    Awaydays PDF Ø Paperback awaydays free, Awaydays ePUBThis is by far the most literary of the hoolie oriented books I've read The author Kevin Sampson for those of you who might know remember care was the manager of the band The Farm Yup those rascally Liverpudlians who meshed footballterrace culture with social issues and infectious dance beats At any rate Sampson weaves a tale of hooligans who support Tranmere Rovers in the late 1970s The subtitle of this book at l

    Awaydays PDF Ø Paperback awaydays free, Awaydays ePUBThe main themes of this book are thuggery the sex obsessions of an 18 year old image consciousness and as with Freshers see drink and drugs bingeing The main character is a middle class A level drop out who for reasons not entirely clear falls into this lifestyle in some sort of quest for self affirmation following the death of his mother from cancer It is not explored much beyond the statement “I see now the time I knew for sure that Mum was dying is the time I started hiding in their midst looking for a new outlet a way of expressing myself Not that I really felt like saying much I wanted rude action I wanted out of school I wanted a job and money I wanted stuff that that was me sic mine – nothing to do with this plan Mum and Dad had mapped out” That’s about as deep as it gets The sex and violence are

    Awaydays PDF Ø Paperback awaydays free, Awaydays ePUBFirst I saw the movie Awaydays which I liked a lot Especially the amazing soundtrack Ultravox Joy Division Echo Bunneyman The Cure etc I kept in mind the movie was filmed by Sampson's novel So I bought the bookWhere the movie is a bit dramatic and depressing the book is graphic and detailled Especially main character CartyA lot of details about graphic fights and trips to rival football teams as Wrexham and Crewe Alexandra Drawings of the FA Cup nights of party's and brawlsBut also friendships mischiefs and the continue threats are described very well I think this boo

    Awaydays PDF Ø Paperback awaydays free, Awaydays ePUBFound this book by accident really was searching you tube for the one and only blood tub pub which is sadly no and found the film version of this and then ordered the book Took it with me on a recent stay in hospital and got one word for it fabulousThought provoking and painfully honest Was rather intense reading though so couldnt read it in one go took me a few days to finish which is unusual for me Dont know wether i would of got as much from it if i hadnt been local though because a main element of the book was the relationship between the different gangs ie the WEB which the authour described and portraied excellently Well worth a look

    Awaydays PDF Ø Paperback awaydays free, Awaydays ePUBSampson manages several things at once in this slim novel set in the suburbs of Liverpool over the course of the final six weeks of 1979 The story follows Paul a middle class late teen with a government job who lives at home with his decent father and younger sister His self identity is wrapped up in his affiliation with a crew of hooligans who support an awful third division club His struggle to ingratiate himself with the group while questioning his own motives and desires is a mirror of every teen's desire to belong to some kind of group When not describing the prelude to and execution of battles with other club supporters Paul is perpetually chasing after girls with his best mate Elvis His friendship with the perpetually crazy and sad Elvis is another running theme as is his family life as the family struggles to remain connected after the death of his mother Some of the slang and period references especially the fashion are beyond even British pop culture aficionados like

    Awaydays PDF Ø Paperback awaydays free, Awaydays ePUBI read Kevin Sampson's Freshers a good few years back when I was listening to John Peel at the weekends and trying to live the student lifestyle despite not being a student and I really enjoyed it I'm not sure why I never read anything else of his at the time but it kinda feels now like I've missed the boat Awaydays is a decent read but it really just feels like the same story only with football casuals instead of students He's a good writer and manages to convey that sense of teenage angst well but it's hard to relate to when you're almost 41 and hate Joy Division
