A brilliant read,
This review is from: The Night Of The New Moon (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)This book had me captivated from start to finish. I was unable to put it down and ended up reading it from cover to cover in a 2 hour stint.
Predominantly my interest in this book is what kept me so interest as it is the story of my grandfather's life in the camp. Despite this, it really is a great book, another classic from Jan der Post.
Please be aware that this is the soft back version that does not include any illustrations to accompany the relevant pieces of text. The hardback version does include these illustrations but as you may find out, that version is difficult to come by. Fortunately I have the original portraits and illustrations to look at.

As Anonymous says, this edition has no illustrations, despite there being a 13-page section at the start describing, and crediting the creators of, the illustrations. There's also no explanation of why the illustrations were not included. A shame Vintage was too cheap to do the book properly.
