Default Gypsy Boy

I finished reading Gypsy Boy by Mikey Walsh last night and so thought I would write a review whilst it is still fresh.

This book is autobiographical and well written. Its not a big book, but the fact that I read it in a couple of days was not due to its thinness but due to the fact that I couldn't put it down!! The fact that Mikey wrote this book is incredible. In fact I don't want to say much as I might spoil it!! But Mikey had a hard upbringing, violence is an accepted part of that upbringing. I am not ashamed to say that I had a tear in my eye at a certain part towards the end of the book.

All in all! I recommend!

Thanks for the review Vickie - I'm ashamed to say I'm going to have to go and Google Mikey Walsh

Certainly sounds like a good read though - you can't beat a book that grips you from beginning to end!

I can't even remember how I decided I wanted to read it, must have been a review or something?? Anyway I put it on my Amazon wishlist (great for using to remember things I have seen and want! ) and so a friend bought it for me for Christmas. Don't be ashamed that you had heard of him, he is only known for this book.
