The writer has a very witty and clever personality and his exploits, while extremely dangerous, are recounted with such flair and intrigue that you admire him all the more for the things he did. I feel that he had an incredible story to tell but I never connected with anyone, not even him. Jan 13, Sana rated it it was amazing.
