Journal Entry 1 by Scruffykaz from Rainham, Kent United Kingdom on Saturday, July 16, 2005
A member of a tiny, remote, Burmese tribe famous for their "giraffe-necked" women, student Pacal Khoo Thwe was forced to flee to the jungle during the rise of the corrupt military dictatorship. His lover had been arrested, raped and murdered b the armed forces, and Pascal became a guerilla fighter. But a chance meeting with Dr John Casey, a Cambridge don visiting Mandalay, would change both their lives forever.

Overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles and danger, the two men strike up a scholarly correspondence that would take Pascal from the brutal hardships of guerrilla warfare to the hallowed world of Cambridge University. This is the moving true story of his extraordinary life and miraculous journey.

This is another charity shop find that has sat on my shelf for years. Again, it is no nearer the top of Mt TBR so I am releasing it into the bookbox hoping that it finds an appreciative reader. I'm moving soon so I need to downsize my book collection! Happy travels little book!

Journal Entry 4 by Chucklesthescot from Paisley, Scotland United Kingdom on Thursday, November 19, 2009
It was a very slow descriptive book in the beginning and I just couldn't get into it. I'm impatient for things to start happening so I give up quickly if the book starts slow. I think this book needs someone with the patience to let the story develop at its own pace! Offering this one in ApoloniaX's asian virtual bookbox to find the 'right' reader for it.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

As a previous reviewer noted, lots of description that didn't contribute to movement of the story. I regret to say that it didn't hold my interest enpoough to finish it.

Sent to sofitta1, who requested iut from the Global Village VBB. I hope you find it more compelling!
