1.0 out of 5 stars Sentimental drivel, peppered with boring anecdotes., 19 May 2012

This review is from: Manchester City Ruined My Life (Hardcover)
Having previously released a book entitled charmingly Manchester Utd ruined my life, one imagines that Mr Shindler found the temptation of rounding on City for a few £ to be an opportunity too good to miss. Shindler comes across as a sympathetic guy, but without putting it too harshly, an old woman. The reasons he falls out of love with City are incoherent, old-fashioned and uninteresting - they say more about him than they do about MCFC & one detects more than an element of disingenuousness in the tale - why without it you could not come up with a story to tell at all.... and then there are the anecdotes about being a single elder man later in the book and pages and pages on the challenges of online dating and contemplating sex with a new partner after 30 years marriage. Too much information and too much tedium.

So in the end all that leads you to buy this book is the provocative title, which as a City fan I fell for. Do not be conned - this is a rotten book.
