Author Mark Barry delivers quality again!

I am an American reading about football known to us as soccer. But there is so much more to this story. The relationship aspect which is described from the main character to his wife, his son, his boss, and his peers are well developed and easy to visualize.

When the description of the fighting occurs and even the scant hint of it I remember the spinets on the television that shows the crowds in an uproar and think this just isn't a book - it is based off of real events that have occurred. Passion for a sport, not unheard of here in America either.

I found the use of language at times to be a bit difficult to understand because of the cliche's and insults that those across the pond use in contrast to what we over here use but it is not offsetting to the story at all.

This book, as with his others, draws you in and takes you into events you have never experienced before. Get it. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

Skilfully written in true Mark Barry style; fresh, honest, REAL writing. From the first to the last page I was captured by the narrator's account of football from the good old days. I could hear the chants, smell the violence and taste their fear. Truly memorable ending. You don't have to be male or a football fanatic to enjoy this incredible novel.

"The beer is chilled and refreshing, and though you haven't had more than ten pints in the past year, you find yourself halfway through the pint as if it was iced water on a hot day."

The first thing you notice when reading this book is the writing. I say it is brilliant for lack of a better word. You are taken into the realities of life in the most unpredictable way. You can't help jotting down phrases because they are so darn clever that you wish you wrote them yourself.

The story is filled with familiar feelings and uneasy emotions that are articulated in a way you have not read before. You can't remove your eyes from the page because you know if you do you will miss something dynamic and on point.

Mark Barry has a way of taking a moment in time and making it into a something special. There are not words to describe the talent that this writer has. I have been in awe of him ever since I read Carla. He goes down with the greats and it's just a matter of time before he is recognized for his unique ability to tell a story that makes you glued to the page and yearning for more.

I loved this book for it's distinctive writing style and entertaining storyline. I cannot wait for the second book to be released. There are not that many writers that possess this kind of innate ability.

It was an ace read! Finished the book in 2 days!!! From start to finish it keeps you gripped. Specially for the male who has got difficulties in getting grip on growing older will love this book. Going back into the past and then skipping back to present day. Shows how the fictional character was a lad on the terraces in the pub to how he felt as a non-surplus person at both work and home.

A must buy!!!!
