The Companion Book Club, London, 1966, De Luxe Edition, hardback with dust wrapper, NF/nf, boards dark green/gilt, dark green endpapers and edges of text block, 224 pp. Our current partner charities in the UK are READ International, the National Literacy Trust, Room to Read. At the airfield where he learned to fly he's managed to keep his rank a secret and it's here he feels most at home.

This, and other similar, casually tossed off asides are instrumental in keeping us intrigued as the mystery builds until Henry finally begins to peel back the curtain. The top edge of the page block is darkened with some foxing and staining, not affecting the interior pages. Tie in a little bit of romance, a frankly adorable international birth control smuggling ring, some immensely clever plotting, and one of the best action sequences I've ever read, and you have Flying Finish. This leads to a great ending with of course torture, Henry beaten and an escape in a DC4 over Europe. But all Henry wanted was a career that would bring him some genuine fulfilment, a little adventure, and a chance to prove his true character.The hero is pretty clearly intended to be read as being somewhere on the autistic spectrum (although it's never made explicit) and the handling of both his interior monologue and his emotions is fascinating.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Each duck features ornate detailing throughout as seen in their etched wings and life-like feathering, making each bird appear as if they are the real thing. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). You will come to love the world of Steeple Chase racing, you will grow a fondness for horses, stables, trainers and the people who live in that world.Use it as an adhesive for eyes, a thick head cement, quick-building clear back for scuds, or instant repair for damaged flies. When you are going at high speed and overbalance a stoppie, you'll slide along the ground for a few meters, so you can slide over the finish line.

And then today we decided we just had to finish both chapters 17 and 18 and get to the end of the story, because let me tell you, these last four chapters were un-put-downable.But he soon discovers that something else is going on in the guise of transporting horses,in his new job.
