I got round to 2000 Tunes after it had languished in my "to read" pile for a while.
I read the back cover write up and began to read without any real expectations. Now I've finished it and I've got to say I loved it.
Karl Drinkwater has done a great job of capturing a time and place incredibly well. The characters are well written and relatable.
Based in Manchester at the dawn of the new millennium the story centres around Mark Hopton. Mark is an outsider. He has a run of the mill job, a small flat and a few good mates. Mark's one of life's good guys, unfortunately his family are a nightmare. His Dad's in jail (again) and his headcase of a Brother won't let him live his life. They are trying drag Mark down with them.
Mark's escape lays in the bands and music of the city he lives in. It's a solace, a passion, an obsession. The Summer of 2000 brings another light into his life. Sam, a beautiful Welsh girl in the office at work. She could be Mark's saviour but he thinks she's out of his league. He is so used to things going wrong that he daren't dream that maybe this time things could go his way.
I'm a bit of a music fan myself. The books I read are often music biographies. Even though music is the backbone of 2000 Tunes I don't know if I would have picked it up. Now I am glad that I did. I will be seeking out Karl Drinkwater's other books and would urge anyone reading this to do likewise.
