This review is from: My Heroes: Extraordinary Courage, Exceptional People (Hardcover)
I found this book moving, inspiring and very well written. The fact that all the stories are true, made it one of my all time favourite reads.... Mr Fiennes is someone who certainly does not lack courage, and he paints moving portraits of figures from recent and less recent times in a way that brings the characters to life.... if these stories had, say, appeared in a major newspaper,I am sure the author would have been recommended for awards..... as an English scholar in my earlier years, I found the literary style engaging, and I couldn't put the book down.
