Customer Review

on 16 April 2001
The publicity machine for this book must have been good because I found myself buying it at the airport because somehow it had penetrated my subconscious. Unfortunately it was a disappointment to me. I think the characters try too hard to be funny and really were not that believable. There was little evocation of the era (especially the opening chapter- 1975)and try as I might I felt no real 'bond' with the characters. Having said that it is well written and a spirited attempt to present a racially integrated society. Martin Knight's Common People and Andrea Ashworth's Once in a House on Fire offer better and more entertaining insights into 1970s and 1980s working class life.
