Summary

Some people just look destined for great things. And sometimes, life has other ideas. 

Ever since The Incident, James DeWitt has stayed on the safe side. He likes to know what happens next. 

Danny Allen is not on the safe side. He is more past the point of no return. But it's funny the way life is sometimes. Just when you think you know how everything is, it surprises you. 

And redemption can come in the most unlikely forms.... 

Warm, witty and wise, Mike Gayle's new novel is a powerful story of male friendship and what we mean by success, reminding us of the simple courage at the heart of every human life.

Very touching and very funny

Loved it. Another good read by Mike Gayle, having worked with and know people affected by ABI you’ve done a very good job well done and the narrators were fantastic too well done to you both. Def recommend.

Took me a little time to get into the book but when I did I thoroughly enjoyed the story and enjoyed listening to the narrator's. Didn't want to stop listening.

An interesting journey

Reading/listening to this book is like taking a journey in two people's shoes. You get to see both Danny's and James' life from the inside. An interesting storyline challenging the readers perspective on certain disabilities and putting a human face to Aquired Brain Injury (ABI) and the impact it has on a person and their whole family. It is a "feel good" novel, although it does contain a wide range of emotions.

The man I think I know by Mike Gayle

This book is thought provoking and sensitively written. It's a lovely story and typical of Mike Gayle who, to me, is a fabulous auther.

Dull and predictable

Probably ok if you’re a teenager and like a basic and predictable story where everything works out perfectly in the end. Shallow as a puddle.
