I'm a massive fan of Brian Blessed and his personality and enthusiasm really come through in his writing. Having read turquoise Mountain previously I was looking forward to this and it didn't disappoint, you get a real feeling for the places he's visits and you find yourself wanting to see them and face the challenges yourself.

A rollicking tale of the actor and nature-lover's journey to the "lost world" of Roraima in south America, to fulfil one of his childhood dreams. My only quibbles: too short and ends abruptly. I hope he will write much, much more in years to come.
