3.0 out of 5 stars Great story..but, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only ever read one Dickens book before when I was a kid. 30 plus years ago. Thought I'd give this free book a go and see what I've missed.

The actual story is wonderful but I can't help thinking that it could have been told in half the time. Dickens does love a bit of flowering language which isn't really to my taste. Description is one thing but not at the expense of the story. I did find at times that my mind wandered a bit.

I did enjoy reading this book. But to be honest the Robert Donut film is so much better. Read the book and enjoy it. Then watch the film and enjoy it even more.

Being a massive fan of the Jeff Wayne musical version I have always wanted to read this book. It amazes me how someone could have come up with this story so long ago. You have to marvel at the imagination of the author. It really is like reading a book from a more recent era.

It is one of those books that you always think you should read. Seen the films and always wondered what the book was like. I now know that the Rod taylor is closer to the nook and more importantly I now know what a wonderful imagination HG Wells had.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Honest, 14 Oct 2013

Very honest at times although I wouldn't say funny. If you are looking for a side splitting funny book this isnt it.

Saying that I quite enjoyed it and I do appreciate his very honest nature.

Being a big fan of cycling and the Tour de France in particular, I thought this would be a good book for me to read and to my pleasure I was right. Some interesting insight into the life of journalists on the road and to the Tour in general. Well worth a read if you like your cycling.

thoroughly enjoyed this book. Although it does help to be a cricket fan, I think anyone who enjoys a laugh should fine this amusing. Well worth a read
