Format: Paperback
A very engaging story that carries you along with a gentle flow that's intiment in every detail with good self expression, that coincide with feelings of highs and lows taking you every minute along with him, a gift of agreat writer. The encounters of growing up with his divorsed mother in Gosford Australia, while his heart still carries the memories of a small boy who always felt safe with his head buried into his fathers shoulders. You can not help but feel even the landscape and layout of this story that leads you along the the way with a fascinating presence of being there. As you adventure on through the pages you feel and discover along with Simon the sense of a presence guiding his life, directing your steps. Considerable time is spent on every story detail, look this book would make a great movie as well, for it's fascinating well written story that takes you on the path of "The Long Way Home".
