Customer Review

on 15 March 2015
The blurb attracted me to this book – a strong pull on the nostalgia for my teen years, together with a style that put me in mind of certain books of the time. And in many senses it delivered. The style is flowing, with each chapter leaving me wanting to move on to the next. So much so, that I zipped through it, grabbing any opportunity to find out where the story was going.

Looking back on it, in a sense, the direction of the story was very much secondary. While there were situations that arose, and there was a plot, this was more about the characters and the time. From that point of view, the blurb was potentially misleading as I expected the involvement with the “local criminal mastermind” to materialise much earlier and be a more significant element than it turned out to be.

That said, I can wholeheartedly recommend this book for those who want something light, irreverent and tinged with nostalgia for their youth (even their youth wasn’t in the ‘70s). I thoroughly enjoyed it.

On a technical note, I would add that it was almost entirely clear of any typos (and certainly clearer than a lot from major publishing houses) with no obvious formatting issues. Very important as the reader isn’t distracted from the story.
