    1. I'm almost certain that I read the first two books in this trilogy. What does it say that I had NO recollection of the characters, and didn't even realize it was part of a series until I saw a review? I thought I really liked Tony Parsons' books, but it turns out that I find them very unmemorable! This one was ok, about the differences between generations. It did state quite a few profound truisms, but on the whole I didn't love the story, and didn't find the ending particularly satisfying.



    2. This is a novel of old men with steel in their spines, ice at their core, disdain for the soft purgatory of modern life in twenty-first century UK, but tenderness remaining deep down in their souls for those who can touch their hearts. It is a novel of what love has become in this new millennium – a very confusing place to be at the best of times, let alone the worst of times. It is a novel of the ‘Karate Kid’ cliché, and of failing to be alive at a time of the great moments in history wh [...]


    3. This is a book that was passed onto me by my wife who said “you really must read this”. Fair enough I thought. Why not? What she didn’t tell me was that is the third of a three part series! Mind you, if she hadn’t said that I would never have known, as it is self-contained and does not rely on having read the other two.For some reason I had been expecting a funny story. Not sure why, as none of the sleeve notes said it was, but what I found was a very engaging and touching tale of a man [...]


    4. This is a continuing plot from the two books earlier. Kinda like this book as unlike most fiction novels where sometimes, the books will leave you in awe and then, realizing its just a mere fiction. However, for this novel, it's more related to our lives and makes you realize a certain things in life, like, -do you want to get married, and divorce will be a solution when the marriage ain't working?-will you accept the other half with an extra baggage?-do you want to have your own kids?-what bout [...]


    5. I won the book from a competition. I haven't read the books earlier form this series, nor the latter ones nor am I going to. The story was good, and the narration fresh. I enjoyed how the writer wrote everything he felt, in simple words. I enjoyed the story of 3 different generations, of the army, of broken families, and of today's youth. I enjoyed the words at the end.


    6. Parsons has managed to maintain the characterisation and storyline in this series so that this book 3 is every bit as good as the first. There is a gentle underlying humour and a relationship to everyday life which makes the book really enjoyable


    7. Mid-life crisis, that's what it's about. "They say a child needs your love most when he deserves it the least."I had that quote lingering in my mind for a few good hours after I finished reading Men From The Boys (actually no was thinking about pizzas). If anything, once again Tony Parsons has done a good job in capturing the thoughts of a man in his 40's, which I personally think a lot of people will be able to relate to and not just bounded by age limit or gender. This is a story of a son who [...]


    8. Having really enjoyed Man and Boy and Man and Wife, I expected a lot from this third part to the Harry Silver trilogy. And as a page-turner, it delivered; I read it in about three sittings.Yet, at the same time, I can't help feeling slightly disappointed. The old fire seems to have gone out; maybe it was Harry's fecklessness that made him more interesting, but the calmer, 40-year-old Harry of this final episode seems a different animal. There's enough of the old Pat to keep you interested in his [...]


    9. Prvu iz triologije sam pročitala na ljeto, i onda me nekako mama nagovorila da i ovoj knjizi dam šansu I da, totalno neinformirano smo propustile 2. dio, ehRoman mi vuče na Adriana Molea zbog toga što pratimo život još jednog Engleza našeg doba, no ovom Silveru fali doza samoironije koje egoistični Mole ima na lopate. I da, reći će svijet: o ne, još jedan roman o srednjovječnoj krizi bijelog muškarca srednje klase, no mene taj dio toliko i ne smeta jer gledam onu drugu stranu - kako [...]


    10. This novel is the first Tony Parson's that I read. It's actually the third installment of the trilogy, the previous two are Man and Boy, and Man and Wife.As I hadn't yet read the other two, so my review is based solely on the one book that I'd read.The story is about Harry Silver who was a single parent who had remarried and live with three children. The plots of the story mainly involves Harry's relationship with his ex-wife concerning their matters and their son, Harry's relationship with his [...]


    11. In this book, the final of the trilogy, Harry Silver forms un unlikely frienship with 2 retired commandos who had served with his late father. Thru his association with them he wraggles with issues he had with his father. Reflective of the times we live in, households no longer consist of parents and kids, with visits to grandparents, aunts and uncles. Harry copes with his wife, wife's ex, step-daugther,his teenage son,Pat, and his daughter fom this marriage. The order is his life is thrown assu [...]


    12. Harry Silver has a wife and three children and produces a radio show. However, he and his wife both have exes, who are the parents of the older two children. So life is fairly complicated. When his ex wife returns from abroad, their teenaged son moves in with her. His wife seems to be spending more time with her ex, and his job is looking more and more at risk. Then two old soldiers turn up, who fought with his father in WW2 and he finds himself ferrying one of them to and from hospital. Can the [...]


    13. *CONTAINS SPOILERS*I liked the first two in this trilogy, but this one left me feeling rather meh. In the first two I actually liked the guy (the main character, also the narrator) but in this one I ended up feeling less and less sympathy and more and more of a desire to give him a good kicking and tell him to stop being such a wimp.One of the threads in the story is about his son learning to be a man and stand up for himself, while Harry continues to resemble a doormat for his wife to step on. [...]


    14. this is the third in a trilogy although I never felt that I had missed out on previous events. On the front cover, the Guardian is quoted as saying it's the best book he's written by far, so maybe I got the best to read first. The book chronicles the mess of modern family life which is too often following divorce, abandonment, parental distance and strong feelings of bitterness and loss that don't die even after years. It is quite depressing actually and the protagonist is sympathetic but still [...]


    15. What a brilliant conclusion to the amazing trilogy.You just can not miss with Parsons. This man is quite an artist when it comes to making extraordinary stories out of ordinary lives. In fact, he can show you how extraordinary every life actually is. His rich and turbulent life reflects widely onto his lines, making his work a whole lot more worth reading. He can read family relations and a man`s brain like no other male author before. He shows you the emotions the way they are, without addition [...]


    16. Men from the Boys by Tony Parsons is not his best. The angry young man who I first met in the pages of the NME as the punk era exploded has certainly turned into a heck of a writer. He has produced some of the most sensitively crafted books of the age. But the first two in this trilogy were better. Here he is, I guess, writing about a more complex time in life. And the book doesn't flow in the same way as the others. The central theme - involving friends of his father - didn't work for me. But i [...]


    17. I am very much a fan of Tony Parsons and the way he writes. It is no secret that I count One for My Baby as one of my absolute favourite books. Men from the Boys is the third and final installment in the Harry Silver series. Harry Silver is a single dad and the trilogy is basically dedicated to the journey he faces as he raises his son. The first two books meant a lot to me personally. The first especially helped me to consider what my own ex was going through when faced with the inevitability o [...]


    18. This book is real life, this book slaps you back into your reality that you might have never noticed before, or even before it's too late. Do not take your life for granted, or your loved ones, your friends, all the blessings! This is a warm, beautiful conclusion for the trilogy, with slightly a different style from the other two books, but the reason behind that is that the characters evolved noticeably, got lost in their lives, twists and turns, and learned and dug their way out. This book is [...]


    19. So, 10 years+ on from Man and Boy.d whilst I have read other Tony Parsons books in the meantime, this reminds me of why I enjoyed him first time around. Modern, witty, but above all else he gets inside men and how they tick, not afraid to explore the emotional side. Similar to Nick Hornby but more streetwise. It's a book that spans the whole generational spectrum, as well as dealing with the insecurities and complexities of modern family life.d this book goes down as the first one I have borrowe [...]


    20. Like many a Tony Parsons book, there is an easy likeability and light but insightful characterizations. This is the third book in the trilogy that started with Man and Boy.By now, Harry Silver is doing well with the radio show. But his ex-wife is back in town and his eldest son Pat can't resist wanting to know more about her, and eventually, leaves to live with her.At the same time, Harry meets up with two old turnips who fought with his father in the war. Across these three generations of men, [...]


    21. Malo ispod očekivanja.Nedostaje mi njegovog humora,vidi se da Harry stari i da ga pritišču svakodnevne brige vrlo slične svugdje.Pohvalila bi njegovu "kompenzaciju" oca prikazanu brigom za starog,bolesnog KenaNjegova razmišljanja o smrti i nakon nje su mi vrlo bliska,i sama se znam lecnuti kad pročitam neku njegovu izjavu.Dakle,ovo mi je nekako njegon najlošiji roman.i već za koji dan hvatam u ruke njegov slijedeci


    22. Neither a bad book nor a particularly good one: You know what you're getting with Tony Parsons, and this book is typical. It was a quick, easy, unchallenging read, which made for a relaxing bedtime book. On the downside, it was somewhat formulaic, the characters were mostly irritating, and I felt that it could have been shortened by 100 pages without losing anything. Overall, I enjoyed reading it, but whether I'd remember much about it if quizzed in the future is another matter.


    23. Last part of a trilogy (read the others some time ago). An interesting story generally well told though can't say it bowled me over. Bit clichéd here and there though thankfully the sensitive teenage boy learning to box and defeating the school bully was nicely avoided. Is that it or are there further parts to come? It might be interesting to catch up with Harry Silver when he becomes a granddad.


    24. I didn't know it's the third book of the trilogy. I bought this book without knowing it is actually a trilogy. Beautifully written. I started like everything when Ken showed up. Teaching both adult and young men a great lesson. How Parsons has wrote the leaving of Ken actually got me tear up and I felt this pain from my heart. Reading a leaving of life. Reading how people forgive when it's already late, reading about how we only know how to appreciate after we've lost.


    25. A lovely little "of the moment" story. I didn't know it was the third in a series until after I received it, but it didn't matter as it was completely self contained.Written in an easy style, it speaks to the beauty of the human spirit and relationships, rounded out with some of the negative things for balance.


    26. For me this is one of Tony's better books, and I devoured it while on a train back from a great few days in Manchester. I found I could identify with or at least understand Pat, the lead boy in the story, but what really appealed to me was the connection he and his father make with two war veterans, and the impacts they have upon one another.


    27. The poorest of the trilogy. Although Parsons still writes sharply about what makes family, the events in this book didn't feel quite as linked, and the tone was almost relentlessly grim. Plus, there was a repetitive feel about the way that Harry and Cyd were struggling to make their relationship work. The whole infidelity side of things in these books feels quite tired at this point.


    28. I have read most, if not all, of Tony Parsons novels. I have really enjoyed each one. His principal character is flawed but very real. The problems he encounters and often creates are real as well. This novel, as well as his others simply resonate with me.


    29. Tony Parsons never fail to make you ponder about the hard truths about life, love, death and the friendships you make along the way and how each person that exists in your life actually molds you to be the person you end up being . Great read!
