Cracking good laugh!
It's up there with the best of them. A little short but very entertaining. It's like a tube of Pringles, once you start you just can't stop!
It's not so much a favourite character as it was written in the first person. But the humour and camaraderie of the book makes for great reading.
He gives a little life to the book in places where it could be hard to tell if it's a joke or not, having said that with a military background I get the humour in the book
Just the humour and the fact it was written without needing to big it up in the action scenes.
At 5 hours it's a little short, knowing how much trouble I managed to get myself into without trying (in a fun way) whilst on tour I would have liked this to be longer.
