This is Gary Edwards's 2nd book and after the success of his 1st book Paint it White I was expecting another fun read. Gary's tales of following Leeds home and away are legendry and this book picks up from where he left off in the last.
The first book was more about Gary himself, where as this book concentrates more on the characters,people and faces that Gary has meet whilst following Leeds everywhere since about the age of 10.
Gary's love of Leeds is like a marriage yet there will never be a divorce as his love has remained as strong as when it began and no matter what pain Leeds put him though the marriage will never be broken.
Much like the first book this read will make you smile, laugh and cry all at once but you won't be disappointed.
As I know myself following a football team has its ups and downs but what makes it special is the unique bond of people who share the same ups and downs as you and this book brings that out in all its glory.
No matter what football team you follow this book will appeal to all supporters and its worth adding to your bookshelf.

I found this second effort from Edwards rather tame after the first one and the style of writing was somehow less compelling. It was hard to put the first book down and I read it in a couple of days but I am still not completely through this one. It consists of very short pieces covering more of his memories from the 40 odd years he has followed the club but it does come out as a collection of additional memories that he has remembered since writing the first book and it just seems thrown together. As a Leeds fan it is still worth reading but even a staunch Leeds fan will have to work at it to finish this one.

As a lifelong Leeds fan myself I found Gary Edward's book a good read and very funny in parts. Not as good as his first tome but still worth a look at all the same.
