Format: Kindle Edition
Violent Disorder is a sequel to Ultra Violence but is not written in the second person and although many of the same characters make an appearance it is predominantly about the Bully Brothers who for brevity are called HobNob and Bull. This is a work of fiction about football, but about the hooliganism element of it rather than the pitch level stuff. That said there are many more references to players and managers than in UV and if you are not a Notts County fan, or a follower of football in general, these may pass you by, but it matters not in the general reading of this work and it certainly didn’t bother me.

The story opens with the narrator, a writer, in fact Mark Barry himself, travelling with Bull to pick up his brother HobNob from a mysterious facility called Cedar Forest. The writer then follows the progress of the brothers as they aim to keep on the straight and narrow and along the way there are many tales of events and encounters with other clubs and their firms over the years.

One of my favourite parts was a conversation between HobNob and his son, Mini-Beefy as they walk through town...here’s a taster...

‘...Just down a bit, look, there’s Browne’s wine bar, where you went if you wanted to impress a bird. You couldn’t pull in there - well I couldn’t pull anywhere! - as it was full of couples drinking Barolo and listening to Curtis Steigers.
Who, dad?
Some curly haired balladeer. Girl’s music, soft and soulful. Michael Bolton-ish.
You’ve got me here, dad, Mini-Beefy said. I’ve no idea who you are talking about. Are they any good?
S***, but if you had a woman on the go, listening to ballads like one sung by Steigers, normally put them in a good mood. Worth having your ears pummelled for an hour or two.

An intriguing real insight into the life's and minds of various males who used to battle in the streets as football hooligans. Excellent and 10 out 10 from me

Violent Disorder, the follow-up to Ultra Violence is written with sheer passion. For the game and for writing itself. This author has a gift of telling a story that makes you feel you are there in the scenes living and seeing it all. Not many authors can achieve this goal. Mark Barry has a way with words, a knack at making dialog natural and a gift for creating a story that is both intriguing and entertaining.
“Violent Disorder” is a compelling read that pulls the reader in from the start.

Wow! Could this story get any darker?

"Halfway down the line, we merge into them, the ring fenced, blank faced zombie spectators, pacified and anesthetized by the dreadful anti-spectacle unveiling before them on the emerald green turf. I turn and look to see if we were followed."
