Amardeep Thinqir (Deep for his friends, but he doesn't have any) is 14 years old and lives in a poor family in South London. His Father is Muslim, so Deep has to be too, and his stepmum drinks. One day, on his way from school, Deep stops before the tallest building he has ever seen, because some outlandish things are happening there. As a wanna-be adventurer Deep decides to get to the bottom of it, or better to the top, because there's a girl screaming from the rooftop, and that is something Dee

I read this book in two stages, with a break of about 3 month between. In the first stage I covered 90%. I found the book a bit too surrealistic for my taste with lots of surprising metaphors (or are they analogies?), maybe a little too many. When I took up the book again it was out of a sense of duty (anyway I'm German), but to my surprise and although I didn't remember the first part too well this last part went down real smooth and the surprising ending made me reconsider my judgment. I might ...more

I was drawn into buying this book because of a very entertaining blog post by Craig Stone. Then having bought it I was a little concerned how I was going to get on with it never having read this sort of book before. However I shouldn’t have been. I found it incredibly interesting and thought provoking. There are many things I shall never think about in the same way again, not least of which is Richard Dawkins! Or as I now prefer Richard Porkins! The writing and settings are strangely weird and b ...more

Craig Stone changed the way I wrote, for many years I tried to be like everyone else. I tried to appeal to the masses and the agents and the publishers, but then I read "Life Knocks" and realised that I was wasting my time. Mr Stone has a unique style and attitude and whilst I wouldn't dream of trying to emulate his style I have followed his lead and thought f*ck it I'll do it my own way. I self-published at first and then thought f*ck that I'll start my own publishing company.

But this isn't abo

I left school at sixteen with a head full of rocks, a general dislike towards anyone telling me what to do and a belief none of it mattered: because one day I would write the greatest book in the world.
I moved to Spain, I worked for a little man with a missing finger called Juan, who owned the town.
I almost got killed by a freight train when I was lost in a field trying to find the Spanish airport

“The days and the light feel like brief moments of torture, put here to remind us of what we don’t have any more. Joy is instantaneous, that, is the wonder of joy. Misery and suffering sneak up on someone like a bastard. They drip into your brain slowly, over time. Until one morning you wake up crying and you have no idea why.” 1 likes
“There really is no time for wallowing in the miseries of life: we don’t have all the time in the world, we have all the world, and not enough time.” 1 likes
