He loves it. He is slightly obsessed with it. He keeps making me look at it... look at this... look at that... look, it does this... look, it does that... He is totally crazy about it!

It is a nice looking item. I wish it had a holder for the little pen it comes with, but it is still awesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm torn..., 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm an American living in the UK, and I'm also Jewish. I'm not even remotely religious. I'm more Culturally Jewish than religious. I'm from Manhattan, born and raised, and I've been living and working mostly in London, and a bit on the Sussex Coast and sometimes in Surrey. I've been here for the last three years.
I'm also Ivy educated.
I'm not 'Pro-America' at all, nor am I in any way a conservative. America, like all countries, has many positive elements, and many negative elements.
The experiences she talks about in her book, the negative reactions to her accent, the assumptions of stupidity, the rudeness... the comments about Jews... It happens here to me too.
It happens to me all of the time here.
I wish it didn't.
But, it does.

So, in many ways, I found myself agreeing when she described her negative experiences.

That said, I didn't like her book very much at all.

I disliked her writing style, and her political views are very different from my own, so I found many of those rants really annoying.

But, the problems she is highlighting are real.

In general, in the UK, even in London which is supposed to be so cosmopolitan... White, lapsed 'COE', middle class English people... HATE AMERICANS, and they basically think that being a Jew is something that people should be ashamed of.

Not all of them... no... but, far too many feel this way.

It is soooooo depressing.

I was not expecting it. I don't hate anyone based on their religion, or nationality - not even those who have decided to hate me.

It makes life here very, very hard. Too hard to be 'worth it' which I suspect is their goal.

Pretty Broken Punks: Lipstick, Leather Jeans, a Death of New York
Pretty Broken Punks: Lipstick, Leather Jeans, a Death of New York
by Martin Belk
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The real NYC, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great writing, about a wonderful time in NYC, full of extremely interesting people... the author catches the vibe perfectly. It comes off as honest, and clever, and sometimes sad, but often very, very funny. If you have any interest in NYC, in the clubs, in rock-n-roll, or the punk scene, the scene in the 90s, or the wacky, artsy people of this world, then you will want to read this book. It is haunting. I loved it. I cannot stop thinking about it. Again, the writing is really good. I hope the author writes more books - I will read every single one of them!
