5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful piece of writing, 6 Nov 2003
By 
This review is from: As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning (Paperback)
It's not often that a story grabs your attention straight away like this one did with me. On the face of it, a simple story about a young man setting off to find his fortune in a foreign land, the book has so much more. It's about youth and idealism, friendship, life on the road and the desire to just keep moving until you stop. And even though he obviously wrote it many years after making the trip (the emotions running through the tale are those of middle age not late teens), it hardly matters. Quite brilliant. Just like the 'sequel' A Rose for Winter.

Arun Debnath says:
Just like you Donald, I too fell in love with the first paragraph about the description of the bay at Vigo as I could visualise myself sitting on that cliff at the picturesque Vigo. But I also feel that the book is not only about youth, idealism, friends, life on the road BUT also of love - love for the author's hero, love for travel, love for beautiful landscape, love for others - his family and friends and his daughter, his parents and so on. Didn't he say about his father, "I wish I could have loved him more." And this continues throughout this book great piece of creative writing. I wish I could write like the author. A.
