Publisher's Summary

Alan Sillitoe was an integral part of the Angry Young Men movement of the fifties that focused on its authentic depiction of real working class people. This book is true to their ideals in its raw sharp writing of the story of a young man framed by his brutal experience in the army and as a factory worker.

Fuelled by a bleak aggressive outlook on life the book centers around a boozy, philandering weekend which is graphically captured by Sillitoe's clever prose and Linus Roache's strong reading.

    "Good story but misses out a lot"

    This book being the first proper representation of Working Class life is a brilliant story keeping you interested until the end. The protagonist being neither a hero or villain but just a normal bloke making some bad and some justified decisions.
    As I was listening to this and reading a hard copy simultaneously unfortunately I noticed this audio book misses out big chunks of the text which is a great shame!

    "saturday night sunday morning"

    I enjoyed the book in essence but it was spoilt by the lenghty jazz music between chapters, seems to go on forever. When i first started listening the music went on so long i thought i had the wrong download! Also i didnt think the narrator was very good at times running paragraphs into each other so it seemed the second paragraph was part of the first so to speak. Could be much better recording for a brilliant book.
