I loved The curious incident and plan on re-reading it soon but tried A spot of bother a while back and never really got into it. Is it worth giving it another go?
Well I preferred it to the first.
I don't think I found it hard to get into though. I don't think it's one of those 'need to perservere through the first few pages' books iykwim. So I'm guessing if you weren't keen... you just weren't keen.
Some we like, some we don't.

I have reccomended it to a whole load of friends and family and lent them it and it was about half of them who completely loved and understood it and half who were abit like, "how is this a novel?" but yeah, I absoloutly love it.

I enjoyed Dog FAR more than Bother - it's a much better novel in every way (imo). I gave Dog10/10, whereas Bother only got 7/10 from me.
I agree Kell, but Bother is still a good read if you want a chuckle.

I loved the character of Chris and really felt for both him and his father. A top read and recommended to anyone who hasn't read it (I don't think there are many BCF members left who haven't read it!)
And, as I suspected, I enjoyed it much more than A Spot of Bother.

I mainly bought it because i found out the story was written in the first-person perspective by a boy with Austism/Asbergers Syndrome. I have an interest in this as i have a family member with the latter.

Your "friend" who lost it should have immediately replaced it! How rude of them not to do so!
I bought this book about two years ago and a friend asked to borrow it before i'd had a chance to read it. I stupidly let them, and they lost it. I've been thinking about buying it again but every time i do i feel really insensed at the idea of buying it a second time.
