Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Review: Candy by Kevin Brooks

Nicola Morgan agrees that Kevin Brooks' fourth novel, Candy - the current ACHUKA Choice - lives up to the expectations set up by his previous three books:

Joe does have a weakness - a habit of hyper-self-conscious dithering, very cleverly portrayed. He worries on the micro-level and lets the macro drive itself, knowing he can't control it. But those small things - boy, does he worry about them! Linking arms with Candy, what should he do with his other arm: "Should I stick my elbow out? Should I hold her arm? Should I put my hand in my pocket?" As a lesson in using small details to paint character, it's perfect.
