Just a really good read,
This review is from: The "Rotters' Club" (Paperback)
This book is excellent, and I would really recommend it. Like all Coe's books it has that nice, slightly bittersweet feel to it. In this case, the story does a great job of blending it's considerable dose of nostalgia with immediately recognisable characters. For those able to remember the times covered by the story it should be a wryly humourous reminder of life way back when. On the other hand, for anyone younger the story should still have more than enough resonance, dealing with all the emotional trials and tribulations you'd expect from a coming of age tale. Short of re-telling the story, what more can I say? This is just a really well-written, moving and enjoyable read. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
