Eric Lomax was a young army officer who, during the Second world War, was one of the men forced to build the Burma railway. This book is his autobiography. It also details the meeting he had with his Japanese former torturer, Takashi Nagase, many years later. The crazy thing is, Eric forgave Nagase.
Nothing could make me like this book. I am sorry.
This is a book telling the story of the five tragic Lisbon sisters who are remembered by the boys who watched them from afar.
There is definitely a resounding feeling of pretentiousness in this book for sure.
Another holiday read.
