its always a pleasure to read what Mr. Bond writes but Rusty's London trip was only 20% of the book... the title was a little misleading but the read was not!

This one was a definite 4.5! It dragged a tinnnnnnny minnnnnnny bit but otherwise, Mr. Bond didn't fail to impress me (as usual).

To anyone who is homebound or wants to become a writer, this book is an introduction into the world of a budding writer, beautifully written in the heart of Dehra.
Bond is a name to be had in every bookshelves and to be read, 're-read and read again, no matter how old one is... That is the magic Bond weaves with words.

Somewhere on the cover there should be a disclaimer saying "only for kids below 14-15" . It's not bad, it's not good... it's just plain, simple NOTHING!
