Book Club - The Universe versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence

  • The New Inn

    41-43 New Street, Salisbury SP1 2PH, Salisbury (map)

    51.067093 -1.796309

  • We've been promised the end of the main bar, by the fire. In through the main door, on the left.
  • This will be a sociable evening,where we can have a discussion about this book suggested by Sue. It has been out for a while, so new, second hand and digital copies are available from your chosen library, internet bookseller, ebay or high street bookshop.  

    'Alex Woods knows that he hasn't had the most conventional start in life.

    He knows that growing up with a clairvoyant single mother won't endear him to the local bullies.

    He also knows that even the most improbable events can happen – he's got the scars to prove it.

    What he doesn't know yet is that when he meets ill-tempered, reclusive widower Mr Peterson, he'll make an unlikely friend. Someone who tells him that you only get one shot at life. That you have to make the best possible choices.

    So when, aged seventeen, Alex is stopped at Dover customs with 113 grams of marijuana, an urn full of ashes on the passenger seat, and an entire nation in uproar, he's fairly sure he's done the right thing…'
