This review is from: The Crying Game (Paperback)
The crying game by June Hampton begins its story in 1944 it tells the story of Trixie - a girl who has only ever known heartache. As a teenager, she covers up the terrible truth of her father's death and she and her pregnant mother and young brother Teddy go on the run.Determined to build a life for her herself against all odds, Trixie becomes a singer in the pubs and clubs of Gosport all the while looking for her brother Teddy who was taken from her as a young boy.
I have read all of June hampsons books and have to say this is one of her best yet. June has managed to create characters the reader really cares about. Trixie has her faults and is far from perfect making the story more believable. Trixies uncle Sid is a extremely nasty character who causes her numerous heartaches throughout the story and the reader can only hope he gets his comeuppance. The crying game has many elements to it including abuse, dark secrets that are best kept hidden and heartache. The crying game is well written with some surprises along the way, I would recommend this book if you have enjoyed June hampsons books, or if you are looking to try a new author the crying game would be a good start. I dropped a star as the ending felt rushed and I would have liked to know more about Teddy
