pattern of Islands,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Pattern of Islands (Paperback)
I'd been looking for this book for ages. Had enjoyed it enormously when it was a set book @ school. Very English gentle humour. Entertaining and a glimpse of "empire" England and therefore rather unPC, but delightful nonetheless.

Mr. N. P. Tompkins says:
This was a set book for me also. Dave Wilson used it for many years at Wellingborough Grammar School and I was reminded of it in a book about the old school published recently. It has inspired me to buy a copy and read it again. As someone who now seeks travel wherever I can in my working life it has made me wonder if reading this book at school had a subliminal effect on me!
