  • I have never read Knight s books before, and after this short story, I am planning to do so, as soon as my time permits It is wonderful how he can get me to fall in love with the main characters so easily, in such a short work I like how Knight makes Charlie different any other normal kid, and I like the bonding formed between Charlie and Joe Dare I say enchanting Really captured my attention and I want .


  • The Boy from Brighton is a short but sweet story that is full of hope I ve never read anything by Geoffrey Knight before but after this one I am definitely reading of his books.The Boy from Brighton is little Charlie s story as he falls in love and grows into a man His innocence and tickety tock heart stole my heart from the very first page.



  • The Boy From Brighton was a strange read It was a great story It just took me to the very end to figure out where it was going At times it seemed to be going nowhere and everywhere, but that didn t keep me from loving it From laughing and crying and feeling empathy for every single character in the story Geoffrey Knight created characters in forty three pages that I feel like I know better than some in novels ten times that length.Charlie and his mother are leaving again Another in a long series [...]


  • Such a compelling story.From Charlie s tick tock heart to Ant s spontaneity, both characters jump off the page Each are compulsive in their own way, and that leads them to meet under dire circumstances A day that could have ended horribly turns out to be the best ever, a day that influences the rest of their lives These boys are in different stages of their adolescence, but they are both able to see exactly what they need to see Not only is it sweet and endearing to read, it s quite beautiful Th [...]


  • This was a cleverly written short, providing a solidly voiced character in Charlie, it is easy to feel the admiration and awe he has for Ant Though the stories shared by Charlie about his life are well written and voiced, I am still at a loss as to the point there was no great aha moment in the story when he felt completely himself, or accepted in fact the whole story seems to lead to a second meeting where they are on equal footing Other than that, and an epilogue that shows a happy ever after [...]


  • So sweet This is the story of a young boy, Charlie, who meets an older boy while he is out by himself at the beach Charlie is instantly enad by the older boy and they end up spending the day together It is all very sweet and innocent and very touching I would love for these two to meet up again when Charlie is older and understands his feelings better I love the author s voice The characters and their surrounding really sprung to life despite how short the story was I will definitely read from [...]


  • I didn t like the writing format that Knight used, however, the story was short and sweet It would be nice to see what the characters were up to when they grew up Star crossed lovers and all that.






  • This story is so cute and kind of gave me nostalgic feeling about the UK during the end of the Cold War It made me smile now and then I wish it was longer
