Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gypsy Jane (Paperback)
this book for me left a whiff in the air of bulls**t, we are supposed to believe that this woman entered an eastend pub full with 30-40 gun wielding drug dealing gangsters, approached the boss of these gangsters, then pulled out a gun smashing the boss in the mouth and knocking his teeth out with it, then thrust the gun into his mouth and threatened to shoot him, resulting in this boss urinating in his pants, while his armed henchmen crouched behind a pool table crying!!...yeh right!! course you did love....the woman is clearly not all there, and the basis of this book seems to have come from the scribblings of a deranged mind, it is littered with stories about WHAT she would do to people, but she dos'ent actually do it, it is also littered with stories of how shes reduced 6ft, 20 stone men to tears by beating them up...again..very hard to believe, plenty of stories about smashing up objects with her swords, but apart from smashing vases on a mans head nothing violent happened, the book is based on threats of what she would do etc..but thats all it is, is threats, all threats and no action
i think ive said enough, this girl definitely watched too many episodes of jackanory

Dave - I agree wholeheartedly with what you said about "Gypsy" Jane Lee - (no more a gypsy than I am - and I was born in Silvertown). The book is a work of fiction. People have put on here in their comments that Jane was a wonderful mother! She could talk the talk, but all her words must have meant nothing to her son, she wasn't around for him! He was left to his own devices from the age of 15, because she mucked up her life with her sad little daydreams of being a gangster. She definitely lived in a fantasy world, and not a world anybody who was normal, would want to be a part of.

I would love to have seen the interview on TV ("This morning") - although I never get time to watch TV that time of the day. I would like to have seen how she came across, I knew her and her family when she was growing up. I was surprised that some people could be so gullible and believe every word of the book!
