“Slam” by Nick Hornby

slam-hornby I felt like I knew what I was getting into with Slam by Nick Hornby. Having read some of his other novels and ranking them all my favourites, Slam came around when I needed some Hornby in my life. It didn’t disappoint but also wasn’t entirely what I expected. Without speaking specifically about the plot, I will say it speeds along nicely and then offers a totally unexpected twist that plays with time and makes you think about the future from a perspective that, I would argue, isn’t common. This is what makes the entire novel. Gaining another perspective on how to view events that have yet to occur helps plan for those events or at least plan and make decisions that would lead you along the path to the future you see and wish to live.
