Great, but only if you were actually there...

As much as I wanted to love this book, I cringed a lot whilst reading. I was hooked until I finished it (which took less than a day) as I had been to many of the mentioned clubs, so I was keen to see how someone else remembered them.
However, I came away feeling really dissatisfied, especially after reading many other biographies from clubland around the same time. This is the clubbing diary of a Sasha stalker, who wants to let you know the inner intricacies of this stalkerdom with alarming detail, including exactly how he entered every club on Sashas guestlist. It really isnt a biography of Sasha, more like memories of certain clubs/nights (chapters are centred around venues). There are great tales in there, and its certainly very emotive and passionate about these nights, but its more about how amazing Sasha was and how brilliant he made this writer feel every single time he saw him over a 20 year period. In this persons opinion - I have seen Sasha in some of the venues described and wouldnt be quite so enthusiastic. Theres certainly nothing you can read in here that you probably wouldnt already know if you were a massive fan (including remember more tunes from nights and probably the same amount of off-deck stories)
However, if you want an easy read that takes you back to great nights out, and learning about the life of a dedicated raver during the 90s and 00s, this is an entertaining read.
In my opinions there are much better reads in Last Night a DJ Saved My Life or Superstar DJs Here We Go! The Oakenfold biography is also a fab read.
