Set in the 90's, this is the story of a young, unemployed man, living in a small town on the outskirts of Liverpool. Unbeknown to him, he is granted three wishes. Through the monotony of daily life he first innocently wishes for some excitement, and very soon this wish is granted. Unfortunately, excitement comes in many forms, and his life soon dramatically changes. The story, language, and characters are very real, with humour, sadness, love, emotion and horror. "Wishful Thinking" is simply the story of an average man, and his thoughts and wishes. So remember... be careful what you wish for!
he led up to it was genius.It's fantasy but appears to be commonplace, set in a working class neighborhood in England with ordinary people who finally live extraordinary lives. I would highly recommend it, especially to North American audiences who would experience a taste of "England swings like a pendulum do--" The language and descriptions are sometimes raw but demonstrate the personalities and culture of the characters very well. Not a long book, it's a good read. Waiting for the next Philip Parry novel!
