Boring Boring Boring....,
This review is from: From the Lane (Paperback)
I brought this book based on the reviews on this site. I have to admit its dreadful! It's incredibly patronising. The author treats the reader like they are unaware of certain events of the past 20 years (1990 World Cup being one prime example) skims over certain events and tells stories about moments in his life that are so dull (such as drinking cider prior to games, getting lifts from his Dad on the North Circular).
The match reports too are very boring - where is the wit and the charm?
There is no real development throughout - each chapter is like the last. I'm half-way through and cannot be bothered to complete.
I can't understand why people have given this 5 stars - maybe they are pals of Oliver!
