    It was ok I neither like nor dislike this book It wasn t what I was expecting and not as fast paced as I would have liked I couldn t feel for any of the characters as the narrative came across as very monotone, and the main character Martha struck me as a complete idiot, a superficial one too.Martha leaves home over something which frankly is not even the slightest fraction of a big dea

    not a bad book centres around the 1960s and a girl growing up her father is obsessed with the cinema where he works as a projectionist the cinema is struggling to survive due to TV her mother is silent and obviously unhappy with life she thinks about the past including a lover she had while her husband was away fighting the man larry has nothing to live for so tries to resurrect the past

    Young girl leaves small town to live in a Bohemian commune in Liverpool in the early sixties Music, politics, sex, poetry, theatre, fashion this story has so much potential, and yet it is one of the dullest books I ve ever read So disappointed.

    I so wanted to enjoy this book because I have a huge respect and liking for Joan Bakewell, and a huge stock of nostalgia for the 60s To be fair I did enjoy it, but I don t think it s going to leave a lasting memory The blurb on the back says it is about the madness, the intensity and the passion that made the sixties an iconic decade And maybe that s the problem It is ABOUT all those things

    Certainly paints a picture of life in the 60s A picture of what it was like to be 16 at the time of the Beatles I was a teenager in the early 70s so I can just about relate to it all Exciting times CND, protest Marches, Pop Music, Fashion and the birth of Commercial TV it s all here, evoked extremely well by the author.

    This was quite enjoyable to rad over two sunny afternoons, its very evocative Not something I would pick up for a second read however.
