“A book so engaging that you forget you are in the modern world” – Latest Review of “Goodbye Crackernight” by Justin Sheedy
A BOOK SO ENGAGING YOU FORGET YOU ARE IN THE MODERN WORLD
“Goodbye Crackernight” Review by Karen Carpenter, Sydney, Australia
It doesn’t matter whether you grew up in Epping or Elanora, if you grew up in the suburbs in the 1970s, then you are in this book. If you’ve ever roamed your neighbourhood from dawn to dusk barefoot in summer with your mates, if you’ve ever egged each other on in feats of derring-do, like jumping off gutters dressed as Batman’s Robin, then you’ll love “Goodbye Crackernight”.
Reading “Goodbye Crackernight” is pleasurable nostalgia from cover to cover. You and the author are engaged in a cosy mate to mate conversation as you ride barefoot through the streets of your childhood. The introduction ‘Let’s Pedal’ sets the tone and at once you are a part of a warm family and friends. You are a part of the book and the book is a part of you.
It is rare that you will find a book so engaging that you forget you are in the modern world. “Goodbye Crackernight” did this seamlessly. I laughed through most, cried through some, even had a mini epiphany! This book is that special. Beautifully set out from beginning to end, you’ll want to read it over and over. Come on, who doesn’t miss crackernight?
