I feel like it's a bit of a dirty secret to admit to having enjoyed reading this stuff as a teenager. What could be worse then than admitting that I've actually bought some of it. It was in the cheapo bookshop at 3 for a tenner though, and that will have to be justification enough. It's a horsey boozy blockbuster full of sex and tantrums, which sounds terrible in a lot of ways but in fact is somewhat endearing. The loveliest characters all end up settled happily at the end, and the underdogs win the important match at the end of the book and all is well with the world.
