To be honest I enjoyed the book but at times the chapters are very choppy and incomplete. E.g one particular mother is described as being a reasonable person the next moment she's experiencing many men and domestic issues- which didn't tie in with how she was portrayed only a page before. I had to re-read certain pages just to make sure we were still talking about the same characters. There was inconsistencies through several chapters that broke up the flow of the book. E.g a few key supporting characters have children that are never mentioned again.
I feel that the author tried so hard to fit in all the stereotypes and stereotypical situations when dealing with " baby fathers" and " baby mother drama" that certain points in the book were left incomplete and inconsistent. Which often made me think the book made no sense.
In general liked the book however the great memories that I had the first time of this book 17 years ago do not match the excitement of reading the book now only because it has confusing moments.
I think that what could have been such a fantastic ground breaking drama series with great British Black acting talent was watered down so much by the BBC that it was bland and lost it's bite.
I would suggest don't bother to watch the tv series first, the books are so much better!
