I decided to read this having discovered that it was listed as being one of David Bowie’s top 100 favourite books. It felt like a safe bet as I’d previously read the authors other incredible books England’s Dreaming and the England’s Dreaming Tapes with the former being one of my all time personal favourites. I was so very wrong! This book is a total chore to read and it’s taking me weeks to get through it because I just cannot muster up enough enthusiasm to pick it up. I want to like it but it’s just so incredibly boring. Looking at the reviews on the cover I’m almost certain that I have the wrong book because hugely enjoyable, vivid, brilliant, compelling and persuasive it is most certainly not.
