Thoroughly enjoyable easy-read bio. Classic 'lad in Africa' stuff with bonus 'lad sent to English public school '. Reminded me of roald Dahl's 'Boy'. But not as good because that is the best ever.
Had a slightly odd anecdote at the end where he was on the boat on his way to England alone age 10 and he "befriended" a woman (in her 20s?) and they kiss and cuddle. Super dodgy if you ask me but he didn't really go into how it was pedophilia. He said he was in love and enjoyed it. Anyway great read.
