    "Enjoyable.."

    Told in the first person..
    After the rave reviews I felt a little deflated setting my expectations too high. BUT saying this the reality of the Crimean war shines through, you are there on the battle field, smelling seeing breathing the sheer horror of the era.
    I wanted more from Jack or maybe just from the surrounding characters a little more exploration of their lives as a few piqued my interest.,lets just say it's a lot just for one character to carry the whole storyline even though his is a good story with a cheeky ending that made me smile. A solid four stars and I will keep a definite look out for more from this author.
