5.0 out of 5 stars A moving tale of heroism, 26 Aug. 2010
The Prisoner List is a moving biography of the author's father's experiences during the second world war in occupied Singapore and Burma.

The book is written in an elegant and sensitive style and you can hear the father's voice shining through the narrative.

This book is a must read as it describes a side of the war which is rarely touched upon elsewhere. I was especially touched by the relationships which developed between the characters.

It is hard to believe the horror of the conditions in the prisoner of war camps, but the author gives descriptions without emotion and does not show any bitterness in his narrative. It is a book which you continue to think about for weeks after finishing.
