Review: Forever on Thursdays

Publisher: City Fiction
So this is the third one I've in the Novella Nostalgia series and I have to say I like this one, and I'm glad we are back to the depth of character that we saw in The Man Who Hated.
We get to know the characters in the main plot, and even the subplots a lot more, get to know their backgrounds, their lives, understand them and what's going on with them and I think regardless of length of book or novella that's important.
I also indeed like the fact that even though this is a novella, with Neil and Jonathan we do indeed get a few hints of subplots and that's cracking.
I do think that there is a bit more cheese than I would generally tend to like in a book in this read, but I imagine the film Brief Encounter upon which this is based has buckets of the stuff, so for that I forgive.
Also, I would like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the email elements of this book. It was a really interesting and intriguing aspect that kept me guessing, the whys and the point?
Have a read
P.S. I'm writing this from some notes I made in May - so very sorry it's a bit shit
