    I found this novel hard going at first A lot of characters and scenarios came racing at me thick and fast The structure is unusual too, with small snippets, mini chapters if you will, headed by a time and location.However, once I d settled into it and gotten used to the style I started to enjoy the book Piece by piece Litten builds up the story and it seems every new page added another piece to the jigsaw.The author s observations were s

    This enjoyable debut novel is a snapshot of working class life in Hull in October 2007 well written, authentic, and frequently dramatic, however ultimately it doesn t quite realise its potential.I was expecting the different, disparate plot strands, all each interesting and compelling, to intersect , and to reach a coherent and satisfying end Most of the narratives just pause, with no real denouement, which made for a disappointing, frustrating

    Very enjoyable.A whole cat of characters that lives were connected in some way, set over a few days.Hull fair parts a nice backdrops to the events around the city.some good little plot twists..the last few chapters weren t quite as good, veering into violence too much, but nothing to graphic, or indeed enough to detract from story.

    Normal seeming people either lose it or never had it over the course of a weekend centred round the Hull Fair I loved this book and think Hull Noir should be a new genre

    Confession I am from Hull Anyone who has heard anything about Hull for those not in the UK, Hull has on then one occasion undeservedly so IMHO featured in the book Crap Towns which should give you an idea of the esteem most British people hold Hull in will probably have certain unflattering opinions about Hull If they ve even heard of it that is.But one reason people DO flock to Hull each year is the World Famous Hull Fair which for one week and a day provides fun and adventure

    I read Scream If You Want To Go Faster for two reasons, firstly I was born and grew up in Hull, and secondly, because I had read a few reviews that talked about interesting and complicated POV.I enjoyed it as I did not know where the differing threads would end up I also thought the omniscient third person narrator, that came across as almost a first person Hullensian was quite clever, in fact that was the best bit of the book for me If I have a criticism it would be all the characters

    Declaring an interest, I was once a colleague of Russ s Well, I say colleague I worked in the same company, one hundred miles away I think I only ever met him twice.Also declaring an interest, I once lived in Hull working for the same place that Russ worked for later and once went to Hull Fair, which is woven throughout the narrative of this book.Having that out of the way what a lovely book Written in broad East Yorkshire, this is written in a fascinating way the individual stories in the bo

    This novel, set over the last weekend of Hull Fair, boasts an impressive swear word per line ratio and within its pages we meet so many characters that it almost feels by the end that the reader is acquainted with every single resident of that city Fast moving, and with frequent switches between characters and viewpoints, it s like a fairground ride in itself Many stories interlink and they were so numerous I couldn t even say whether any of them was left dangling at the end It left me with a slight
