The JookThe Jook by Gary Phillips is a pacy crime novel full of swearing, sex and extreme violence. Set around the world of American football, there are no likeable characters but the story keeps you hooked. Initially, the street-dialogue took some getting used to, but eventually I got the idea! At 250 pages, it’s a short and easy read and worth trying, though it won’t suit everyone’s taste!

Immediately prior to reading this book I had started and abandoned three books. I think I’ve been buying second-hand books somewhat indiscriminately, so in future I’ll try to go for quality rather than quantity!

Have your say! (No need for any ID!)
