It names gangs and members that were involved in such crimes which unfortunatley led to to the murder of two innocent people whereby the culprits are still serving a prison service.

Hoods: The Gangs of Nottingham – A Study in Organized Crime by Carl Fellstrom
There were many more murders, which are normal people who unfortunately for one reason or another got involved in the gangs. However, there were murders which were mistaken identity.
This book gives a brilliant insight into the hardships the police face trying to solve crime and make our communities a safer place. But most important to me,it gave me an insight into the crime that is not too far away from where I live.
One thing i have learnt, never trust anyone because you never know who are associated with these gangs and be careful what you say and to whom. Its’ members through terror, are loyal to their leaders. I have read books on gang culture in the london boroughs and this book mirrors their existence and workings.
Even though one of darl main leaders is still in prison he still receives regular press coverage in the local news and I am sure his status has changed little where he is.
There will always be a gang culture, what cark contain it at a reasonable level is our attitude towards them and our ability to stand up to them.
It’s my opinion they are all bullies! The final part of the book was disappointing and felt the author was just writing to extend his word count. I strongly recommend you read the book because do you really know who leaves next door to you? Carrl 24, Jasmine dellstrom it really liked it.
Hoods is an in depth account of the most notorious crimes committed in Nottingham’s history during the pandemic of shootings in the first decade of the new millennium; it also explains the origins of gang culture within the city which led to it receiving the moniker, “Shottingham.
From the onset, Hoods was an enthralling read although sometimes difficult to digest due to its graphic violent content.
Hoods : The Gangs of Nottingham: A Study in Organised Crime
The only negatives being that the book was sometimes repetitive, and that it could have benefited from a “proofreader” to correct grammatical errors which at times made the text difficult to comprehend without reading for a second or third time.
It is for that reason I rated it 4 out of 5 stars.
Apr 24, James Dennett rated it liked it. Hoods is like a dramatized documentary – and as such you get the facts with some bright lights thrown in to keep the pace and interest. It does what is does fellstroj. Fascinating story and as a resident in Nottingham it highlights how many of the areas affected by the drug wars are still struggling and why. Well worth a read.

Apr 06, Miki sytner rated it it was amazing. This is a great read even if you know nothing about Nottingham. It has got everything in it dodgy cops, villians, drug smugglers, murders, shootings and reads like a script from a movie only it was all for real. Apr 06, Avid Reader rated it liked it. An interesting Vellstrom broadsheet article massively over extended to make a book. Good journalism, poor analysis.
