As a kid growing up in Belfast in the 70s it evoked so many memories, and told through the eyes of a bemused and innocent kid trying to make sense of the madness going on all around him, it is deftly handled, brilliantly recalled and beautifully observed.
So many laugh out moments! Just a great read from start to finish. I have already got the next two volumes on my device ready for my upcoming holiday.
I really can't recommend these books enough, they are truly brilliant.
I think it might add to the enjoyment if you are able to remember the 70's. His accounts of fashions, music and television programmes had me chuckling out loud!
I then went on to read the two other books written by Tony Macaulay and enjoyed them.
