1.0 out of 5 stars Skinhead 28 Jan 2014

The book was written more as a political and social comment of the time rather than a story about an East End teenager.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brought back memories of that era 9 Jan 2014

I first read this book in my teens was glad I could reread on my kindle as far too pricey to buy. I couldn't remember any of it so was like reading for the first time. Yes there are print mistakes it didn't stop me enjoying it. I read it in a day. Im looking forward to reading the rest of the series now as in only read skinhead and disregard when I was a . Lot younger. Richard Allen has written this book how it was in that era . Guess those skinhead times were something that shouldn't be repeated but I loved that era ...the fashions and the music that's why I enjoyed this book

4.0 out of 5 stars Try it 21 Oct 2013

I read this book many years ago when Skinheads were in fashion. The first time I read it I thought it was great. I wanted to re-live the memory. This time round it didn't seem as good. However, if you have never read it and want an idea of how it was in the Skinhead community in the late sixties, early seventies, then read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Of its time 6 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well written by someone who knew the feeling of youth at that period. Got what was needed. Part violence, part teenage sex, part growing pains of youth.
Interesting fiction for anyone who would like to see what youth culture in part was about at that time.
