As much a nostalgic romp through 70s, 80s and 90s England as it is a shocking and occasionally tragic comedy.
Jim and Dave are twins growing up in the North of England. Jim is incredibly lucky, Dave astonishingly unlucky. Life seems to throw all it has at them, from surprisingly sharp toys to a psychotic wife. Can they survive the life-threatening challenges to find what they really seek. The Astonishing Anniversaries of James and David is as much a nostalgic romp through 70s, 80s and 90s England as it is a shocking and occasionally tragic comedy.
“Once I started, I had a hard time stopping.”
” I enjoyed the story very much, and I kept wondering what was coming next.”
“This would turn into a pretty good movie.”
“I love how the storytelling focuses on a view of their lives through the one day – their birthday.”
And my little 5* review:
This book is very different, following the lives of twins James and David each chapter is their birthday from the seventies through the eighties and nineties and now. The characters are well formed and very different. The naughty boy James became successful and well travelled. The sensible David was extremely unlucky but took everything in his stride – some that he shouldn’t have. Heartwarming accompaniments of parents and older sister. Factually correct true to (what I remember) of the time and beautifully brought back memories to the reader. Part one? I hope there’s another, the ending was a cliffhanger.
