5.0 out of 5 stars A Star from Orlando, 27 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Our Man in Orlando (Monday Books) (Paperback)
This book is brilliant, really brilliant. Hunter tells these incredible stories not only with; wit and candour but also with an abundance of humility, a humility that he appeared to use in his work. I truly admired the objectiveness and professionalism and indeed pride he took in his role as consular.

Although many of the stories made me smile or even laugh out loud there were also some that were very sad and one or two that made me cry "There but for the grace of God go I" I trust other readers will not only sympathise but at times empathise with some of the poor souls Hunter reports on. How many of us have been `temporally insane', touched by madness or `soufflé a folie'? Especially when in the `honeymoon period' of a relationship?I am so pleased I was not in Florida when I had my own moments !

Another thought I had was that I am very happy I live in the UK and think that our judicial system is second to none. I think that to be `wrongly' accused of a crime in the U.S. must be as daunting and difficult to remedy as being charged in Saudi or China. The U.S.A. or Florida appears a truly brutal place to be in if you fall on the wrong side of the law.

I can not recommend this book enough. Whether you read cover to cover, or take on holiday or use on the W.C. you will love it, well written and a great story or stories. I for one can not wait until this is made in to a film and am exercising my brain trying to work out who should play Hunter in the film.
