excellent riveting read if you love history
on 30 March 2016
excellent riveting read if you love history, until you reach chapters 6 to 11 when I think the author loses the plot totally he is completely pre-occupied with details about his families exploits and goes on and on about India as though the book is completely about the tea trade in India, chapter 12 onwards offers a little redemption and slowly grabs your interest once more thank god, this said the book is worth reading if not just for its historical content.
