Astonishing story

by Bluegrassfan on June 18, 2010

I wandered into a used bookstore in Plymouth, CA (now gone) as a break from the Bluegrass festival down the block. Proprietor was wearing army fatigues. He said, "Ever read this book? It's the greatest book ever". Well for 50cents, who was I to quibble. Book lived in my bike bag for years. I finally read it. Greatest book ever? No, but up there with the best adventure/survival books. I didn't notice the poor writing another reviewer was annoyed by. You have to love the bravery of all the people, and toughness of the main character. Steinbeck's "The Moon is Down" will give you a flavor of what the civilians were like in Norway at that time.
