This is a story that grips and entertains you from start to finish. It is also the type of novel that is rarely written today which is a great shame as there is much to be said about good old fashioned story telling. Having enjoyed the novel so much I dipped into some others by the same author but found they did not match the 'charisma' of this novel. There is something innately charming, poignant and stirring about it that is rarely found in many other novels. It has a real emotional impact as it takes you through the highs and lows of one man's life; and you don't stop 'plugging' for him at any point in the story. A great read.
