4.0 out of 5 stars Pressure Drop- Great Story- Blood Simple, 5 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Blood Pressure (Audio Cassette)
NOTE THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE AUDIO VERSION OF THE BOOK>

This is an excellent story by Alan Gibbons.
He has written a well paced book with that rare thing believable characters, a solid story with realistic settings. Everything rings true in this story and nothing is far fetched.
Aiden is a 16 year old boy who has won life's lottery and lives in an affluent part of England with middle class parents.
He has to accompany his Mum to her home in Liverpool to visit his cancer ridden grandfather.

Here he meets a local lass Jade and- falls for her.
BUT there is a big shock for Aiden as he discovers his real father who is no angel to put it mildly.
Aiden is thrust into a part of his father's criminal background with a vengeance!
The story has a beginning and importantly a great ending everything is tied up nicely after the the traumatic events.
I won't spoil the plot but this is a terrific story for older children which touches on relevant subjects like teen aged pregnancy and drug culture.

There is nothing too graphic in the story and no gratuitous sex scenes nor open drub taking but they are in the background.
The story is really well read by Alan Freeman.
He handles vocals well and the plot and story really move along over the 3 CDs.

I really enjoyed listening to the book and I hope you will do so too.
Recommended.
