The Special Prisoner – Jim Lehrer

Jim Lehrer’s The Special Prisoner is a stinker of a novel!

It’s a story about revenge for crimes committed in Japanese prisoner of war camps during World War II. Despite being mildly curious about how the story might develop, the stilted writing and preposterous plotting forced me to give up halfway through.

My first thought was to destroy the book, to prevent anyone else picking it up, but on reflection I’ve decided to give it to the Oxfam charity shop. I’m sure there will be many more purchases and returns of this book, generating a steady flow of income to the charity!

This does, however, contradict an earlier post I made on the subject or giving bad books to charity shops…

Have your say!
