Ticket to Ride follows the exploits of a naïve under aged five-piece group from the south west of England as they make their futile search for success in 60’s Germany. Although they set out to follow in the path of the Beatles, they soon fall deep into the world that their contemporaries were fortunate enough to escape. Based predominately on the Reeperbahn, the red light district of Hamburg, the group is soon dragged down, their lives affected forever by the everyday world of prostitution, sex, drugs and violence, resulting in a total breakdown of the values that they had once believed in. Realising, too late, that they have no way out, the story charts their desperation and untimely failure. Some of the reviews so far:
“All in all, the book exudes the optimism and "damn the torpedoes" attitude of any young rock and roller from any era - definitely recommended!”
“The book itself is a breeze to read, and difficult to put down.”
"Ticket to Ride" is a monument to those who might almost have succeeded.”
“Ticket to Ride is a fun book to read.”
“Ein sehr empfehlenswertes Buch.”
The novel has already received amazing reviews and is selling well with sales in America, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and mainland Europe.
