Has anyone else read this book? I got it for Christmas and was glued to it (in between having to be sociable ;-) ) for a few days until I finished it. I'd love to know anyone else's perspectives on it?

Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm! :D Your post prompted me to put this book on my reading list :D ... but it will take me time to get to read it, so I hope other forumites will come and share their views with you. :wink:

Oh dear! I have not been precise enough: it will take me months before being able to read it, so I really really hope somebody else will come to give you some feedbacks and discuss the book with you! Otherwise, I will pick up this thread again on page 2 or 3 in a few months! :wink:
I am reading everyday though ( reading 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' at the moment) but I have to stay focused on some topics and books, hence my predicament. :cry:

Don't worry. I wasn't expecting you to be quicker than that!

Well I have had it on my bedside table since Christmas but have another one on the go at the moment and keep falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow but will revisit this thread once I have read it.

I am reading it at the moment after your recommendation. I am halfway through and it is a fabulous read, very frank and honest. I lived in London for 15 years in the nineties through to the mid noughties and saw the change, especially around the east of the city. I'll let you know what I think when I have finished and would love to know your views.

Another book I've just read and enjoyed - if that's the right word - "Another Day in the Death of America" by Gary Younge. Really fascinating.
