A really enjoyable, humourous & interesting read,
This review is from: Suggs and the City: Journeys through Disappearing London (Paperback)
Great book by Suggs. Written with his lovely chatty & funny manner, it's partly a personal journey for him, but also full of unusual weird & wonderful facts. I personally found it interesting too as I went to all the same haunts as Suggs albeit 10 years later & know most of the places mentioned very well. So it reminded me of all the fun I had in these venues in my youth too. I love Suggs too. I'm not particuarly a huge fan of Suggs through his music although I do like Madness, however whenever I've seen him presenting TV or on radio, he's so completely natural, down to earth & very funny & likeable without trying too hard and this definately comes over in the book. I read it all in a day & evening. Highly recommend this book to all those interested in a lighthearted trip down memory lane in London. However if you are looking for a serious history textbook on London this is not your book, but that should be obvious from the start!
