Violent Disorder by Mark Barry - Print edition book launch - a tale of football (soccer) violence in modern society

My review:

Violent Disorder 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.
