I was living in the Northeast of England around the same time that the story is set in. I can recognise the characters very well. The writing is superb and the characters memorable. I wonder if this book will resonate with readers that are not familiar with the place and the culture.

Set in 1960's Newcastle Upon Tyne, it was a world I was familiar with-my early life recognisable on some of the pages. Description of young working class males, their ambitions within the confines of family, drinking and marrers. Then the settling down and coming to terms with marriage and women, Geordie women and the threads of family, mothers, mother in laws and das. It is well written. It captures a story typical of that time and place. Recognisable. But it did not quite fire as a story. The main character "Tiger" at times irritated, for all the identified smarts, he often was playing catch up with events occurring in his life. Parts did fire, the introduction of "Two Step" and dealing with politics, race and slum landlords. The breaking down of "Two Step" after he took a battering was heart-breaking and because of that real. The friends and their lives, relationships and in one instance-the un-judgemental friendships you form changed when a supposed friend starts to behave outside of the acceptable norms of the community. It is a good portrayal of a flawed but dangerous individual easy to recognise as trouble amongst us. The complexity of marriage within stifling Geordie culture also scores points for accuracy. It is not as hard hitting as other novels of this period such as "Loneliness of the long distance runner" or "Room at the top" but not dissimilar. Overall, worth persevering with and in the end when I reflect on it, I can remember the story and people within it, so it must have hit the spot.
