Andrew Taylor is always guaranteed to give a good read and 'The Second Midnight' is no exception. He manages to combine a very serious story with a lot of humour as he traces the progress of a young English boy left abandoned in Czechoslovakia at the start of WW2. The lad,, whose name is Hugh, shows amazing initiative and courage which,, coupled with a lot of sheer good luck, enables him to survive despite all odds. He learns to speak Czech and German with remarkable speed, and is able to pass himself off as a Czech boy. There is also a touching love story as Hugh begins to grow up and falls in love with the daughter of the German officer who takes him into work as a gardener's boy. I would thoroughly recommend this book..

Interesting premise of somebody abandoned in the midst of war. Some of the actors in the drama are unloveable but that makes it more believable. The range of events also gives the story depth. Altogether an enjoyable read.

This is book that is hard to put down once you start reading. There are so many twists and turns you are always wanting to know what is going to happen next. I found myself holding my breath as each chapter ended.

I read this is a day and a half...fast moving, well told and moving. I learnt a lot about pre and post war eastern Europe because the book is very well researched. A great story.
