Reviewed by Eastleigh Library Wednesday Group:
A book similar to the TV series Mash. Difficult to read as events were not in a linear sequence and members could not identify with the characters. Enjoyed 30-40 years ago when it was a ground breaking book, but now seeming somewhat dated.
Star rating: **
