Reviews of About a Boy (1998)
Review by kmr (2003-05-19)
I loved the movie and I loved this book. If you met Will somewhere, you might envy him because on the surface, he seems like he has it made. But he doesn't. More than most other books, I learned about what it's like to be someone else. The relationships between the characters, how they fit together and made their own family, and Will's evolution were interesting, amusing, and satisfying.
