A Long Way Down

I just finished A Long Way Down and it took me a while to get through it.

Nick Horby's book is about four people who are planning to kill themselves and all run into each other and decide to hold off for just a bit. It's a fun premise and not a bad book, but just wasn't as gripping as I thought it could be. The four really different characters just didn't do much for me, and I wasn't feeling too much sympathy for their struggles.

I really like Horby and loved About A Boy and How to Be Good. I plan to keep following his career and reading his books, but a few more strikes and you may be out Nicky.
