100 Magic Moments of the Turf by Graeme Roe
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I've read all of Graeme Roe's racing novels and loved them so I couldn't resist buying this too. Lots of interesting and amusing stories about racing which you will love - whether you like racing or not. Perfect coffee or bedside table book when you just want to read a page or two. The problem is that you will want to read more than that at one time! Well done, Mr Roe. You have obviously put a lot of time and effort into collating so many great stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read, 18 Nov 2009
I've always been interested in the First World War and this book really captured life in the trenches at the end of the war and the atmosphere of the time immediately after the Armistice as everyone tried to adjust to a changed world. The story was really well thought out and crafted, the characters very real and I couldn't put it down! Having also adapted the War Horse for the stage, Nick Stafford obviously has a real feeling for this period. Definitely recommended if you like studies of human nature and period novels.
