5.0 out of 5 stars A truly wonderful experience, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first entry in to Italo Calvino's work (next up is "If on a Winter's Night a Traveller") and I am keen to experience more. The story itself throws you back in to childhood and the thrill of tree climbing but, then takes you on a voyage that is about life and therefore takes you in to places, both comfortable and uncomfortable, of your own existence. Without getting too deep about it all, it is simply a good read, there is a tinge of sadness about the impossibility of life and perhaps, the way we over complicate our own lives (like this review!). However, it is not a "sad" book but, a celebration of the simplicity and passion of good storytelling. Enough said, I sound like a pompous git ... read it and enjoy it for all all the possibilities it brings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me want to come home, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After living away from the UK for the past 20 years, it is books like this that make me homesick ... it was extremely well written and has a glossary of terms at the back for duffers like me! Great read ... read it and then go walking!

I wish I had the eloquence to be able to give this book justice. You are just going to have to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amazing story of endeavour against odds. Interesting, and contentious, personalities brought to life against a back drop of horrific genocide. A real mixing pot of personalities come together to drive a dream ... you decide whose dream it is! Recommended to sports enthusiasts, athletes (who want to understand hardship) and people looking for a great honest journey of success and failure.
