The Only Genuine Jones was published almost a year ago but the blog reviews are still coming in. I thought I would share the latest one because I think it’s one of the best reviews I have yet received on any platform, and really showcases how the book resonates with some readers.
“Alex’s style brought the scenes to vivid life and I could imagine being there, right then, mingling with the greats. It was then I realised I could really enjoy this book. In fact I actually got really excited when it became evident they’d have to sit out a storm on the summit of The Ben. Not in a modern bivvy or mountain tent. Or even call up the rescue (for this is the 1890s) but dig their way INTO the observatory!”
“I’m throughly glad I read this book. It’s been a long time coming I think. That mix of historical fact and lively imagination coupled with a deeply philosohpical vein that Alex mines superbly. The evening in Glencoe will stay with me for a long time and I’m sure I’ll look on the old place in a new light the next time I’m up on those crags.”
Many thanks to Alistair for posting such a fantastic review.
