I bought this book after thoroughly enjoying Julie Taylor's two books, 1970's The Retro years ( both excellent by the way). Having read those two books it came up as one of my recommendations so as I was well down my memory lane stroll I decided to give it a go, I have to say it is not what I expected.
Rather than being something that would evoke memories of this era it is just a collection of short stories that coincidentally seem to be set in this decade, there is very little in the way of memory jogging, descriptions of clothing, meals, games, music etc, just the odd phrase here and there.
I have not yet finished the book, I have read the first two stories and started the third. The first two, written by men, obviously have a very strong male emphasis and the first one is by far the most amusing. The second one, apart from references to members of the Welsh Rugby team at the time the story was set could have taken place in any decade. The author described a teenage party but there was no reference to the music playing or the fashions being worn and to me this was a whole missed opportunity to create a 70's vibe.
Perhaps I am just saturated with 70's memories at the moment and this book isn't adding to them. Taken out of context the stories are okay and mildly amusing but I think I will be putting it down for a while and picking it up at a
later date.

I can't tell you this was a riveting read, but there were a few things I recognised, like some of the appalling tastes in fashion, and certain types of music. One of my favourite periods in music was the Seventies' decade. Sadly, I can't describe this as 'funny'!

As a child of the 70s it brought back many happy memories. It is easy to read and I finished it in an evening. Enjoyable for those of us of a certain age.
