Review by: Anthony Saville on Oct. 03, 2012 :
I too was a schoolboy in the 1950s (on the other side of the globe) so I enjoyed his enjoyment of boyish escapades. A sympathetic style from a sympathetic author. I did find his writing at times a little staccato. He has plenty of dialogue which is great, but a bit one-paced.
And, perhaps most oddly, he does not sense when there is an incident of greater tension or excitement, that needed slightly different treatment. He is so relaxed about the murder of a taxi driver, it is almost disconcerting. And then there is a wonderful description of scout camp, and the cooking of a complete stew inside a hollowed out pumpkin laid on the embers of the camp fire: that deserved so much more than its single paragraph. I wanted the recipe!
