This review is from: The Broken Road: From the Iron Gates to Mount Athos (Hardcover)
This book is like a rare vintage wine, sip it gently and don't binge drink. Having said that the prose skips along and it is mesmeric in its way. The book offers a picture of a vanished world, but reassures us that values of adventure and friendship survive. I recommend this book unreservedly - I've read all PLF's other books and they long ago formed the basis for my own stuttering career as a hack. This book is fuel for dreamers, walkers and anyone who believes life ultimately is the greatest gift of all time.
