4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good........, 15 Dec 2013
This review is from: Taking the Fall (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Quite often sportsmen turn their hand to writing. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. This one does.
A.P. McCoy has been Champion Jockey for an unprecedented eighteen consecutive years and has ridden 4,000 winners, so he cleary knows a lot about horse racing, but can he write? Well, yes, he can. Not as smooth as the obvious comparison one might draw with Dick Francis, His style is a good deal more edgy and modern, but relies on a good tale, well told. This is a story of a young jockey's revenge on the meen who ruined his father's career. How Duncan Claymore achieves this without getting himself killed is the spine of the book. McCoy has chosen to tell the story of Duncan's dad in snippets throughout the book which I found made it a little disjointed, but that's a minor niggle.
I shall look forward to hearing more from this author.
