A can of lager, a cigarette and a well-placed scratch. Thus begins David's day.
Being a hard geezer on the Buckland estate ain't easy, but David has the crown. He's got the girls, sprogs, flash car and the meanest headbutt in Portsmouth. His days are filled with crime filled sprees to ensure his obese mother has her requisite fags, booze and curry. But even a thug like David has aspirations and his foray into drug-dealing is seen as a step-up.
But through a serious of increasingly violent events, David's kingdom erodes, unravels and culminates in an explosive finale.
With shades of Clockwork Orange and Trainspotting, new author Charlie Wiltshire gives an unflinching, and often times disturbing, account of life on one of England's most difficult estates. From the details of ‘pulling gear' to the politics of cancer in underclass patients, Buckland Gap asks if society can ever be saved. Even from itself.

Wow, OMG, that was intense dude. What a book

A hard hitting and at times very violent book. At first I found the theme a little disturbing but after a while I realised this was a relevant story and the aggression is required to fulfil the story arc. In the end the protagonist’s downfall is welcome and I think the author has a message here, that is we all get what we deserve in the end. Worth a read.

At first, I found this story to be hard going. There is a lot of bad language and violence throughout. However, as the story drove forward I began to realise that this was necessary for the overall theme within the story. From about halfway I actually started to enjoy the book and by the time I had reached the last chapter I was hooked. The ending is perfect, well worth a read. I give this book 4/5.
