    One thought on “The Radio”

    1. So we come to “The Radio” perhaps a book I wouldnt normally pick up but it was wonderful. Thank you so much to Mr Lee!Meet George Poppleton. Henpecked husband and father and one of the most loveable characters you are ever likely to meet,one day he finds an old transister radio in his loft. As it becomes a bit of an obsession, we learn about his life, whilst in the background daughter Sam and Wife Sheila plan a wedding….This book made me laugh so much, I’m glad I didnt have stitches anyw [...]

    2. I was expecting good things from this book when I started it, but never expected it to be as good as it was!We meet George who is a loveable father figure who is just a little eccentric, and his wife Shelia and daughter Sam. They are a fairly typical family with their fair share of dysfunctional attributes! George, the downtrodden husband finds an old radio that he starts tinkering around with while his wife and daughter go out and have fun while he looks after his grand daughter. The tinkering [...]

    3. This popped up on the new page of the library website, looked so charming I had to give it a go. Found the first 50 or so pages a little ropey at times but it really settled into itself.Beautiful novel about real life, very humble but yet not afraid of the hard truths. Kind of book you should read just to remind yourself how many talented authors there are and to clear your palette from the 'usual stuff'.

    4. Really really enjoyed this one. Great true to life characters which we've all met in our lives. Brilliant mix of heartwarming comedy and bittersweet tragedy. Superb twist. Cannot wait for the follow up to see what happens to poor old George.

    5. The radio is British black humour through and through. It follows the ups and downs of a family as they deal with everyday issues. An old radio is rediscovered and plays an important role in the storyline. This book will appeal to those who enjoy this type of humour.

    6. That was a weird book.To try to explain why let me put it this way: there's a literary novel here about a family coping with tragedy and how the ripples of it can still be felt years after. That's about 10% of the book. The other 90% is a Terry-and-June, 70s-sitcom-cum-farce about a hen-pecked husband and how his wife and daughter are planning an engagement party for said daughter. Meanwhile he's becoming more and more eccentric the more he listens to this old radio he found.So as you can imagin [...]

    7. Jonathan Lee asked me if I was interested in reviewing his book and very kindly sent me a gift certificate so I could get myself a copy to read. 'The Radio' is his debut novel and the first of a trilogy.This story focuses on the loveable and very thoughtful George Poppleton. A henpecked father and husband, George never fails to let his daughter Sam down when she wants to go out for the night, always babysitting his granddaughter for her. Likewise, he is always there to make cups of tea for his w [...]

    8. Brilliant stuff!This book will have you grinning then snivelling and then grinning again all in the space of a few pages! There's a host of well developed characters and it's a testament to JL's skill that you develop such familiarity and such a range of feelings toward them despite it being a relatively short book.You're sure to love George and Mollie from the outset but I found that I actually can't stand Sheila and Sam. Basically they're both just awful, awful people! At times I was actually [...]

    9. My first novel, published last week everywhere. Paperback £7.99. Kindle version only £1.99. Check out amazon, waterstones, guardian bookstore and everywhere else.

    10. I loved this Funny. The ending was a bit abrupt - room for another book there. But with books it is all about the journey and I enjoyed it
