5.0 out of 5 stars A triumph of comedic writing, 9 Mar 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete McAuslan (Paperback)
Because THE COMPLETE MCAUSLAN isn't available in the Colonies, I had to spend the extra gold to get it shipped across The Pond - and it was worth every penny.
This is one of the funniest books I've ever read. Granted, it's actually a compendium of three works previously published over many years, but I salute Fraser's ability to sustain the level of humor from the beginning to end of his McAuslan saga.
Another of the author's remarkable talents is his ability to recreate in text a heavy Scottish dialect. After finishing, I gave the book to a colleague from Scotland, and she delightedly pronounced the dialogue authentic.
I suspect that this collection of stories, based on Fraser's reminiscences of his own stint with a Highland regiment, will entertain anyone who's ever served in the military, no matter what country or service branch. I myself spent 11 years in the U.S. Navy, and I couldn't put it down.
Absolutely first class!
