Customer Review

4 November 2008
Firstly I would like to say that this book was so unputdownable, I deliberately took a bus ride home from a meeting that I knew would take me an hour and a half, rather than the train, just so I could carry on reading this novel!

The Beatle Man tells the story of a young Glasgow lawyer who finds himself embroiled in a strange world which initially is disjointed and confusing but over the course of the novel the many threads became entwined and the story and all becomes clear. Danny, the protagonist is rather young, dumb and full of.....himself and at times you find yourself exasperated at how stupid he is but that isn't a criticism of the author more a reflection of how young men operate.

The book reminds me at time of Bedroom Secrets of the Masterchefs by Irvine Welsh and indeed Liddell's writing is very similar to Welsh but without the `Scottishness'. It is full of hooks and twists and turns that keeps you reading until the end and despite Danny's boneheadedness, you can't help but like him and stick with him.

I can truly say this book was a joy to read - not too long, funny in parts, touching in others. I can't recommend it enough.
