"I love reading books that are culturally rich and have a real life quality to them, this book didn't disappoint, the characters felt so true to life I quite missed them when it finished! Anyone whose grown up with a group of mates getting up to things and living for the weekend will at once fall into this book and its great descriptions of a decade that was one to remember that's if you weren't 'enjoying' the cultural side of it too much and if you need a reminder look no further. Without giving to much away, it follows the main character Ryan who has a the sort of personality you grow to really like, he can come across as quite dry and aloof, but your typical bloke who is up to his neck, but likes to keep a Peripheral view on everything even his emotions!....The book follows Ryan and hes close mates dealing drugs in the height of the rave scene, there location of Norfolk adding the perfect backdrop for illegal parties and raves. All's not rosy in there seemingly smooth operation and as cracks begin to appear so do relationships with friends, family, girlfriend and ex girlfriends start to suffer. The parts of the books with Ryan's family are so funny and sometimes a bit to close to home! The book is like a trip in every sense of the word through the high funny times and the sticky classic situations. Its like a grown up grange hill for the Rave generation and I loved every minute!"
