    A great read nostalgic, romantic and well paced The relationships between the youngsters is real and raw, yet, in parts, tender.The main draw is the ghosts but the story is carried by the children, especially the prot...

    Earlier this year I met up with Alex Davis, the publisher and editor of Boo Books, at a comic fair in Sheffield During our chat he mentioned a book that was going to be published by his press in the near future, which was about a cinema showing films for ghosts made by ghosts I must say I was intrigued by the premise and looked forward to the day I could get my hands on a copy That day came last Saturday, and believe me when I say it was worth the wait The story plays out over the last week Earlier this year I met up with Alex Davis, the publish...

    A supernatural coming of age story, shot through with the author s evident love of the cinema, this something a bit different Wonderful characterisation, and it genuinely captures the feeling of being a teenager And, like all the best movies, a bit of a tear jerker as well Recommended.

    Andrew David Barker s novel The Electric isn t really a horror story It has ghosts, to be sure, but if you re looking for creepy, chilling frights, look elsewhere but only after you ve read The Electric This is an extraordinary book, a beautiful tale of loss, of teenage alienation and filmmaking and what it means to not just create art, b...

    It s fair to say that this book is full of mystery magic from the very start The biggest mystery as how this can only be the author s second book His technique style is so polished, you d think he d been doing it for years The magic first comes in the evocative setting highly reminiscent of my own childhood growing up in that era, the halcyon days of running around in fields seeking adventure without 24 7 media warning us of the dangers out there The characters are insta It s fair to say that this book is full of mystery magic from the very start The biggest mystery as how this can only be the author s second book His technique style is so polished, you d think he d been doing it for years The magic first comes in the evocative setting highly reminiscent of my own childhood growing up in that era, the halcyon days of running around in fields seeking adventure without 24 7 media warning us of the dangers out there The characters are...

    By chance I was at a craft fair and my stall was opposite a nice chap selling books an unusual and great addition to a craft fair He spoke to a few people about The Electric, so I picked it up, got home and pretty much ate it.As a coming of age type tale, it hits some emotional punches, although it has some cliches in there, they exist because they are what teenagers go through There s awkward first love, falling out a bit as you realise you and your bes...

    Wow This is the kind of book to make me pity those folks who seem to think never having read a book is something to brag about The author perfectly captures the potential inherent in the six weeks of freedom that a mid 1980 s summer holiday provided The nostalgia for that period of my own childhood sucked me in but it was the characters of Sam and Emma that kept me reading Everything about this book is wonderfully done, pitch perfect in its d...

    A friend recommended this book to me and I m so pleased he did I loved this so much I barely wanted to put it down The characters were so alive, vibrant and rich The history, the setting, the suspense, all mesmerising Echoing the previous reviews, I feel like the characters were very special The teenage energy was captured beautifully They had me strolling through my own past summers, of wandering around for days on end with friends, and the end of summer urgency before school began again A frien...

    Amazing book which ticked all the boxes for me I loved the nostalgic memories it stirred up about being out all day as kids exploring and having all the time in the world to watch movies, I miss that We didn t find anything as exciting as The Electric though on our bike rides Very well written and fast paced, I pretty much read it in 2 sittings and really felt for not only the main characters but also others like Emma s Dad who only pops up a few times but is still stuck in my head Definitel Amazing book which ticked all ...
