A Rollicking Adventure Story,
This review is from: Prester John (Paperback)
Having read Buchan's '39 Steps' many years ago I thought it was time I re-acquainted myself with this master of the short thiller/adventure.
I wasn't disappointed ! A thoroughly enjoyable read, the somewhat anachronistic language highlights the changes in society's attitudes towards race since it was written but in no way detract from the book's charm.
Buchan's crisp and fast moving prose make this a real page turner !
