2000 Tunes is a subtly-crafted work for readers who enjoy characters with depth. Mark's not had an easy life, but he works hard, keeps his head down and colours his life with Mancunian music. Samantha is beautiful, smart and going through an existential crisis. They work together at book distributors but haven't really interacted with each other. Slowly, they are drawn to each other, but to label it a 'romance' would be a gross over-simplification. 2000 Tunes is so much more. It is a meandering, gentle tale about self-awakening, confidence, family and place. The characters are fantastically layered and nuanced - a joy to read about - but it's not until the end that the reader can truly say they understand their motivations. This makes for an intriguing and satisfying conclusion. The most accessible literary work I've read in a long time and book that deserves a wider audience. Read it.

An excellent book by Karl Drinkwater which captures the Manchester music scene at the start of the century so brilliantly. I adored all the music references. However there is much more to this book that music cultural references. The characters are so well developed and the story is engaging. A joy to read and I look forward to exploring more of this authors books.

2000 Tunes is a book I received in a Goodreads giveaway last year.
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.
