This review is from: Borstal Boy (Arena Books) (Paperback)
I bought this book after viewing the film of the same title. This was because i enjoyed the film so much that i wanted to read Brendan's own account of the event which could have ended in his execution if he had been of that age. I was surprised at the way the film differed from the book. Almost another story altogether. But a beautiful story and finely acted by all concerned. The film also introduced me to Danny Dyer in a role that I would enjoy seeing him play more often as he had become typecast as gangsterish.
