Before I even begin reviewing this one I feel the need to say that it is my humble opinion that the blurb on the back cover is not not a particularly true representation of the book as a whole as though Robert s abuse at the hands of his father is indeed chronicled it plays only a minute part it what is a largely life affirming memoirBeautifully written and full of wry humour this is a wonderful tale of a young boy growing up in an environment poor in material things but rich in friendship and community spirit The story of a boy who has such an extraordinary relationship with his mother that at times I was almost reduced to tearsHighly recommended I really enjoyed the reading of this and even though some of the narrative was written in the vernacular I personally didn t have any difficulty in following it as to be fair there was only the odd sentence here and there as opposed to pages and pages of it and if nothing else the context generally provided some pretty accurate clues which helped greatly Beau and Bett the cruel if sporadic presence of his father it was eually blessed by Imortal the love of his mother Janet While Aircraft of World War I 1914 1918 The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide the story of 1001 Riddles their life Igniting Your Purpose together is in some ways very.

Night Song of the Last Tram Read & Download î 104 characters à PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Robert Douglas Read & Download Night Song of the Last Tram A wonderfully colourful and deeply poignant memoir of growing up in a 'single end' one room in a Glasgow tenement during and immediately after the Second World War Although young Robert Do. Night Song of the Last Tram is the first of 3 books in which Robert Douglas tells the tale of his life It is the most emotional book of the three as little Robert and his mother Janet try to survive in a one room apartment in Glasgow during the war years His alcoholic abusive father returned after the war and his presence was detrimental to the lives of Robert and his mother He would beat both Janet and Robert whenever he felt like it but in one of the best revenges I have read about in a long time Janet crawled out of the bed one night found some kind of a stick and while her husband was lying on his stomach probably sleeping off another drunk she beat him black and blue from the top of his back downwards resulting in the fact that the man did not get out of bed for 3 days He largely became absent from Robert and Janet s lives and one of the most sad and poignant parts of the book is when Janet becomes very ill and dies leaving Robert basically an orphan at age 14 This was so sad and reminded me of some of the emotion and atmosphere in the book Angela s Ashes Of course when I read the first book I did go on to read the next 2 books In these two books the innocence of childhood has gone and it is that innocence that makes this the best book of the three

Night Song of the Last Tram Read & Download î 104 characters à PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Robert Douglas Read & Download Night Song of the Last Tram Sad it is also filled with humorous and happy memories NIGHT SONG OF THE LAST TRAM is a superb evocation of childhood and of a Glasgow of trams and tenements that has long since disappeare. Well written memoir of life in urban Scotland in the 50 s Lots of period detail The love he has for his mother is very touching especially in some scenes towards the end of the book He does do some uestionable things very late in the book that make me not so interested in reading the follow up though Won t give it away but something he does is just so exasperating that I lost a bit of sympathy for him and did not want to go any further with the second book to get even disappointed I guess a lot of people in their late teens do things that seem odd in hindsight though I know I did So my criticism is probably a bit harsh
