Hunting Unicorns

This is a sweet funny book full of urban (or should that be rural?) legends about the lives of the upper classes. It's undemanding to read, fairly forgettable, but at the same time it's very enjoyable. I laughed my way through much of it, and there was something genuinely moving about the relationship between the two brothers. Bella Pollen's use of Daniel (the elder brother) as one of the narrators was a very clever choice, and worked well. The rom-com side of it was fairly standard, what really did shine through was the well-written loving, and completely batty family at the centre of the novel. Sweet fun popcorn reading.
