The references to Gloucestershire were great as I could really relate to them as I am from that area. However, I feel that even if not from that area you could still enjoy the reflections about an area which was obviously well loved and apply the feelings to the area where you grew up.
The thing I enjoyed most about the book was the way the Glosters were portrayed as always having a positive spirit and always trying to make the best of the situation they were in. There is no doubt that they suffered great hardship, but the way that many of the survivors kept themselves going was through encouraging each other to keep happy. I think this message is a fantastic one for any person, in any situation and it is really brought home in the pages of this book.
Overall I would encourage anyone to read this book, even if they haven't read anything like this before, as it not only helps you to appreciate good things in your life but also shows how a positive attitude can help you through the worst of situations.
