5.0 out of 5 stars Old Soldier, 5 Feb. 2013
What a fantastic book. At last a really in depth storey about a second world war hero from the Japanese camps. The authors have captured the essence of the problems faced by those caught in this horror story. I can't imagine when I was his age I would of had the presence of mind to be so positive about the daily drudge of life in the camps. The quoted anecdotes give an extra boost to the realism of the life there. To then go on after the war to identify the graves of his friends shows great courage. After to forgive the camp commander was just so unusual. The portrayal of the whole story so succintly told

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Enid Blyton & W E Johns stand aside!, 18 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The Eye of the Storm (Paperback)
I bought this book for my kids - it is just a fantastic story. I am amazed at the depth of knowledge of the writer, clearly she has an intimate knowledge of boats and the West Indies. This is very helpful with the storey line, but the essence of the book is the great story, it moves at a cracking pace to keep even the most bored teenager with their eye glued to the page. This is an adventure storey that all kids in their early teens will be able to associate with, written in a language close to their own speak. This does not detract from the sophistication of the author's ability to write a book in a cohesive literate way. As with all good books it keeps you guessing right to the end.
