    The Persimmon Tree opens in Indonesia in 1942 on the cusp of Japanese invasion and the evacuation of Batavia (Jakarta) by the Dutch. Seventeen-year-old Nicholas Duncan is on holiday there, in pursuit of an exotic butterfly known as the Magpie Crow. It's an uncertain, dangerous time to be in Indonesia, and Nick's options of getting out are fast dwindling. Amidst the fear and chaos he falls in love with Anna, the beautiful daughter of a Dutch acquaintance, and she nicknames him 'Mr Butterfly'.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Persimmon Tree to be better than the print version?

    Unfortunately, I did not read the print version. The audio version was a perfect way to occupy two weeks of my commute.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Persimmon Tree?

    Courtenay's account of the experience on the beach was depicted with skill. He made his audience feel the experience.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to my next adventure with Courtenay.

  • Agent Zigzag: A True Story of Nazi Espionage, Love, and Betrayal

    Eddie Chapman was a charming criminal, a con man, and a philanderer. He was also one of the most remarkable double agents Britain has ever produced. Inside the traitor was a man of loyalty; inside the villain was a hero. The problem for Chapman, his spymasters, and his lovers was to know where one persona ended and the other began.

    Scott says: "Intrigue and True"
    "A Good Read For History Buffs"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This novel reads in list form, much like a diary. I was hoping for a smoother story line.


    What could Ben MacIntyre have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There was little dialogue in the novel. This separates the reader from the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.
