This review is from: Ricky (Kindle Edition)
The only thing I hated about this book was I knew it had to end. I just couldn't put it down and I have missed lots of my favorite tv programmes because I would rather keep reading than wait to know what happened next in the book.I got so annoyed at one time reading my Kindle when the battery warning came on and I had to go and look for the charger! This book is one of those that had me laughing and crying at the same time. Some of his one liner discriptions are brilliant.
What a life Ricky has led, I knew he had been locked up but never, ever knew the full details. The poor man seems to have had things dropped on him from a great height over and over, how he got through this, I'll never know. Full marks to him though for not backing down and giving in to the authorities when he had done nothing wrong. I found myself cheering him on!
It's obvious that Ricky has dozens of true friends who stood by him through thick and thin.They were always there for him when he needed them the most.
I loved Ricky's honesty when he tells of those "stars" who have forgotten their roots but are happy to associate themselves with Liverpool when it suits them, I just loved that bit, we all know who they are, don't we?
When you consider how he struggled for money through the years, it just shows the character of the man to hear he has donated a million pounds of his own money to Alder Hey Childrens hospital. What an amazing thing to do.
Excellent book,I'm really sorry it has come to an end. I recommend this book to all readers.
