Take a trip back to a different place and time. Where crowds of hunched and oddly dressed youths would probably be train-spotters, where you could have a reign of terror on a Sunday afternoon just by riding your cast-iron scooter across the blue brick pavement, and where the height of excitement on the street was getting two Beech Nut chewing gum packets on the fourth turn ...more

Phillip Whiteland never fails to entertain, as is well proven in this, his first published collection of "nostalgedy" (which I, of course, read last). But the order the books are read in is not nearly important as the fact that they "should" be read by anyone desiring a good pick-me-up. Laughter is, after all, the best medicine, and Whiteland consistently delivers it in ample doses. His works are keepers and will be well worth a re-read in the future.

Exactly what it promised to be: nostalgia and humour. I liked the graphic reminder of how basic things were, back then, and the self-effacing account of how the narrator bumbled through it all. England at its "Don't let the family down" best.

Maybe it's because I'm too young to remember the era that most of the chapters are about, but I didn't find this as funny as I'd hoped. The author can get laughs out of everyday material - the chapters about hotel showers and queueing in a fish-and-chip shop are hilarious - but most of the chapters didn't really hit the spot for me.

Disappointing! Too similar to 'A 1950s Childhood!
