Great stuff, second (or third?) time around even. Gripping story, simply told, unbelievable survival story. Read this again purely because of going to see the film, which was smashing. Can't remember if this made me cry, but it probably did. This book was a pressie from Ian Ludd I think, from when we visited him once in Germany, and he just said to me to keep it. So I did.
