"4/5 - A sharp, funny, and honest character-driven story, but the best way to tell you what How To Build A Girl is about is to share an excerpt from the last page: 'I believe in music and gin and joy and talking too much and human kindness. I have warning scars on my arms, a new blank wall to fill with faces and words... I've eaten drugs off a hanky, had sex with a medically inadvisable penis, confused the Smashing Pumpkins, blew off a threesome with a quote from Blade Runner, and tried to kiss my hero whilst being serenaded by singing gibbons. And, like all the best quests, in the end, I did it all for a girl: me.' That about sums it up."
