1.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea 28 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't even finished this book as for me it is not page turner, there I nothing that makes me want to know what happens next, it doesn't particularly take me back to the 60s as I had hoped it would, and so far I have found it to be rather dull. It may suit some but for me, it just doesn't make the grade.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 23 Jun 2013

Vanity publishing at its worst. implausible plot, badly written but cheap. I suppose the title gave it away, a fairy story.

Wow what an adventure. I found the name dropping at the beginning of the book amusing. Then the story of what amount to an epic journey enthralling. Well written. An enjoyable read

5.0 out of 5 stars Pacey read! 3 Dec 2013

Format:Paperback
Loved this book. Anyone who went through the Sixties in either UK or Australia would relate to it. It is pithy and amusing. I have loaned this book to several friends and they all loved it!

Enjoyed the book and the way it was written but the ending was too quick, like the writer needed to get it finished.

I loved this book mainly because of evoked warm memories of my own youth in the so called "swinging sixties".
