The Long Ride Home: The Extraordinary Journey of H&hellip by Rupert Isaacson
5.0 out of 5 stars The healing continues., 21 Aug 2014
The continuing healing of autistic Rowan makes a wonderful tale of the love Rupert & Kristen have for their boy, special in every way. This book takes the reader to a place of hope & inspiration, with gratitude that at last a way has been found to help children so badly affected through no fault of their own. When those who scoff at shamanism and natural healing understand that they know nothing, maybe this world will be a better place for all of us. Recommended.
The Horse Boy: A Father's Miraculous Journey to He&hellip by Rupert Isaacson
5.0 out of 5 stars Pure inspiration., 16 Aug 2014
There's no miracle cure for autism and it can affect any child in any family. The dedication and caring shown by Ru and Kristin to their lovely boy is truly inspirational. The dream trip to Mongolia is not for everyone, but they had the guts and belief to follow the dream & it paid off for Rowan. Recommended reading when inspiration is needed.
Shout At The Devil by Wilbur Smith
Shout At The Devil by Wilbur Smith
5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant tale., 26 July 2014
One of the best from Wilbur Smith, this is a book of two halves. The first is funny, relatively light-hearted and somewhat superficial. The second half is deadly serious under the occasional humour, a tale of revenge set in the mangrove swamps of East Africa which enthralls and holds your attention. Most enjoyable and highly recommended if you like your war stories with a bit of a twist. A brilliant read.
