He became a father to his first child, Lorne, last summer. Now he seems to be sleeping. But the final thing is so short it is almost not a novel. Things generally seem to be getting more modest and more destructive.

Start your review of Submarine Write a review Feb 25, Jo rated it really liked it Ever wondered what it would be like if Wes Anderson got drunk on vodka and watched the entire box set of The Inbetweeners in one night?
Reader meet Submarine. Submarine meet reader. Aah, and herein lies the conundrum. I just dont find it funny because Im a horrible, stuffy prude but I adore Wes Anderson.
This could have gone either way and I think I knew this risk Ever wondered what it would be like if Wes Anderson got drunk on vodka and watched the entire box set of The Inbetweeners in one night? This could have gone either way and I think I knew this risk before I started this book.
I am nothing if not a risk taker. Did I enjoy this book? Very much so. Did I laugh at this book? I barked like a seal a few times, so yes, again… very much so. Is it a bit vile and vulgar and is there lots of graphic sex and fumblings? Ho yes. Our imaginary conversations would be about lots of excellent things from films to music, to whether it would make him uncomfortable if I touched his hair , I really, really enjoyed it. This is exactly what happened with Submarine.
I battled well ok, maybe battled is getting a bit giddy with the decision to whether I should class this as young adult. Plus, classing this book as YA would make it infinitely cooler because YA fiction is all the rage right now and all the indie kids read it and pretend they liked it before it got famous. If we had gone to high school with each other I would have watched him cautiously from behind my ill-advised fringe and think that he was odd and trouble.
I loved seeing the world through his warped-tinted spectacles. I would say osculate. But I laughed. The only gripe I had with this book is that I wish certain parts had been explored more in depth. Theme Tune. Heh… heh…. Actually, that um… joke would have been funnier if this song had been written for this story. Also um… with regards to Welsh Week.
If you snog like a dentist, you're clearly a loser
