By far my favourite of Ben Eltons books. Blast From The Past has an original plot as always but with a personalised twist. Anyone reading this book can put themselves completely in any of the characters positions. You can see a bit of the madness that love can cause in life and how difficult it is to leave it behind when you have to.
Here you have someone following their heart and another following their head, both causing a lot of pain for others and neither being happy. An achingly sad novel with a slither of potential happiness breaking through the loneliness at the end.
