5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and unique, 1 Nov 2013
This review is from: Harry's War (Hardcover)
An extraordinary book. Once you start reading, it is truly hard to put down - it must surely be the best diary ever to come out of WW1. Clearly, intelligently and movingly written on little pocketbooks while Drinkwater was actually in the trenches. Half is written as a private soldier, half as a decorated commissioned officer, which gives a fascinating and unique perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wry, sassy, intelligent look at heartbreak through the ages and across cultures. I fell in love with the author from the first paragraph - she intersperses frank and funny references to her own failed interludes with a roaming curiosity about how others have fared on the choppy waters of romance. The journey feels intimate and slightly tipsy. A gem.
