This was an accidental reread for me, I was just going to see if the opening scene was as brilliant as I remembered, and it was even more so. This is a brilliant and beautiful novel. It’s not all flowers and honeybees, but the message ‘mate, I think you are just you and there’s nothing the matter with that’ comes through loud and clear. Aggie and Peter are just delightful, obviously Vic and Edith were so well done..it probably should have felt stereotypical, but even on the second read it didn’t x just loved Sam so much
