Real to life, gritty, cool drama set in times when everything was just that bit less sterile.
Albert has the ability to place you bang in the middle of the action where you can almost taste the atmosphere. If this is his first work, then I can't wait for the second because his style, expression, description and ability to set a scene truly developed throughout White City.
At every stage, he explains every characters' outfits - Brett Easton Ellis, American Psycho, style - especially Ryan, the lead character. Early chapters get you thinking a little of 'where' the characters were, but later chapters really nailed the scene setting, to the extent where I was thrown back into the youthful days & nights of all night raves, parties or the look in someone's eye when they've had the wrong kind of narcotic.
The story is raw and a lot of thought, research and knowledge has gone into the back stories of all the cast. Even down to the airline crew, who did - and no doubt still do - most of the leg work when it comes to international delivery.
The characters exist in every town, so it's easy to relate, and the writer has brought across the fact that even party going, drug taking lunatics have personalities and feelings too!
Look forward to the next book, G.K.Albert, as I'm sure it'll be polished and your confidence will be huge. If future works flow half as well as White City it'll be a hit. Excellent read.

This book is a great read. The story is about minor drug dealing and youthful experiences in 80's Norwich.
It has an interesting style based around fashion, dialogue and drug taking. The pace is fast moving but creates a feel for the period and lifestyles of the main characters. Recommended.

This is a thoroughly entertaining romp through nineties Norwich club culture written by someone who obviously lived through it. Very well observed and written with an authentic voice White City manges to drop numerous dance music references while never letting the truth get in the way of a good story. There's more than enough sex, drugs and death to keep the reader turning the pages - this is a fictional book, not a history of regional club culture! All in all an excellent debut from a promising new writer. File next to John Niven's 'Kill Your Friends' and Irvine Welsh's 'Trainspotting'.

Really enjoyable and very humourous, especially if you grew up in the UK in the 1990s. I read this novel while travelling around Bolivia and Peru, and it proved to be an excellent reminder of home while providing a break and a little escapism from the Andes. The dialogue is realistic and the characters are realistic and likable (I grew up in Essex, south-east England) and the story picks up pace with every chapter. The author keeps the reader guessing with several clever twists as the plots unfolds. I'd certainly read the next novel.

Downloaded this for Kindle based on a facebook recommendation, was not disappointed! Great characterisation and plot, got me right caught up in all the action felt like I was part of the era in Norwich even though I have never been there and was still in primary school when it was set. VERY funny in places and brilliantly brought to a close. Somebody needs to turn this into a film, hints of Lock Stock and Human Traffic throughout. Please Graham K Albert write another book for me to read! If you grew up chomping disco biscuits and partying all night as part of the chemical generation (old or new) you need to read this book. Download NOW.

Really struggled to find a book that kept me interested recently. Then I found this. Loved it from beginning to end. Even developed a bit of a crush on Ryan... I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone, can totally relate to the characters, and will always be tempted to have a dig around under a garden gnome in the future. The only bad thing about this book is that it ended. Although the ending made me laugh and wish that all books could be so good. Luckily I have a dreadful memory so give it a few months and I will be able to read it again!!!

Good characters, great plot and very readable. I say this as a person who does not read fiction, but I can honestly say, that I could not put this book down as Albert makes you want to know what is going to happen to the characters as they fumble their way through the chaotic 'summer of love'.

There is also a great cast of supporting characters, and I often found myself wondering what their stories were, especially Eric and his house in Stansted!!

Although the spelling mistakes and the fact the characters change name during dialogue, mark becomes John and then back to mark in one short exchange, make for mild amusement the book itself is soulless. There are some nice references to the time and fashions however this does not make up for the dreary story.
