This book is about a troubled young Englishman Patrick Oxtoby an unlikeable character that has many problems relating to others. Patrick moves to a seaside town to start a new life after his girlfriend tells him she cannot marry him. We are not told the reason why. He moves into a boarding house that houses other young people and finds a job doing car repairs. Patrick behaves oddly and makes wrong choices. However, I was stunned with where the the author took this character. It is a dark but compelling read.
