Format: Paperback
Having thoroughly enjoyed every page of the first two books I was overjoyed to source an advance copy of the eagerly awaited Bravo Jubilee! Again the unique Charlie Owen gritty storyline kicks in and the first chapter commands your attention from the off punctuated with more original hilarious similes and scenarios.The characters we know whose personalities are embellished to a point when the reader feels they may have actually met them (or some one like them) in their own experiences.There are dark moments which highlight the author's skill to move from feeling slightly disturbed to fit of uncontrollable laughter.If a Britflick film maker made this properly it would blow all that's gone before out of the water!If you're over 18 and have got a sense of humour one cannot fail to enjoy it! Put it on your Christmas list and if you have not read the first two get them as well you wont be disappointed.

I have just finished the book. Like the two books before, this book is brilliantly written. Once you start on page one, you will simply be engrosed in the book. Charlie Owen is a brilliant writer and I hope that he carries on with this superb series of books. The characters are fabulous and certain sections of the book leave you laughing out very loudly. Brilliant and lets hope he continues to write more.

Format: Paperback
This is certainly no high-brow literature, but for sheer entertainment, utter hilarity and Owen's clear talent for putting a cracking story together, I'll happily give Bravo Jubilee five stars, as this one is the best in the series yet.
All the favourite characters are back, some slightly more deranged than others, but if you've come this far, it feels like a welcome reunion with old friends.

One word of warning though: do NOT read this book in a public space. By the time I reached a particularly unfortunate Leeds hooligan's encounter with Alfie the Crocodile-Jawed Beast, I was snorting and crying with laughter so much that all the other people on the bus were staring at me. Not good.

Do keep writing Charlie, I love your stuff!

Format: Paperback
Where do you start? Charlie Owen has done it again. All our favourite characters from Horses Arse and Foxtrot Oscar are back and we're learning more about them as they punch, kick, smash and fabricate their way through the scum of the fictional town of Hanstead, Greater Manchester. Forget any other fictional Police story. This is written by a real copper and seems lifted from the experiences from a real Police career. The authenticity is second to none. The humour dark and crude(as it needs to be to do "the job" everyday) and the action, detailed and gritty. If the Police nowadays were allowed to be half as tough as the officers from Hanstead in the 70s, we'd be living in a far nicer country!!!

Can't wait for films!!!!

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first two books from Charlie Owen, I was not disappointed with this one. Charlie Owen continues to develop the characters introduced in Horses Arse and introduces new stars to the mix.

The book contains some graphic descriptions of violence and references to the sexual peccadilloes of a number of the characters, so don't let the kids get a hold of it!

I won't spoil your reading by going into too much detail, nor will I give you any spoilers. All I'll say is that I've ordered the fourth book in the series already and it hasn't even been printed yet.

By Roger Young on 21 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third in Charlie Owen's series of (so far) 3 books relating the tales of a dysfunctional but mythical town north of Manchester and the dysfunctional but mythical policing services that the scrotes who live there deserve and receive.

I read all three one after the other. Now I have finished I really miss them - I felt I was lucky (?) enough to be an observer on a chaotic, hilariously funny, sad, violent world. Good characterisation (don't you just love Psycho??) each one of them believable and very human.

I suppose having been a copper for 32 years (including right through the 70's when these books are set) I can see people with whom I served and situations that crossed my path. But don't for one moment think that you need to have been a copper to appreciate this masterpiece - it is for those of us who have observed life, seen the horrors, laughed at its stupidity, sighed as the ineptness of some minor civil servant, cried at its cruelty.

OK, some story lines may initially seem strong but fizzle out to nothing, some of the themes (coppers scrounging burgers etc.) may be overplayed and some of the language over-used (sometimes 'less is more') but do NOT be put off. You'll scream with laughter (the woman Inspector who faints in her private loo at what she finds down there !!), cry at the sadness (the first few pages of this book are very harrowing), and shake your head at the pathetic ineptitude of some of the people you meet.

A mighty good read. Great fun. I can't wait for number 4.

Format: Paperback
As a retired police officer, who survived 'The Job' during the seventies. I could relate to the situations and story lines of this & other books by the author Charlie Owen. This book is a must for all old time coppers (and the current generation, who can read how it used to be done!) Highly recommended.
