would have been a 5 star readI was delighted to win this book in a Goodreads giveaway
