    Some of the best books I read are the ones I stumble on accidentally I can’t even remember why I decided that I might like this book I’m not a huge fan of the 70s I have an aversion against bands in YA fiction I’d never even heard of Kevin BrooksSo why would I read this YA book about a fictional band in the 70s written by Kevin Brooks?Maybe I was feeling particularly crazy that dayI don’t know but I did and it was brilliant Serio

    5 starsFrom what is understood that a book is a good book for you? Sometimes you understand when you read the first page and you realize that you can't wait to find out what story these pages contain; other times you come to a point where you are so involved that you don't stop reading even to eat or put yourself in a comfortable position; if it makes you cry it can be considered a good book because it involved you enough to make you feel s

    Naked is one of those books by a well established author that you just know is going to be huge While not entirely for me as I'm not sure I'm into the topic it covered I enjoyed reading it and I'm sure someone far into music than me or someo

    This is the first Kevin Brooks book I've read but it will definitely not be the last This was a raw exciting novel set in the burgeoning world of punk The main character is Lili a young classically trained musician who finds herself swept into this dirty unglamorous music scene that began sweeping its way through 70's era England She finds herself becoming the bassist of a group called 'Naked' but is never really sure if she fits into th

    This book was stupid boring and pointless Maybe someone who was really into the origins of the punk music scene would enjoy it I honestly don't know I considered giving it one star but I have this odd feeling about how no one forced me to read it and I could have stopped at any time so it couldn't have been that bad right? And it didn't offend and the ending didn't ruin it or anything so

Il racconto di Lili comincia con l'estate deluella che cambiò per sempre la sua vita l'estate in cui nacue il punk e la sua band i Naked l'estate del sesso della droga degli eccessi. I d never read a Kevin Brooks book before this one but I know a lot of people rave about his writing so when I got the review reuest even though it didn t totally look like my kind of thing I decided to give it a chance Each character in this book was so uniue and different from the next and that was something I really loved The main character Lili is uite sweet and innocent at the beginning and a massive contrast to Curtis the boy who takes her under his wing In one way I kind of think that Curtis corrupted Lili a little bit showing her a completely different way of life and introducing her to drugs and drink but then on the other hand I think maybe she might have turned out the same way anyway due to the era and what was going on I liked Lili though she brought a softer side to a very hard story and gave it the feminine edge that it needed Curtis and Billy were the most interesting characters though Curtis is a complete wild child and doesn t care what anyone thinks of him He just wants to live his life his own way and not have people telling him what he should and shouldn t do Although this gets him into a heap of trouble at time I admired him for his bravery and determination As crazy as Curtis was he had a softer side to him that was rarely seen as it only came out when he and Lili were alone but it was good to see that he wasn t totally wild Billy was nearly the complete opposite to Curtis Yes he still drinks sometimes does drugs and has a good time at parties but he was a much uieter and subdued character Billy had a lot of hidden depths and it was great to hear his story being revealed at small intervals always leaving me wanting about him As Naked is about the story of a band in the late 70s there are a lot of references to drugs sex and drinking Because of these things Naked is definitely not a book for younger readers I didn t mind these things in the book at all though because they were so fitting with the setting of the book I wasn t even born in the 70s but I felt like all of these aspects helped to add to the atmosphere of the punk era and to make it possible for me to feel like I was actually there Brooks writing was so vivid and intense that I could picture every skanky bar and party extremely well The whole punk aspect of the book was something that interested me greatly as I had never read anything about it before nor did I know anything about it beforehand Another big issue which is brought up is the IRA and problems in Ireland during the time and again I didn t really know much about this so it really fascinated me and I think these things made Naked intense interesting and complex The pacing in Naked is a bit hit and miss and felt all over the place at times Just when it began to get really exciting it would slow down completely for a large amount of pages and I thought this transition could have been a lot smoother All of a sudden the action stopped and the story would change to being dreary Even so these slower parts of the book really gave me a chance to get to know the characters better and to pay attention to the smaller things that they did or said which wouldn t have been included I guess if there had been a lot action and excitement I loved Kevin Brooks writing and how he is able to bring an era I wasn t alive for to life I am really glad I started with this book and because I loved it so much I am desperate to get my hands on of his books now
