Synopsis: Sam and Hannah only have the holidays to find ‘The One’. Their lobster. But instead of being epic, their summer is looking awkward. They must navigate social misunderstandings, the plotting of well-meaning friends, and their own fears of being virgins for ever to find happiness. But fate is at work to bring them together. And in the end, it all boils down to love.
200words (or less) review: This was such a great book to read. I picked it up on a whim and adored it from the first page.
Lobsters is told in alternating chapters by Hannah and Sam. It’s the summer before University, they are worried about their exam results, being grown-ups and losing their virginity. Both are likable, highly entertaining and completely believable protagonists. Lobsters had me in stitches one moment followed by ‘aww’ the next.
I think I enjoyed this book so much because the characters are so brilliant. Not just Hannah and Sam but their friends and Hannah’s grandmother, I wish I could meet her in the real world. Some of those conversations… you might want to be careful reading this book in public. 😉
Highly recommended Lobsters to anyone in need of laughter, adventure and that little bit of romance.
