There’s something about a book character named George. they can be one of 3 things: all somewhat charming in their own way.
- a small grubby full of questions and questioning boy;
- a scruffy mongrel dog inevitably rolling in whatever smelt the worst;
- an Englishman. recognizable by leather elbow patches, cricket flannels too baggy. a domineering mother. a loser group of friends. and a loser girlfriend with a lack lustre love life.
Guess which George we had here. And no, he didn’t wear flannels and elbow patches but close!
Amusing story here as George clearly had no idea what he was about and how to deal with strange arrival in his life. But a happy ending and all was well through a series of amusing episodes. Nicely written and full of expectations fulfilled.
