The author provides an unapologetic account of his background and describes his character without seeming to hold anything back.
His journey proceeds through the book at an even and enjoyable pace, building imagery of his surroundings and describing in depth the characters that he meets along the way.
Even though he doesn’t hide from his flaws its easy to empathise with the terrible experiences that he has had to endure and the conclusion is handled neatly.
A great read, well worth the cost.
Being a Scouser myself I could relate to some of what Billy was saying except for his experiences obviously.
What a book!
Hope he finally gets his head together and finds some peace a calm in his life, looks like it will be a long struggle to get there for him,hopefully he will make it.
These books never seem long enough.
Don't want to spoil the content of a good book.
Well worth reading.
