Format: Paperback
I recently purchased this book expecting it to be another very similar coronation street book , very factual but not very well written, but this it was not. When i sat down and started to read it i was surprised at what it was it is a blend of a factual book and interviews. surprisingly it may seem, it works very well. i grew up in Manchester but i moved away due to work which was a shame ,so when i saw this i thought i should see how my favourite soap was coming along. I quickly felt a resemblance between me and some of the avid watchers of the show. I raced through this book and i felt deeply emotional after i'd finished it and am now thinking of a move back to the city where the greatest soap was born. Overall i thought this was a brilliant book but those who have only watched the show for a year or two may dislike it. But if you are an avid watcher as i used to be this is a must buy for any coronatiion street lover.

Format: Paperback
This book does not seek to relive old plots, give character biographies, or provide the "story of Coronation Street". What you get is a selection of interviews with cast and crew, many past and some present, and also some fans, discussing the appeal of Coronation Street. Divided into chapters starting with how the Street was first created, and carrying on with chapters for each decade several voices, this is more a study for real fans than a coffee table book to bring back memories! It was an interesting read, and I'm glad I bought it, although perhaps not one to return to again and again.
