I read the book when it came out. I too wish it was set in the late 80s/early 90s but its well acted and the characters as I'd imagine them. Hope its shown on channel 4 as I've missed too many episodes.
How does it compare to the book?
On the one had I want it to be realistic and for Finn to end up with Chloe, but on the other I want to see him and Rae together! It keeps getting better every week, can't believe there's only 6 episodes.
