5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant, touching and very funny, 9 Mar. 2013
This review is from: The Adult (Hardcover)
Relevant, of its time and very funny, this book tells the story of the late 20th century and early 21st through the eyes of Jim Thorne and his 'Just about' famous family. From Manchester to London and back again, this book has a wry, deadpan humour that underpins the tale of Jim Thorne as he considers "what does and does not constitute a life". Highly readable, funny and touching, it is filled with historical asides which you may have forgotten. This book is well worth purchasing, especially if these were your formative years and hours were spent in Grand Theft Auto-San Andreas, Sonic and music. Buy it, you won't regret it, and if you do, well, at least the cover looks nice. If its the hardback you could also use it as an improvised bat in an impromptu game of indoor cricket. In other words buy it, read it, enjoy it, its well worth it.
