The One You Love (Emma Holden Suspense Mystery Trilogy, Book 1)
The One You Love (Emma Holden Suspense Mystery Trilogy, Book 1)

3.0 out of 5 stars OK read, 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite a good read which got better as the book went on but at one stage I felt it was a little over descriptive about mundane events. I'm not sure if I'll read another in this trilogy as there are so many other good books to read first.

Jojo Moyes' books are the best. So easy to read and great story lines, this one is no exception. If you haven't read any of hers - treat yourself!!

This review is from: Silver Bay (Kindle Edition)
I love Jojo Moyes books, I haven't yet read a bad one and this one was one of the best. Isn't it great when you can pick up a book and finish it without realising that you've been reading but have just absorbed it?

This is a very short and seasonal read. OK for a bit of fun but only because it was free!

4.0 out of 5 stars A very different war story to most, 9 Feb. 2014

A very unusual and honest account of an ordinary soldier with a high libido who came through an horrendous experience better than most. A good example of riding your luck when it comes your way.

3.0 out of 5 stars A truly remarkable man, 9 Feb. 2014

I wanted to know more about this brave and valiant man but was a little disappointed by the parts of the book not relevant to his famous escape. Once it got down to the nitty gritty of what he went through, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Portrayal of Little Known Event of The War, 9 Feb. 2014
This book is a rare personal insight into what happened to our forgotten army during a dark period of the war against the Japanese, who later became our allies.
It portrays the difficult and stressful times that every soldier was going through at the time and the fact that orders made lead to loss of life.
It is an honest account of the bungled operations made due to lack of resources that was in competition with the war in Europe. It depicts the valiant effort and unrivalled bravery of the Indian Army against a fanatic foe at ground level.
From Imphal to a suicide mission in Malaysia that is only avoided by 'The Sunset in the East' to an undocumented part of our history when we re-armed the Japanese to fight along side us in Java, this book is a fine account of a soldiers personal experience in the theatre of war.
Whether it's an account by a sailor at Trafalgar; a soldier at Waterloo or on the Western Front, these sort of books are invaluable to our history.
