5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent holiday read, 26 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Ordinary Heroes (Paperback)
I bought this book ages ago, thinking that it would make a good holiday read. Consequently, I took it with me on a number of trips but somehow never got round to reading it. It was a dog-eared veteran by the time it came to the top of the pile. I should have read it sooner- it would certainly have improved last year's rainy fortnight in the West Country. After a slightly slow start (I was, bizarrely, irritated by the typeface...until I realised that it was there to differentiate between the present and the past) I was soon drawn in to the life of David Dubin and his interractions with the other principal characters in the book. I dont want to give the game away, but suffice it to say that there are plenty of emotionally charged moments and some visceral descriptions of the grim realities of war. This is an unusual book, war seen through the eyes of an army prosecuting lawyer, but it hits the mark- passion, adventure, emotion and personal discovery. Not a literary great, maybe, but a really entertaining read. This book will not let you down.
