    "OMFG!!!"
    Would you try another book written by Alex Wheatle or narrated by Joel Trill?

    Yes I tried the sequel and that was much better. But I would not try anything by the narrator!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story itself was ok but what ruined it for me was the narrator, who does not seem to have even heard West Indian people in south London speak before! He could not pronounce even the simplest words or phrases, be them Jamaican patois or London slang. It really was very painful and torturous to listen to, especially as a person who grew up around that area around that time. I really don't know how he got paid for that job or how the publishers let such an awful performance be published in their name!


    What didn’t you like about Joel Trill’s performance?

    It was dire! He sounded like a middle class out-of-London actor who really does not have a clue how to act!!!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The story sparked nuff nostalgia. However, the narration made me extremely angry due to its very poor performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I should've been paid to listen to this book!!!!
