    1. Another fantastic addition to the Campbell Road series. As with the previous book I was wary about whether I would enjoy this as much as the other books however it was just as enjoyable as the others and unputdownable. I just finished the last 250 pages in one sitting.The book this time focuses on Campbell Road's - now Whadcoat Street - imminent demolition due to slum clearance.

    2. This book has taken me 2 weeks to read. I have no idea why as it wasn't unenjoyable. It just wasnt that enjoyable either. It did pick up towards the end of the middle but I did wonder at times if I was ever going to finish it.I enjoyed catching up with characters from a previous (far superior) book of Brellends but other than that there wasn't really a story. It just kind of plodded along.

    3. I have really struggled to get to the end of this book, it felt like hard work. It wasn't a bad book, just nothing seemed to happen either, it just plodded along and only the last couple of chapters were about the coronation, there was the odd reference to it throughout the book but that was it.
