As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning
As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Novel, 1 Mar 2004
What a marvellous book.
On the face of it a simple coming of age story, that of a young man leaving home to walk around Spain. A very layman's view of it, as this however is written for the poet inside us. Wonderful language for a long lost age where you really could abandon yourself completely and travel in its purest sense.
Beware though as this book may make you want to give it all up and set off with your knapsack

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 1 Mar 2004
This review is from: Papillon (Paperback)
I have never written a book review before this, Papillion however moved me to do so.
You may well have seen the classic film with Steve McQueen & Dustin Hoffmann. Forget the film, this book is absolutely incredible. Despite being a 600 pager, this is a genuine attention keeper.
Although its a adventure/escape novel, whatever genre you prefer this will grab your attention and not let you go until the end, by which you will be forced to read the follow-up "Banco".
Do not miss this book!
