Would you consider the audio edition of DeLorean (Afternoon Play) to be better than the print version?
Haven't read the print version but, I enjoyed this audiobook very much.
Would you recommend DeLorean (Afternoon Play) to your friends? Why or why not?
Absolutely. For anyone brought up in Belfast at the time of the Delorean car factory, this book is in part a nostalgic trip down memory lane, but also a reminder of what could have been. The apparent togetherness in a workforce who never previously had thought it was acceptable, never mind possible.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Hearing the Alternative Ulster, Stiff Little Fingers, musical intro blasting out of my car stereo brought a smile to my face while I was listening. Same at the end with Here Comes The Summer, by the Undertones. I enjoyed hearing about the secret messages scribed into each of the cars before they left the assembly lines. Even if I don't agree with the political symbolism, I love the idea of the subversive signature on every car, while they wind their way down highway 101 in California or somewhere exotic.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I still remember the car transporters passing my school on the Lisburn Road as they made their way to the Belfast docks and the tremendous sense of excitement. I'm not sure if John Delorean was ever, or could ever be, considered an honourably Ulsterman, but 36 years later his car still evokes great pride. God knows, we needed something good to promote Northern Ireland in the early eighties.
Brilliant play.... Belfast during the building of the DeLorean motor car.....'live the dream'.... Celebrate the Impossible!
