Great dispite title :), 19 Dec 2006
I don't think this book was cleverly written as some claim, but it was personally written, you could really feel the characters coming to life and I love the way that the feelings are represented.
True, there are sections of information purely related to tractors which makes about as interesting reading as a textbook. This however only highlights the eccentric behavior and fascination with engineering that the old man has.
The style which is used to write this book allows the reader to familiarize themselves with the characters involved and this makes it a joy to read.
I hope you enjoy it!
