Very disappointed with this book. The first book was a well told story of the times but this book was written to sell the book not to tell a story and Jacky came over as not a very nice girl. DISAPPOINTED !!!!!

Really has nothing going for it ... I'm glad my life has been more exciting than hers. Watching paint dry in the sixties.

I was looking forward to re-living memories of my teenage years in the sixties but sadly there were few if any in this book. There was the odd reference or two to events of that period and a few names were dropped in. I would not have known which period in recent history the book was set without these references and names. It could have been set at any period over the last fifty years. Sorry but it came across as just a girlie gossip. Very disappointing

I enjoyed Jacky's earlier book about the 1950's, but this book failed to convey the fun of the Sixties for me. London really was 'swinging' in those days. It was a great time to be young and alive - the economy was booming, there was full employment and a great sense of optimism. Plus of course exciting new music and fantastic fashions. To anyone young the world really was your oyster.

Jacky's book seemed to consist of largely unsatisfying sexual encounters with (mostly) married men, life in a succession of grotty flats and boring jobs which did not challenge her. By the end, her ennui was catching, and I was bored too.

This wasn't what I expected, but I could relate to some of it. She was a very determined, strong willed lady, and it makes very interesting reading, how times have changed, I think for the better with regard to some things.
