Some books are designed to excite, some are full of action and adventure, others romance or comedy. Still others reach into your heart and emotions in a very unique way. This is one such book. Man and Boy has a little of everything in it, but ultimately it is a study of the relationships between a man, his father and his son.
On the face of it, Harry Silver has everything – beautiful wife, adorable son, his dream job in TV, and the sports car to match. But not for long! Harry soon discovers just how fragile it all can be.
As he watches his marriage crumble and his career slip though his fingers, Harry has to come to terms with his own weaknesses. As he starts to build a new life for himself and his son Pat, he learns what life and love are really all about.
Man and Boy is a wonderfully told story that cannot fail to touch your heart. It is touching and funny, something not achieved very often.
I really enjoyed this book. A change from the norm definitely.
