    My second reading of The Rotters' club has made me notice so many little things I had somehow missed the first time round. This is Coe at his sharpest, unveiling inconvenient sides of England - the elitism, the social Stratification, the racism, the destruction of welfare state under ...

    One thing is certain: I thoroughly enjoy reading everything written by Coe, his prose is to the point, cynical and very very British! I learned quite a lot about Britain in the 70's and I absolutely loved the longest English sentence, comprising of 13,955 words. ...

    The Rotters? Club is a novel set in an England in the early 1970s. A very different country to what it is now. In 1973 the UK was going through a bombing campaign by the IRA, strikes including a national miners? strike and power cuts (an infamous 3-day week had to be employed on co...

    In physical years, the 1970's are closer to the end of WW2 than they are to where we sit today in 2017. But as a State of mind, the 70's seem light years away, an anomaly of a Decade or a unique State of Mind that was very different to the Swinging 60's preceeding it or the 80's that c...

    It?s something of a mystery to me how I missed this book for so many years. It was published in 2001 but I didn?t get around to reading it until 2013. I had been aware of it, vaguely. Had I know what it was about, I?m sure I would have read it much sooner. Why? Well, aside ...

    I feel bad about giving this 2 stars, because I love the way Jonathan Coe writes. But unfortunately I only made it to the three quarters mark before I decided not to continue. It's not a bad story, but it's so slow. I just got too bored. If it was a quarter of the length, I'd probably ...

    This gave me almost everything I want. What do I want from a novel? I want it funny but sincere; hard-nosed but sentimental; readable but formally interesting; restrained but also balls to the wall. Ideally it'll be concerned with social events while grounding them in personal lives. ...

    It took me at least 100 pages to finally settle into The Rotter's Club. It certainly does not fit the kind of profile of book that I tend to read, but I was feeling a little uninspired and this book was recommended to me. It was hard to keep track of the layered plot lines initially...

    The Rotters? Club is a novel set in an England in the early 1970s. A very different country to what it is now. In 1973 the UK was going through a bombing campaign by the IRA, strikes including a national miners? strike and power cuts (an infamous 3-day week had to be employed on co...

    In physical years, the 1970's are closer to the end of WW2 than they are to where we sit today in 2017. But as a State of mind, the 70's seem light years away, an anomaly of a Decade or a unique State of Mind that was very different to the Swinging 60's preceeding it or the 80's that c...

    It?s something of a mystery to me how I missed this book for so many years. It was published in 2001 but I didn?t get around to reading it until 2013. I had been aware of it, vaguely. Had I know what it was about, I?m sure I would have read it much sooner. Why? Well, aside ...

    I feel bad about giving this 2 stars, because I love the way Jonathan Coe writes. But unfortunately I only made it to the three quarters mark before I decided not to continue. It's not a bad story, but it's so slow. I just got too bored. If it was a quarter of the length, I'd probably ...

    Penso che il titolo originale "The closed circle" sia maggiormente indicativo per questa opera di Coe. The closed circle o La banda dei brocchi è un circolo al quale si ha quasi paura di accedere, paura di disturbare, perché non sai se sarai accolto. "Ora, su, si disse il padre di...

    Alleen al het laatste hoofdstuk van een razend puberbrein maakt dit origineel vertelde verhaal de moeite van het lezen waard . In het grauwe Engeland van de jaren 70 en begin 80 van de vorige eeuw , tegen een achtergrond van stakingen , de IRA ,racisme en opkomende punkmuziek volgen we...

    Comico e profondo allo stesso tempo, ho adorato i personaggi e il mondo in cui sono inseriti. In particolare, gli aggettivi utilizzati e il registro linguistico generale risultano perfetti per il tipo di storia raccontata. Molto bello! ...

    great book great times so good would totally recommend ...

    Istintivamente ci voltammo tutti verso la finestra e guardammo fuori, verso la spiaggia, e adesso quando ripenso a quel pomeriggio il mio ricordo più nitido è la luce che vedemmo, quel cielo da pittori, grigioazzurro come gli occhi di Marie e dei suoi nipoti, il colore di un dolore c...

    Ho comprato questo libro sulla scia delle recensioni entusiastiche che si trovano online, ma, ahimè, già dalle prime 25 pagine volevo lanciare il libro dalla finestra. Si viene catapultati nell'Inghilterra degli anni '70 in un contesto storico-sociale che per un lettore non anglofono...

    In physical years, the 1970's are closer to the end of WW2 than they are to where we sit today in 2017. But as a State of mind, the 70's seem light years away, an anomaly of a Decade or a unique State of Mind that was very different to the Swinging 60's preceeding it or the 80's that c...

    It?s something of a mystery to me how I missed this book for so many years. It was published in 2001 but I didn?t get around to reading it until 2013. I had been aware of it, vaguely. Had I know what it was about, I?m sure I would have read it much sooner. Why? Well, aside ...

    I feel bad about giving this 2 stars, because I love the way Jonathan Coe writes. But unfortunately I only made it to the three quarters mark before I decided not to continue. It's not a bad story, but it's so slow. I just got too bored. If it was a quarter of the length, I'd probably ...

    The Rotters? Club is a novel set in an England in the early 1970s. A very different country to what it is now. In 1973 the UK was going through a bombing campaign by the IRA, strikes including a national miners? strike and power cuts (an infamous 3-day week had to be employed on co...

    One thing is certain: I thoroughly enjoy reading everything written by Coe, his prose is to the point, cynical and very very British! I learned quite a lot about Britain in the 70's and I absolutely loved the longest English sentence, comprising of 13,955 words. ...

    In physical years, the 1970's are closer to the end of WW2 than they are to where we sit today in 2017. But as a State of mind, the 70's seem light years away, an anomaly of a Decade or a unique State of Mind that was very different to the Swinging 60's preceeding it or the 80's that c...

    It?s something of a mystery to me how I missed this book for so many years. It was published in 2001 but I didn?t get around to reading it until 2013. I had been aware of it, vaguely. Had I know what it was about, I?m sure I would have read it much sooner. Why? Well, aside ...

    I feel bad about giving this 2 stars, because I love the way Jonathan Coe writes. But unfortunately I only made it to the three quarters mark before I decided not to continue. It's not a bad story, but it's so slow. I just got too bored. If it was a quarter of the length, I'd probably ...
