Elaine: “The Swiss Family Robinson” by Johann David Wyss
The story of a family shipwrecked in the West Indies whilst enroute to Australia. Many of us read this at school, but Elaine says it’s even more powerful when you read it again as an adult.
Get out of bed (or just lie in) with Kevin John and Jane Holmes. Great music, good clean fun and entertainment, plus regular news, weather and traffic, all the info you need to start your day. Listen closely, and you may hear yourself on the show one day!
I found the commends on 'What are you reading?' interesting.
I have just finished reading The Barbed-Wire University -the real lives of the prisoners of the Second World War" by Midge Gillies. In this book she relates the trials and tribulations and highs and lows of the POWs in Europe and Asia. In Europe many of the prisoners studied university degrees, became ordained ministers of relition, planned escapes, built a golf course, and formed orchestras to entertain the German citizens. The POWs of the Japanese, whilst their life was the most difficult, many still managed to learn new trades, perform in concerts and keep notes of their time behind the wire. I recommend this book for anyone interested in military history.John Watson Friday 17 February, 2012 - 7:57 PM
