The book is Harry's diary from January, through his tribulations throughout the year and his indiscretions.
Basically, I think I would have enjoyed it a bit more if I hadn't been aware of the hype. I'm not saying it's a bad book, just - in my opinion - not as fantastic as lots of people made it out to be.
I didn't take to the main characters most of the time. I enjoyed Harry's musings in the shed, especially in regards to what the squirrels were getting up to. I certainly didn't like his and Jamie's relationship. Harry's wife Emily was just a nagging miserable woman. Harry's granddad was a great character.
As I mentioned, I was looking for some marvellous musings and writings and I didn't find that in this book. But it was an enjoyable read for all my complaints.
