Websites online filled in historical detail, but this book made the events and people come alive. It's refreshing to read such natural, adept writing. I haven't enjoyed someone's writing this much in ages. :)
I can strongly recommend this book to readers that want to be taken on a journey through times when such an undertaking as flying from London to Australia was measured in weeks rather than hours. At the same time Frater's account of his attempt to follow the footsteps of the Imperial Airways route in modern times is highly entertaining. And, at least I again am full of admiration for the aviation pioneers that have paved the way for today's well-oiled machinery of commercial aviation.
His sense of Humor adds a special appeal to a wonderful factual story.
I have now read this book 4 times and will read it again.
