Interspersed with this are details of the sorts of rationing being introduced, and various details of life as it was being lived then. Although this is mainly a war record entries about his wife, his children and his family and friends, his war work, food and prices, are interspersed all the way through. He worries quite a bit about his family, but is very positive about his wife's ability to cope.
For me his style of writing is fluid, easy to read, and, I have to say, entertaining. This may have something to do with the editing, or course. But overall, a really good and informative book.
I gave it 3 stars as I think it would definitely be enjoyed by others and for the fact that Mr Brown did such a meticulous job of his diary, noting down all the little details and drawing illustrations. Its just not one for me I'm afraid. I got half way through and had to abandon reading it as I was too bored, so it went off to the charity shop for someone else to maybe enjoy.
