Strange Liverpool is Tom Slemen's fascinating book documenting the bizarre-but-true stories about his hometown that are not found in most local history books.

Made me order more of the Haunted Liverpool series

The American narrator mispronouncing several Liverpudlian terms provided some unintentional humour

Towering at six feet seven inches, Crouch is prized for his self-deprecating humour, having famously answered the question “what would you be if you weren’t a footballer?” with the one liner “a virgin”. At the same time, he has had an incredible career, from World Cups to Champions League finals. He has scored more headed goals than anyone else in Premiership history and has a better goals-to-minute on the pitch ratio for England than even Michael Owen. A humble professional with a great sense of humour, Crouch is one of the few players that is liked by fans of all clubs.

James Acaster has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times and has appeared on prime-time TV shows like Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and Russell Howard's Stand Up Central. But behind the fame and critical acclaim is a man perpetually getting into trouble. Whether it's disappointing a skydiving instructor midflight or hiding from thugs in a bush wearing a bright red dress, James is always finding new ways to embarrass himself.

As a kid growing up in New York in the late '50s, Bill Apter fell in love with professional wrestling, and it wasn't long before he was rubbing shoulders with the greats as a young reporter and photographer. He's since become the world's best-known wrestling magazine personality, and he's had professional and personal relationships with a who's who of the business, like Triple H, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Sting, and Ric Flair.

The stories aren’t very interesting and their is no order to the chapters so reads quite chaotically.

The narrator is terrible. He repeats himself, leaves long spaces in his speech and laughs at things he’s said like its the first time he’s reading the book.

All in all very disappointing.

  • The Long Prison Journey of Leslie van Houten

This work presents the first in-depth look at how this "girl next door" became one of Manson's "girls". It also tells about Karlene Faith's 30-year friendship with Leslie van Houten, whom she met while teaching in prison. To everyone who encountered Leslie - including prison staff and television journalists - she was not the demon typically portrayed by the media but rather a gentle, generous spirit who mourned her victims. But why didn't this intelligent young woman see the evil in the "messiah" who had sexually exploited her and ordered her to murder?

An interesting story ruined by the fact the author has clearly never heard of Florence Nightingale Syndrome and has a feminist/anti-man agenda throughout the book.

More respect to the REAL victims should have been paid.
