I did read it. Although I liked it, I felt it was lacking some of the heart of his first book. There were many funny sections, but the sad parts were just a little too depressing for me. I would recommend it, but with the caution that it's definitely not as good as The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night.Originally Posted by Veruka;2726707;
On a related note, it must be kind of a double-edged knife when your first novel is so adored. You want people to like and enjoy your work, but living up the the standard of that first "golden" book must be stressful. I think that is why Harper Lee never wrote another novel after To Kill A Mockingbird.
