5.0 out of 5 stars Great little story, 4 May 2012
Hi

Just finished this book, really enjoyed it.

The story is very simple with goodies and badies (large company vs an old lady). The characters are all very strong and the ending is not totally what I was expecting.

Want to say more but can't as it would sort of spoil the story. All I can say is that its really worth a read.

Great book to read over a few cups of coffee on the sofa on a cold winter night.

This is a great read. We meet Joe at two different times in his life. Firstly when he is 14 years old and a been sent to Amsterdam to spend time with his aunt. He's not the sort of child that fits in well and his aunts boyfriends and some other people cause him to grow up quickly.

Later when we meet him again he has moved on but his home life in the past few years has not been good. Lots of things happen, but you need to read the book for yourself.

Its one of those books where you can't help but like the main character and don't really want it to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking, 2 May 2012
Hi

This is the third short story I have read by Stephen Livingston and my favourite.

The central character (who is also the reader) is given three options for the future, one of which he (or we) must pick and none of which seam that attractive.

The setting for the start and end of the story is a club with very loud music. Clubbers are thought of as being the young, and the young are not thought of as being typical voters. I could be missing the point but I guess part of the message is that young and old, we are all responsible for picking the future of the world that we live in.

Hope to read more from Stephen Livingston soon.

Alex
