4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous stuff - but it makes for a very big book!, 18 Jan. 2010
This review is from: The Complete Richard Hannay: "The Thirty-Nine Steps","Greenmantle","Mr Standfast","The Three Hostages","The Island of Sheep" (Paperback)
This collection of the adverntures of the admirable Richard Hannay is an utter treat. While I can't concur with an earllier reviewer that his later adventures reach the heights of the 39 Steps, they are cracking adventure stories in their own right, and Hannay is one of those chracters whose fate one cares about - it is good to hear that he thrives - albeit amongst a series of hair's breadth escapes and nerve shattering adventures!
The one downside of this compilation that I would flag up to potential purchasers is that the book is a thick one - probably about 7-8 cm deep and correspondingly heavy. This makes it actually quite unwieldy to read - no settling this in one hand and a cup of tea in the other! Also I really don't think the binding quality is v good. By the time I had read all the books, the spine of the volume was very creased and somewhat loose despite my being careful while I read it - the weight of the rest of the book does the job by itself, I think.

With the greatest of respect, this is a £1.99 edition - a fraction of the price of a magazine and with plenty more reading value in it, even if you do throw it in the recycling bin after you finish it (as you would a magazine). Oh and the battery never runs out. And you can read it in the bath without worrying about the risk of dropping it.
