Last week I watched a BBC documentary that opened a magic door onto a bizarre world that I never even knew existed, the world of professional e-gamers competing at top level in League of Legends. When I described this testosterone charged world to a friend, his immediate response was "Those guys must have really shitty sex lives." No, actually, that is the seriously weird thing about it. They have no sex life whatever. Young men, and they are nearly all men, and of necessity young because the sp [...]

A touching and rather poignant novel about rites of paasage in the asian community in mid 80s London (identifiable from the video shop with VHS and Betamax!). It is semi-autobiographical and the firat part of the book is set in the rural Guyana of Dabydeen's childhood. The chilhood descriptions are vivd and startling and often humourous. Throughout there are sad and hilarious descriptions of rites of passage issues; discomfort with bodies, what the hell do you do with the opposite sex (and why), [...]

*spoilers included*I really enjoyed the beginning of this book- I felt like I could really empathise with the narrator as his feelings and reasons about being an outsider were extremely similar to things that I've experienced in my life. However, once the switching back and forth of the time line began, I just started to really dislike the writing style as new characters were introduced and I couldn't figure out whether they were from the narrators past or present and there was never any clear i [...]

it's not quite accurate to call a book that includes a suicide torching, frank sexual language, alcoholism, domestic violence, and racial violence lovely. but it is. dabydeen's novel moves brilliantly through time and place, giving life to the troubles of the remains of empire from the eyes of a young man. the tension between self-worth and "high" culture is especially well handled. every page calls into question the concept of value - a continuous struggle. dabydeen's notions of "the pornograph [...]

I'm growing more fond of this book the more I go back to it for class and analyze what Dabydeen was doing with language as he wrote this. It's kind of remarkable and amazing how he makes illiterate characters so fascinated with traditional English and have insight that native speakers really can't get to. He turns our traditional English on its head and messes with it in ways that create meaning in ways I would never have thought of. I originally disliked this book when I started it, and I'm ama [...]

A book about a West Indian boy who strives for a career in literature. His friends, however, develop differently, all trying to find themselves in between money, sex and poverty. Flashbacks of his childhood in Guayana provide a full picture of his upbringing so the reader can follow his journey. The book portrays several experiences of immigrant teenagers in the urban jungle that is London.

Meh. I felt like the plot was veryjumpy? Yes. And I guess I couldn't really plot things that well because I had too many questions about Joseph.
