4.0 out of 5 stars This book left me with the uncanny feeling that I was there in that amazing summer., 26 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am just a few years (born 1934) to have been witness to these three legends. I came to know Hedley Verity at
an early age from my Dad who introduced me to a generation of Yorkshire cricketing giants. This book left
me with the uncanny feeling that I was there in that amazing summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maurice makes waves, 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All aboard Sunset Sailings for a frolicking follow-up to Maurice's debut - Last Resort. Mking Arnold Routledge, facing problems with his care homes in Thailand, persuades Ludo Scully to send his clients on a lifelong world cruise. It's an ideal scenario for Maurice's lusty wit. Their visit to North Korea is one of the. funniest, and most bizarre, you could ever imagine. I haven't laughed so much since I first met up with Spike Milligan. Enjoyed the chapter headings...a list of neat headlines befitting an erstwhile and smart sub-editor. Counting down to Book Three.

This review is from: The Railway Man (Kindle Edition)
This is a tale of inhumanity to man, ending in reconciliation and forgiveness. Intensely moving and read at a sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boisterous...and brilliant, 27 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Last Resort (Paperback)
Last Resort is not just a wonderfully boisterous comic tale. Amid all the belly-laughs Maurice sounds a resounding alarm about some of society's major problems. Enjoy it, and when you pause for breath, start thinking.
