Here are 990 pages of great storytelling by one of the best storytellers I have ever read. They start just prior to the catastrophic carnage of World War I. We are shown the trials and triumphs of Richard Hannay. Our hero happens to be a real human being. Passing through his perils and pleasures we are given a living picture of his place and time without a veneer. I don't think any author living today could write Richard Hannay's world the way John Buchan does. The book is unabridged. It's a chronicle of its age. John Buchan can also describe poetically.

Wordsworth has done the English-reading world a huge service by coming out with this very-very affordable collection of adventures involving someone who must have acted as the template for James Bond at one stage. But it is the stories and my feelings about them that are in my review, as under: -

Once again, I had to read a door-stopper of a book to re-realize the reasons that had compelled me to concentrate upon short-stories, and had led me to abandoning novels. The 5 adventures in this book, all involving the heroic activites of Richard Hannay, established the follwoing: -

1) As long as the story was short, compact, and the hero had to rely on presence of mind, physical fitness, and practical courage to overcome the obstacles as well as to solve the myriad mysteries that he encountered in the process, the book remained "un-put-down-able". The moment the author started padding his stories with stuff that howlingly asks for suspension of disbelief, I drifted off.

2) Richard Hannay works perfectly as a hero as long he kept himself confined to adventures that had simply come his away, and he didn't have to chase them. The moment the opposite happens, where somehow the fit & practical soldier is tailored into the clothes of a secret agent and shooed away to do job that the professionals have failed to do so far, he lost me.

3) Somehow Buchan succeeded in sullying the plain & pure guilty fun that was being drawn by me out of the "boys' yarn"-s in the first two novels, by introducing the pompous Mary in the third novel onwards.

The Richard Hannay stories of Buchan are all here. Best Known will probably be the Thirty-nine steps -which has seen four movie versions over the years that I know of. The others would have made good movies too, but I understand that Buchan's heirs wanted too much money! Handy to have them all together here, The only drawback, however, is that the volume is very bulky.

I've read a lot of the John Buchan books, all good suspense classics from another time. Well worth a look.
