    David Thewlis was a writer before he was an actor This shows, in his novel The Late Hector Kipling Most authors want their narrators or main storyteller to be a hero, or at least someone you like or want to be Not Thewlis In the tradition of Catcher in the Rye, the narrator is a complete antagonist He is someone you wouldn t want to know This does not make the book unreadable, however, but perhaps evenso, as you really want him to come to his senses, but no, he is a selfish, self ser David The...

    Well, that was weird XD Which is to be expected, I think Thewlis strikes me as a pretty weird guy so it makes sense that the story he felt the need to tell would be so bizarre The summary s use of the word surreal hits the nail directly on the head, in my opinion, but because truth really is stranger than fiction so often, nothing that happens is truly unbelievable It s perhaps a little unbelievable ...

    This is brilliant Thewlis style of writing is fresh and unlike anything I have read The story is very good Hector Kipling is an artist, who, seemingly, is searching for the perfect type of sorrow No one in his family has died, and when his girlfriend Eleni s mother gets severley burnt in an accident, he is jealous that she gets to experience the kind of sadness that he has been ...

    Well, huh This definitely was an interesting read Strange is a word I d use to describe the actual plot Dead on is how I d describe the narration though I suppose it would be rather tongue in cheek of me to do so The voice of the work I m in love with and hence, the star rating There were parts I laughed out loud at, which is somewhat rare But Mr Thewlis definitely created a living breathing person in Hector Kipling, and...
