I’ve had this book for a while now and hadn’t got around to reading it so I figured this weekend I’d give it a go.
I’m really glad I did read it because it is a really good book. I went through all but one chapter in a day, only stopping to charge my kindle.
The story centres around a small family living in Redditch who notice a group of youths loitering outside their house.
I think that generally as adults we do allow youths to have a power over us, somehow they’re much scarier now we’re adults than they ever seemed when we were the same age and that’s not a comment on “the youth of today” it’s been the same for years.
The idea that a group of kids could instil such fear in a grown man should be totally unbelievable but I’ve seen it happen. We had a group of lads hanging around our house and the first time I asked them to move, literally everybody in the street stopped dead in their tracks!
I want to say so much about the storyline in the book but I won’t because I don’t want to spoil the story. I really would recommend reading this one. It certainly had me gripped!
Of course the book does have its problems. There are a fair amount of errors throughout but nothing that you can’t get past and it doesn’t affect the narration too much.
