If somebody would ask me:"Which book would you read twice?" Well, you guessed right! "Martyn Pig", of course!
At first, I thought it wouldn't be that interesting because I had to read it at school. Then I totally got addicted to it.
But let me start explaining the book:
The whole book is about a 14-year-old boy called Martyn, whose father is a drunkard and not caring anything for his son. But one time as his father is heavyly drunken, he accidently fell onto the fireplace and died. As the time passed by, Martyn is unsure to tell the accident to the police and searches for help from his best friend Alex. But then for sure they get involved in difficult situations, like blackmail.
But if you want to know, how they find a solution, you have to read the story...
I can only recommend this novel, because it will keep you awake for many nights. It's one of the best english books I've ever read. Not just because it is educating in therms like alcohol, it also combines many different topics like crime, drama and romance.
And if the newspaper "Independent" says that it could become a cult novel, I would even go one step further and replace the "could" with a "will"!
So far, get it bought and get addicted, too. :)
