This book was just so addictive and page turning! You feel as though you are in the story and it is so easy to picture everything and everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget spending £40, £50 quid... this value bracket is top drawer !, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't be fooled by the price, this is a substantial bit of kit and my 42" Samsung is now well and truly fixed to the wall (whether the wall holds up is debatable but the bracket is extremely sturdy and securely attached to the TV) Really straighforward to put together and comes with ample fittings...I had a bunch left over and for once wasn't left scratching my head as to why! Great buy. Delivered promptly. No worries.

I really like this book because it was a comical page turner that had you laughing one minute and fighting back the tears the next! I also liked this book as the story line and the way it compared each lifestyle was great! I would recommend this book to anyone who is into funny yet emotional stories of love and family!

5.0 out of 5 stars The sounds of Thatchers Britain still resonates, 25 Nov. 2010
Listening to the anger tinged nonchalance of Terry Hall's unique voice transports me back to a time of deep dissatisfaction, unrest and uncertainity. It also evokes memories of youthful rebellion and the sense of outrage at what the future held for a young working class Northen lad. The Specials, more than any of the other SKA/Two Tone bands of the time, signified far more than a mere revival in Mod fashion and music and, unlike a number of their milder mannered contemporaries, their appeal crossed the boundaries of the rigid teenage-tribal loyalties that populated Thatchers 80's . Punks, Skins, Soul Boys and New Romantics could all find something within their sound that resonated.Everybody loved the Specials.They took a firm Anti Racist and Political stance and spoke directly to, and clearly for, the marginalised and disenfranchised of all our communities. The kick from the brilliant sound that resulted from the fusion of white working class poetry and pumping ska has not diminished in the years that have passed since the Specials ripped a hole for themselves in the fabric of 80's music with their landmark eponymous 1979 breakthrough album. Its no surprise, given these days of austerity and unrest, that the band (sadly minus the estranged founder member and main songwriter Jerry Dammers) are in a period of resurgence.

The music is as raw,relevant and rebel rousing now as it was back in the early 80's and I would urge anyone, who may have maybe caught a recent sight and sound of the Specials but wants to find out more, to start right here with this classy collection. Five Stars.
