I liked this book on several levels. I grew up in the same area & knew Patrick, his family & many of his friends, although I don't recall meeting his father. He's about 8 years older than I am, I think. I know the area & the people, so there are a lot of memories in here for me.

This is a cathartic book for him, obviously, not something I normally like, but he does it very well. The scenes are somewhat disjointed, but that came across better, with more life, than a straight account would have.

If you like horses & want a view into what the horse racing life was like, this is a must read. Few areas in this country are as 'horsey' as the Monkton scene. Even today it is possible to ride for miles across the area. ( )
