THE PURPOSE OF A MAN by Daniel Brevitt


Lad Lit

This is easily the best indie work of fiction I've read yet. If you like David Nicholls and Nick Hornby, you'll love this - it's right up there with the best of what I believe they call 'lad lit' - SO well written, intelligent without being either self-consciously so, or overly wordy; it's funny, realistic, beautifully observed, sad in parts. Easily as good as other works of this genre that are traditionally published.

There is no in depth storyline, there aren't any of the "wow, I never guessed that" plot twists that most people expect in fiction these days, but it doesn't matter because it's just a joy to read. The character of Robert Galvin is a masterpiece. Absolutely loved it, can't recommend it too highly.
