This book was really readable and I had no problem finishing it. It dealt with some really relevant issues, including, but not limited to: male mental health, drug and alcohol abuse, sexuality, toxic masculinity and sexual assault. All this was wrapped up in a plot that moved really quickly.
Disclaimer: I've never went on the type of holiday depicted in this book. However, I have seen TV programs like Ibiza Uncovered and Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents and the depiction of the holiday in this book was very realistic. It seemed completely horrible and literally the last place on earth I'd choose to go for a holiday, but yeah. Realistic.
The book is written in several parts, each narrated by a different character and while I often enjoy this structure I didn't feel that it worked very well here. The plot felt really disjointed and I put that down to the narration.
There were some interesting characters, but slightly flat. There was no one I really rooted for, but at the same time there was no one I really hated. I didn't really feel like I got to know them enough and again that was something to do with the narration. All three narrators told their story like a simple series of events and there was very little back-story or explanation as to why certain events might have been significant.
The book delved into some really meaty topics, but I wanted more closure from the events of the holiday. The plot moved along really well but the story arc wobbled and then fell flat once the group had returned to the UK. The awful things that happened on the holiday were barely referenced when they should have been the basis for the remainder of the story arc.
All in all this was an okay read but it didn't blow me away.
