A missed opportunity,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A 1980s Childhood: From He-Man to Shell Suits (Kindle Edition)
This book really isn't what I thought it would be or I just don't 'get' the author's sense of humour. Yes some of the memories are humorous but much of it reads more like a history text book than a book you'd read for entertainment.
I did persevere hoping that it would get better but to no avail and by the second half I started skipping much of the content. To put it somewhat bluntly the author just doesn't have an engaging style and much of the content would seem to have been added just so it's a full book and not twenty pages long. Was it really necessary to fill thirteen pages with a list of TV shows and films from the 80's?
I'll still give it three stars but that's only because it was in a Kindle Daily Deal.
