TEXT Ð The Amateur Science of Love Ö Craig Sherborne

Colin dreams of escaping his parents' New Zealand farm for a grand stage career He makes it to London and a disastrous audition before meeting Tilda beautiful Tilda older an A fantastic book I found myself compelled to keep reading the story of two deeply flawed characters and had a strange voyeuristic lovehate feeling as I watched their volatile and unhealthy relationship progress I love reading about characters who challenge me I didn't particularly like the characters in this book but they were incredibly real and made me feel so many emotions pity respect disgust and anger Highly recommended
