‘Occupied’ by Andy Luke

‘Is It Just Fantasy?’

Score: 2/5

This felt like a strange book. It felt like it was trying to be a true account of Belfast's Occupy movement by someone who was there, but at the same time it used made-up characters and names.

Some names are clearly pointing at real people, but are the others and I just don't know it? Maybe.

The characters are often written as if the author doesn't want to offend the person, which I'd understand if it was a real-life account but is weird for made-up characters. Are some of the events true and some of them false? Is it a real account with names changed to avoid legal problems? Or is it all just a work of fiction? I have no way of telling, other than: if it's a work of fiction, it's a bit dull.
