Great book - good holiday reading - memories of childhood a real feel good factor. Beautifully written showing the struggle with good and bad on all levels from Hindley and Brady to Michael struggling with exposure to bullying - very funny in places and incredibly moving as well. Excellent read for all - older people for nostalgia younger readers to experience the ups and downs of childhood in the 60's. Recommended!!
I am 55 years of age and live and work in the city of Salisbury.
I spent a large part of my childhood in Manchester where the book is set, worked in London for twenty years and travelled extensively abroad. My career path is unconventional, more a wide variety of work placements rather than an actual career,but at present I am working as a "Parenting Practitioner" in Wiltshire giving advice to parents whose children show challenging behaviours. I am married with three teenage children.
