1.0 out of 5 stars Miserable, 24 Jun 2006
I have been a huge fan of GMF's novels for well over twenty five years. I came to this only recently though. I don't know if I have changed, or if he has. Either way I found this a miserable racist rant, whining endlessly about contemporary culture. It is maudlin. Not for his lost youth perhaps, and a time which looks and sounds like a hoot - rather a set of social values which even in the way he describes them are rubbish. As someone else has said, strictly for daily mail readers over 50, and with the brain in a bucket of gin.
