I bought this book with no preconceptions, other than the author is local to me, and has his car fixed by my partner's son in a local garage!
Well, what a pleasant surprise. It's well written, and a real page turner.
If I had a very slight criticism, it would be that I would have liked more detail, but it's quite possible that there was more and it was edited out by an overzealous editor.
It's still a very funny book, and in some ways a real snapshot of a time that is long gone. It has moments of poignancy, as well as some real belly laughs.
Well done David, and I hope we might meet up someday - and I'm looking forward to the next book!
