Bovver - by Mick Brown,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bovver (Paperback)
This bloke is living proof that, if left with a typewriter long enough, a chimp can write a novel. What's more this chimp wears monkey boots.
He starts out by apologising to his parents for his behaviour in the 1970s. Apparently they were the only persons he hurt. What a joke. This is allegedly a tale of bravado. But in reality it is a banal recollection of moronic behaviour sprinkled with a monotonous resumee of music that we can all well remember from the 1970s, even those who liked Abba. The tales of fisticuffs get progressively more asanine as Chris learns the thug ropes. He tops his exploits by smashing up a boat house and a laundry in Weymouth. Good job no one got hurt eh, Chris?
I must admit I did read the book from start to finish as I was curious to see whether there would be any kind of regret for the shame and brutality. No such luck. This type of book is best viewed at the bottom of your bog as you are about to flush it.
One star is too kind.
