5.0 out of 5 stars A Survivor's Tale, 3 July 2011
The book synopsis may suggest a harrowing read but although Tony is the victim of a gross injustice he is also a survivor and this is not a depressing read but rather a story overflowing with heart and soul.
The book deals with the British Government's Child Migration Programme, the subject of Jim Loach's recent movie 'Oranges and Sunshine'. By focusing on one boy's story, the book vividly brings to life what it must have been like for the many children who were ripped away from everything they knew and transplanted into a completely new reality and forced to forge a new life.

What a fantastic story, brilliantly told! As I read the book it made me realise how much one website has changed the way we do so many things. It's pretty incredible to realise that the two guys who set it all in motion only met in 1995 and didn't start the company until 1997!! A riveting read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wierd and Wonderful, 25 April 2007

It's start had me hooked as Eric, having woken with severe anmesia, is torn between believing his therapist, Dr Randell and a series of letters and parcels from "The First Eric". Who should he trust? At first it appeared reasonable standard thriller fare.

However, when strange noises emerge from a locked room and Eric is almost eaten alive by a conceptual creature from the deep, without leaving the house, things become seriously weird.

Stick with it, go with the flow and its a very rewarding read. Eric is Alice in Wonderland, Dorothy in Oz and Neo in the Martix… Read more
