Wanted to like this book more. It did educate about the region and the, under reported, war going on there. It showed the people to be dignifed and resilient and personalized certain events to some extent.

Not my favourite classic. Too long, strayed from the point. A bit unfocused. Read it all but found it a bit of astruggle at times.

Some deep themes although the book remained light hearted and enjoyable reading throughout. Very old fashioned English characters and style.

Seemed to go on for too long and loose direction. Plot convoluted and just too many quirky characters. Though had its moments.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I thought it would be., 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lot of American style naval gazing. Essentially all the characters loved and supported each other, in there own way, also in the American style. The twist at the end was unnecessary and not too belivable.

This review is from: Son of a Gun (Kindle Edition)
Was toying between 3 and 4 stars. Interesting book, events seen almost entirely from the authors perspective. His mother seemed to be a strong and admirable character, her one weakness being her choice of men.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Story, 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a short story, not a book so was a good, very quick read. Don't think the author could have sustained the momentum to a full book. It's supposed to be true, if so, horrific.
