"It's well paced, nicely written and highly entertaining. It's also a very rum concoction indeed -- as if someone had sandwiched a David Nicholls novel in the middle of a comedy thriller, using a Tardis."
"A genre-defying time-travel tale -- part adventure, part love story, part comedy, part dissertation on bereavement ... a breathtakingly insightful evocation of grief."
—Sunday Times (UK)
"Robert Webb's effortlessly enjoyable debut novel is soaked in and a wry comment on nostalgia ... his execution is smart, unexpected and full of pop cultural nous. It's also a ripping adventure yarn ... Tender, thoughtful and terrific fun."
"Splendidly bleak, fabulously Nineties, and enjoyable."
—Daily Mail (UK)
"Come Again is excellent: moving, funny, and packed with great characters. It also has a slam-bang action ending."—Ian Rankin, author of the Inspector Rebus series
"Funny, brilliant, clever and unpredictable; I gobbled it up."
—Jenny Colgan, USA Today bestselling author of The Bookshop on the Corner
Praise for HOW NOT TO BE A BOY
"Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It's profound, touching, personal yet universal . . . I loved it"
"With enormous poignancy and insight . . . Webb's early portrait of himself as a hapless underdog navigating the boulder-strewn path of masculinity is vividly drawn and very funny . . . Echoes of Adrian Mole"
"Takes us deftly from hilarity to heart-stopping hurt . . . A truly great read, full of heart"
"Frank and compelling ... Laugh-out-loud funny ... also, in parts, blink-back-tears sad. Why would I blink back tears rather than give full rein to the emotion? Well, Webb can explain"
Mail On Sunday
"Written with wit and clarity, How Not To Be a Boy is a funny, rueful, truthful book. I enjoyed every page"
