I finally found `the` book,
This review is from: The Launching of Roger Brook (Paperback)
I finally found the book you really can't put down (as they claim about every other); without even looking for it. I literally found it in the street, picked it up (for it had a nice cover), and then `swallowed` the whole in a few days' course.
It took me little time to realise that there is something special about the author's style, and that I am loving every bit of it. There's no page wasted on long-winded depictions of uninteresting scenes or lengthy enumerations of historical facts. Of that you would see one page, maybe two, every now and then, very carefully strewn throughout the work, just enough to get you into the picture - and then there goes more action, more good humour, more romance, more adventure...
Very engaging story line, I most heartily recommend. Especially to people in their late teens or early twenties, for those can, no doubt, identify best with the main hero.
