5.0 out of 5 stars Bien hecho!, 2 Dec 2012
Congratulations to the author for this light hearted yet thoroughly enjoyable book. Clearly well researched and his love of all things Spain comes out fairly evidently.

What do they call these? 'Unputdownable', that's it.

Do yourself a favour and buy it.

Top drawer enjoyment.

Oso Rodriguez.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read. Truly a Great Briton, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Captain Scott (Paperback)
I just finished reading this excellent account of Captain Scott and his attempts to reach the South Pole.
R Fiennes brilliantly captures the essence of the man and his team, going some way to restore Robert Falcon Scott's reputation as a truly Great Briton.

I defy anyone to not enjoy this thoroughly readable and engaging book and think that the men that spent time in such hellish conditions are not heroes. They are the Columbus', Magellans' and Cooks' of their age.

Fiennes describes what some of those conditions must have been like in great descriptive detail - and in the context of the age - how horrendous the suffering must have been.

Well done, Mr Fiennes. I can't remember the last book I enjoyed this much.

5 stars from start to finish.
