The Full Monty is the novelization of a very popular film which was released in 1997.  This story takes place in Sheffield, an industrial town in the north of England in the early 1980s. As many towns in Britain at that time, Sheffield was not the lively industrial place of some years ago. Since factories had closed and the unemployment was growing up quite fast there.The main character of the story is Gary Schofield, a divorced and unemployed man whose main motivation is Nathan, his twelve-year-old son. The book tells us the story of Gaz and five mates who form themselves into a group of male strippers as a way to earn some money, but it is going to be hard. Gaz needs the money mainly because his ex-wife intends to take court action against him for the child support payments which he hasn´t paid since he lost his job. And now the courts have told him that if he does not pay … he cannot see Nathan.

From my point of view, this is a recommendable book, the story is really funny and you can recognize what happens to the characters in real life. It’s a story about normal people who want to carry on with their life after difficult situations. On the other hand, it’s an easy book to follow,  the language was not too difficult. On balance, I just can recommend this book to everyone who wants to enjoy and learn how people can cope with and overcome difficulties.

Definitely, it’s worth-reading!
