Customer Review

on 15 May 2005
This is a thoroughly entertaining and absorbing book. Although the author/protagonist grew up in New York, and I grew up in a small town in East Sussex, England the book strikes a chord with my own coming of age. One reviewer remarked that nothing really happens in this book, and that's quite true. There is no big lesson to be learned, and there is no technical detail to be absorbed. The author simply puts into words the strange attraction that boys of a certain age had with this new technology, thought of as a toy at the time, which then changed the western world over the next 2 decades. I literally couldn't put this book down.
