More than a football book!, 25 Jun. 2015
This is the first novel from author Stephen O'Donnell and it did not disappoint! This book just draws you in and makes you want to keep going until the end. Whilst the book is ostensibly football themed, it is much more than that and takes you through young Kevin McGarry's personal journey of discovery and awakening from working class West of Scotland all the way to Prague. Throughout, it provides great and clever insight into football and general culture in the west of Scotland and many of the anecdotes, jokes and banter strongly resonated with me. Thoroughly entertaining and some real laugh out loud moments throughout. I look forward to reading the next offering from this author.
