Publisher's Summary

October 1992...  

Another Friday night in the small fishing village along the New Jersey coast. With another pending snowstorm aiming at the town, everyone has to make a choice: stay in and write the night off or go out and see what trouble they can get into.  

Guess which choice most of them will make?  

Check back in with Willie, April, Tommy, George, Frankie, Gary, Billy, Jimmy, Suzanna, and Garrett five years after the events of the original Belford Stories!

Mayhem on Friday Night

Good enjoyable stories of life in a small town, centered around the people and on Friday night with the stories that could be told. They are quirky, interesting, and fun to hear about, Given audio for my voluntary review

another great book from this series

Belford stories 2

Again we return to Belford 5 years later. We visit the previous characters and what has happened since the last book. There are ups and downs and reunions. Yet again this story was hard to put down and I was gutted it finished so soon. Another well written book from Armand an I'm looking forward to Belford stories 3

Really good

A really enjoyable slice of small town life and a welcome catch-up with some familiar characters. Armand Rosamilia's original Belford Stories was read and enjoyed last December. Belford Stories 2 picks up five years on from the first installment.

1992, a cop, an ex-criminal, a jobless cousin, families feuding and misunderstandings, a bar fight, drunkenness, an olive branch, a return home, homelessness, a new job, a snowstorm coming, a life without purpose of direction, an almost girlfriend, an abusive relationship, domestic strife, a pregnancy, a college jock, a demanding parent, a fractured marriage, mistakes, regrets, the breadline, poor choices, growing up, maturity, new starts and a lot more besides.

I liked how the book unfolded. Small scenes or vignettes with a few of the characters, before the focus changes and switches to someone else. Everyone is wrapped up in their own little dramas, which advance throughout the course of the book. Some of the issues for the characters seem to take a positive turn and the future seems if not brighter, a little bit clearer. Some characters may have just taken a wrong turn from which it will be difficult to extricate themselves from.

I really like Rosamilia's work when it focuses on ordinary people, in everyday situations. You care about most of the characters and even the ones that are less sympathetic, there's still a fascination for seeing what life is going to throw at them.

Very, very entertaining with a marvellous narration from John Carter Aimone.


Roll on Belford Stories 3.
