4.0 out of 5 stars Something to Answer for, 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It starts fine and finishes fine, but meanders around in circles in the middle.

Which reflects Townrow's, the hero, state as he gets smacked on the head and nearly killed after which he has trouble figuring out what he is doing, why he is doing it, where he is from and who he actually is. He has memories which he thinks may be from the future, or perhaps other peoples'.

He's confused.

The writing is never confused, though. It is really well written, a pleasure to read.

When Townrow is stumbling about in his dis-orientated state Newby manages to give a convincing example of how a down-and-out can become marginalised and abandoned. Townrow is only saved through the obligatory, but confusing, love of a good woman.

All this to a background of the Suez Crises and gun-running to Cyprus.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Kindle edition is for Istanbul only!, 5 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very annoyed to find, after I had downloaded it, that the Kindle edition only includes the chapter for Istanbul and has no information for the rest of Turkey. When I looked back I noticed that when you click the kindle option from the books page it shows a different cover which does say 'Istanbul Guide, including a chapter from the Country Guide' but this is not very clear. I am returning the download for a refund.
