I'm Not Really Here
I'm Not Really Here
by Paul Lake
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual footy autobiography, 24 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I'm Not Really Here (Hardcover)
This is simply not only one of the best football autobiographies ever but also one of the best autobiographies ever. An intelligent, enlightening and well written account of a great player cruelly cut down in his prime.

So what is it that makes Paul Lake's story so special. It could be the homegrown hero elevated to City captain at a tender age. It could be footballer plunging the depths as his career is ended. The thing that makes this story truly special is how Paul has digested and dealt with the highs and lows and how he has resolved these events to become a true legend and inspiration.

An autobiography that works on every level.

I've been searching for the ultimate shoe all my adult life. Something comfy, stylish and waterproof that can be worn for any occasion. This is it. I am a happy man.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark Lancashire mystery, 11 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cracking read. A dark web of mystery and intrigue. Set in rural North West England, this is a story with a real history and the 17th Century Pendle Witch Trials are skillfully intertwined into a modern story every bit as compelling as The Killing, Borgen or any other Scandinavian thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper, 17 Jun. 2011
I was cautious about the possibly cynical anti marketing marketing but bought the album anyway. It's really good and exposes just how insipid recent "alternative" bands (xx) have been. This is proper. Creative, powerful pop with real guts and distinction. Jangly indie elements but with a full powerful sound that makes this just one of the layers in a deeper, fuller and more complex sound than the jangly bands of the 80s. A belting album.

How Not to Grow Up: A Coming of Age Memoir. Sort of.
How Not to Grow Up: A Coming of Age Memoir. Sort of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart, 13 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are a fan of Richard Herring you'll already know of his talent for a wonderful turn of phrase and shameless critical self assessment. This book is a warts n all (actually warts are probably the only thing that Richard isn't afflicted by in the book - surprising considering his lifestyle at the time) account of the author's 41st year on the planet.

This is a really enjoyable read with many hilarious moments. Maybe for some the constant introspection might be a bit much but I found the honesty and openness of the author make this more than just a comedy book. It's also a voyeuristic insight into the life of a famous person. And I'm a right nosey get so that's good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 21 May 2010
This review is from: Storage Stories (Paperback)
A genuinely brilliant book that always surprises and entertains. Every time you think you have the measure of the book it abruptly, yet gracefully, twists into a parallel reality or finds another tangent to pursue. If you like Magnus Mills or Kurt Vonnegut you'll love this. This book made me stay up too late and be tired at work. It was worth it.
