Most helpful critical review
I enjoyed the latter part of the book more than the beginning.

I'm glad I continued reading 'Crossing the Line', I enjoyed the latter part of the book more than the beginning. Although I had read (and enjoyed enormously) both 'The Soldiers Return' and 'A Son of War', I found the introduction unnecessarily abstract, Like the occasional conversations I have with a particular neighbour who talks to me about people, whom I have never met, as if I had or I ought to have met. Perhaps that is Melvyn's point, but I find it frustrating.
