Read in April, 2012

4am is one of the best books I've read about the classic years of house music in the 1990's. What makes it special is it's unusual setting in Germany, mixing the barracks of British squaddies and the clubs in Hamburg.
It reminds me of Irvine Welsh's early writing in that you care passionately about the protagonists from the outset, as their pour out their hearts in confessional form. Their double lives of cooking for bored soldiers, mixed with lost weekends of raving and falling in love.
Made me want to time travel back to 1991 and experience it all again.
