is the long awaited sequel of Mr. Barry’s highly acclaimed novel on violence in
sports, Ultra Violence.
The story revolves around the Bully Brothers, and their
passionate support of the Notts Football team, which results in violent clashes
with opposing fans on game day. In this
novel, HobNob and Bull draw the reader into their world, recounting horrific
tales of brutality when football hooliganism ran rampant decades ago. However, the sad truth reveals that the
violent behavior still exists today as middle-aged men continue to pick up the
gauntlet. A powerful ending.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I recommend it to men,
and women, on both sides of the pond.
