Format: Kindle Edition
A brilliant, thought-provoking book. Dealing with difficult questions around parental love, fear, death and the power of memories, it tells the story of a man trying to face up to the past as it haunts the present. Scenes where he tries to care for, and converse with, his elderly parents who both have dementia really moved me and will stay with me for a long time. Mark Cunnington has a great skill for using humour and pathos to get across the sadness and frustration in an understated but powerful way as John watches his parents disappear inside their mixed-up memories. When the story moves to the ultra-competitive world of youth professional football, John's relationship with his talented teenage son and the other hopeful boys and parents are brought to life with the same combination of soul-searching and comic elements. An insider's peek into a ruthless sport/business! I don't want to ruin the shock impact of the big twist in the tale but as the details emerged from the pages it affected me deeply; I know I never ever want to experience anything like that. The fact that parts of The Fear are based on real events made it even more poignant.

The book moved me to tears as other people have said, the frustrations of Jack dealing with his parents, the tragedies in his family and then the shocking illness of his son, turning into triumph at the end. Knowing the author and his wife and some of their real story totally helped me connect with Jack, willing him on to survive and come through the other side of all the traumas and upset, even though I knew that they had! This book is quite simply a good read, written with humour and compassion and you want to know what happens. I'd recommend it to anyone.

A great read. Well written and evocative. The Fear deals with tough subjects but still manages a humorous slant. The Dennett's experience many challenges and the thread of the interlinked stories keep the reader involved to the end. A thought provoking family drama which anyone who has had dealings with senile dementia or family tragedy can identify and empathize Highly recommended - the author invokes a wide range of emotions and it will keep you weeping and smiling to the end.

Fantastically written, and so close to home, having a mother with dementia in St Leonards, and now Bexill, and a son, and husband who played football at a professional level for Brighton & Hove Albion. I really enjoyed the author's candid thoughts, and his ability to express himself, and have since researched the outcome of his son. I know I am looking at the right young man, with the specially padded area on his shirt!

Every family has its ups and downs but none expect to experience what the Dennetts do.  The author invites you to participate in a snapshot of their family life and draws you in to the extent that you will laugh with them one minute and cry the next. You will also get caught up in the family history which gives another dimension for readers with an interest in the local area of Hastings.
