From He-man to Pac-man, pick ‘n mix to Stickle Bricks and Rainbow to Um Bongo – if you grew up in the 1980s and look back with misty-eyed nostalgia, then this is the book for you.
Did you know that Pac-Man has the exact same plot as the film Hellraiser 2? Do you know the connection between a cassette tape and a Biro? Were ‘Love Hearts’ the 80s version of Tinder? All these questions and more are answered as we meander through the cul-de-sacs and leafy boulevards of Memory Lane, discovering things like, were ‘Funny Feet’ the ice cream version of those awful pink foam candy prawns? Did we really have to wait a week to see the photographs we’d taken on holiday? Did the little string hanging out of the back of your digital alarm clock actually pass as an aerial?
This tongue-in-cheek look at all the iconic, memorable and not-so-great things we grew up with in the 1980s will make you laugh, cry and possibly even re-evaluate your life choices. At the very least, it’ll make you fire up E-bay to go buy a vintage Mr. Frosty to see what you missed out on.
