Customer Review

on 13 September 2011
I really tried hard to like this book.... I know I should be more sympathetic to his plights, but to be honest, if you like POW escape stories that are packed with adventure, then I would really give this book a miss.

It starts off well enough, detailing how Jan manages to escape from the Germans and is betrayed. At times the tension is fraught and the plot races along.

However, as the novel continues, the story just becomes extremely repetitive. Jan is laid up in various sheds, caves etc, and you get so sick of hearing about the weather you just want something to happen to break the monotony of the book.

If I had to sum up the story it would be: Snow, sleep, snow, sleep & a bit more snow....

I know that it is a miracle he survived the ordeal but it's just not a very exciting one...
