5.0 out of 5 stars A "terrible" story that you cannot put down, 9 Jun. 2010
By 
This review is from: The Forgotten Highlander: My Incredible Story of Survival During the War in the Far East (Hardcover)
The sooner this book gets onto the school curriculum the better. Whilst it is a story of terrible suffering it is a remarkably easy read, a teenager would have no trouble reading it in a fairly short time. Not only might it help to put their own lives in a bit of perspective, but there are a various group discussions which might arise, for example the question of forgiveness (Mr Urquhart has not forgiven his tormentors - should he?).

I generally dislike assertions that a good book should be made into a film (why can't people just enjoy the book and their own imagination?) but in this case I think there is a definite argument for it (British funded, made and casted please!).
