Word War One Thriller,
This review is from: Greenmantle (Collector's Library) (Hardcover)
A great read. Nearly a hundred years have gone by since this book was written and the words still leap off the page and the story keeps you glued to the page! Buchan was a remarkable man, of his time, and this Hannay story which follows on from the "39 Steps" takes us behind enemy lines for a life and death adventure. The tone of the book is openly "jingoistic" but, as "Greenmantle" was written during the war, this is hardly surprising and there is a greater understanding of and empathy with the "foe" than might, at first, be suspected. In any case I couldn't put it down and I like the Collector's Library format too! Fits in your pocket and looks good.
