This isn't a book I would normally pick up as I was put off by the title as it sounds a bit... cheesy. But I gave it a go - and I'm glad I did! It took me around 70 pages to get into the book, but once I did, I really enjoyed it.
The book is set in the East End underworld, so it can get pretty grisly at times. I don't have the stomach for too much violence (or peril - I'm a proper wuss) but it was only sparingly graphic and I was actually cheering some of it on by the end. In fact, my favourite moment involved a gun and I was almost leaping off the sofa cheering at it!
I did find some of the rhyming slang cheesy, but the overall story grabbed my attention and kept me entertained. It's true what they say: you shouldn't judge a book by its cover (or title).
Our next read is JoJo's Moyes' The Girl You Left Behind, which is completely different to Geezer Girls. I dived straight into the book on the day of our book group meeting and have already finished it, but I'll share my thoughts next time...
