A blitzing good read.
on 6 March 2004
What if you were transported back in time? Back to 1940s London, during the blitz?
Well that's exactly what happens to unsuspecting George Wetherall when a school trip to Eden Camp (a Second World War museum) slips him sixty two years in to the past!
However the reality of war-time London is nothing like George imagined. It's frightening, harsh and bloody, and not at all glamorous.
Swindells has produced a first class time-travel story, here, which grips from the beginning and doesn't let go until the very last page. It's hugely entertaining, both full of adventure and some quite poignant moments. And like all good books, there's a neat little twist to the tale.
I've always loved Swindells books and would rank Blitzed among one of his best works.
