Bit of a drag

The first few chapters are promising. Talking about the birth of the business, I related to lots of this as I had been in the clubs around Camberley and Basingstoke that Terry talks about . Unfortunately it then descends into a repetitive dialogue of “ when this happened , when that happened “ . Story’s of beating up muggers , hood rats and trouble makers . There are moments amongst this when we hear about One Nation , but really it just sounds like a script from a Brit gangster film . Very disappointed.

Left me wanting more.....

There is nothing better than the subject of a book also narrating it. I felt that Terry Stone was speaking just to me in a one to one personal conversation. Listening to him laughing out at his memories of situations that he found himself in as he read was lovely. I look forward to hearing from him again bc about his adventures in his acting career.

I have to say when I won this book from the author himself Terry Stone I instantly was excited to listen to the man himself reading his own book it makes the book that more exciting and Terry has done a great job the book is 10/10 so far I am half way through it and happy I can listen to more so I recommend this book king of clubs to anyone it's a fantastic book and audio.

Absolutely a fantastic listen.

Terry is one hell of an inspiration. He has worked hard for everything he achieved. Terry didn't need good luck, after listening you realise Terry is one smart man who knew what he wanted to achieve and how to do it. Forget these billionaires who release books that people buy and read and think they will become billionaires like the author. King of clubs is a real book about a real person that you can learn from and relate too. Highly recommend to all.

Personal take on the 90’s rave scene

Terry narrates his own honest story about the rave scene in the 90’s. This is the post illegal rave era - after the much written about 2nd summer of love (he mentions how rich he’d have been if he’d got a piece of that) full of the chancers and the nutcases I grew up with. There’s a warmth to the stories, occasionally the narration slips into laughter as he reminisces about certain events which add enormously to the fireside / corner seat in a pub feel to the whole reading. Terry’s retired from the scene and gone onto big success in the film industry and the sense of fun and naughty menace can be seen in his films. Not for everyone, but if you’ve read this it’s probably for you. If you like your boats naughty and your nights sorted, grab a copy.
