Excellent little book
on 14 October 2012
You might be thinking that at £1.31, it doesn't really matter whether this book is good or not - it's cheaper than a bottle of water at a train station. In truth, that was my thought when clicking the 'order now' button. I scanned the reviews, but didn't pay them much heed.
Thankfully this cracking little book turned out to be well worth the £1.31. Indeed, I'm not sure what surprised me the most; the price, how good it is, or the fact the print edition is older than I am.
Presumably a new addition to the Kindle library, there are a couple of typos, and not many pictures. Mindful of when it was written, there's no swearing either (something which I found difficult to accept, having worked with a former submariner!). Nonetheless it is a very good read, charting the patrol and shore-leave highlights of HMS Tally-Ho and her crew during the final stages of the war in the Far East.
To me, a good litmus of a book's quality is how late one stays up reading - in my case twenty five to two before I suddenly realised how tired I had become.
On that basis, thoroughly recommended little read for enthusiasts of the subject. It's well written, and easily accessible, making it ideal for dipping in and out of during the commute.
