Gregory S. Lamb
on April 18, 2012 :
If you ever wanted to learn about Cyprus during the 1950s before Cypriot independence and before inter-communal conflict tore the island apart, then read this first hand account from Allan Cole. This story reads as a memoir, but what makes it interesting is Cole's amazing detail. The characters are real and so is the landscape as Cole describes it.
The author could have benefitted from some careful editing as there were a few errors here and there, but none of them were terribly distracting. I would read another book by Allan Cole because I think he's clever and honest.
