Read Me -- MIRALY'S Book of the Month blog.

MR AMERICAN, George MacDonald Fraser

A whirlwind of storytelling. It is remarkable how Frazer draws us into the life of the character, and all his ups and downs. The book is long, but it reads so easily, like you are simply listening to someone tell you a story. It is a wonderful feeling, so personal. And, despite all its ups and downs, the book is eminently hopeful about life, even unto the end, reminding one of Eliot's remark that "the end is where we start from".
