Yes, the 50's and 60's where just that, a crazy, beautiful, unmissable, time. Luke Mitchell and I have about 10 years difference in age, I was transported back to my/our youth reading this book. The very flavour, the feeling and sensation of living those years are all there in these pages. I can't know, of course, how autobiographical, or true to his history this book is, but I do know that it synchs with my experiences very precisely. I didn't ever sit on a landmine, nor did I have any of the more extreme experiences related, but it all rings true. A wonderfully well written, unputdownable epic book. Thank you Mr. Luke Mitchell. WHEN'S THE NEXT ONE COMING OUT??????
