Submarine by Joe Dunthorne

Hello. I’m Oliver Tate, the protagonist.

My ambitions are as follows:
(1) To find out why my father sometimes stays in bed for days at a time.
(2) To find out why my mother’s getting surfing lessons—and probably more—from a hippy-looking twonk.
(3) To lose my virginity before it becomes legal—in just over a year.

There are other, lesser characters in the book: Jordana, my love interest; Zoe, whose only real school friend is a dinner lady; and Chips, an outstanding bully. This book might not change my life. But there is no telling how you will react.

So I read a lot, usually a book a week, and this is one of the best books I've read in the past couple of years. The narrator, Oliver Tate, is hilarious and brilliant and adorable and also sometimes rude all at the same time. I fell in love with him, and found myself laughing out loud in public at certain parts, something that rarely happens to me. And certain lines were just so perfect I read them over and over. Simply enough, the book was fantastic and I definitely recommend it to all interested.

When I was reading this book it reminded me so much of Youth in Revolt (the book not the movie) Its a funny read about a boy and his life: parents, school and his first love. I urge people to read this if this is the type of genre you enjoy. Its not hard to read, and its relatively short, but it moves at a good pace.
