Written on: 19/07/2008

Not a bad writing style. Quite absorbing in the style of Andy McNab or Geoff Thompson. Make your own mind up by all means but this is not a 100% truthful account. It really annoyed me that the country and place names were all false. What has the author got to hide? I am guessing that this book is not as factual as he would like us to think it is and is more of a publicity stunt in an attempt to advertise his martial arts club. The story also seemed very far fetched. I am not aware of any… Read Full Review

A little cynical I think...did you actually read it all the way? It's a fantastic read and an incredible story that actually took place - if I was the author I would not want people to know where it happened either!

A very powerful and emotive book mixed with small amounts of humour. Andy tells it like it really was and his emotions are there for us all to read about. A book everyone should read and no one will forget!… Read Full Review

Andy Hopwood's novel, It's Only Pain, is a raw, violent and aggressive account of a young man's obsession with violence, based on the author's own experience of a life of fighting.

With an ego growing at an alarming rate and a burning desire to satisfy his violent needs, Andy is invited to… Read Full Review
