HIGHLY ENJOYABLE READ,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Autobiography of a Thief: The Man Behind The Great Train Robbery (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book.Most people-me included- know that Bruce Reynolds was involved in The Great Train Robbery,but know little more about him,this book rectifies the problem. Bruce writes with candour and honesty.The majority of the book covers his life before the Train,and it very interesting and very readable,there i also a fair amount of humour in some of the characters he comes across,especially Nobby Clarke who served a customer whils robbing a shop. Bruce Reynolds manages to cover the gulf between a long diatribe on crime/jobs/criminals and page turning enjoyment.This was a very good and enjoyable read and put to bed many misconceptions thaty have grown up over the years concerning The Great Train Robber, and the criminal fraternity of the 1950's and 60's.
