Well I should've known not to expect wonders from this book! It offers a rather hilarious (and at times explicit) story of what goes on behind the scenes of a sunny holiday rep scene. I can see why it's a 'cult classic' but I wouldn't bother reading it again!

Sex, drugs, rock'n'roll or in this case - electro music. Very brutal male view of Ibiza vacations. So graphic almost from the very beginning, that you become soon numb to even more atrocities as you proceed with book. Beyond sex & drugs - nothing really, except good belief of an author that every generation has virtue even if it seems to be well hidden behind vices.
I liked this book although it was quite crude (in many ways!) A very blokey book. However I read it in a few days as it was very entertaining!
