5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning realistic reading about a working class childhood., 18 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Common People (Paperback)
Superb read which really brings back childhood memories.The comparisons to early experiences is astounding right down to the scruffy kids at school to the "Zoom" lollies.The book captures pefectly the paths we take as youths to adulthood often loosing friendships along the way.Drug and alcohol use appear frequently in this novel but at the right time which gives it a realistic but honest and in no way glamorous account of growing up in a modern working class society.Its all here, the first fumble up a girls skirt, the dreams of youth and the final evaluation that things don't always turn out as you would expect, mix this up with a jaw dropping ending and you have the makings of a modern day classic.
I read this book in one day cover to cover something I have never done before.Buy this book !
