    " I really enjoyed this story. There have been a lot of books written about eastern european migrants in Britain, and you'd think it has been done to death. But this is a tremendous story that explores how hard it is for some people to scrape a living, to do what's right for the people they leave behind, to try and learn enough and become skilled enough without being exploited, and to get ahead in a land that is not their own. Its a reflection of British society, of love and age, of government bureaucracy and friendship that crosses race and culture, and all so well woven together into an entirely credible tale that both makes you sad, but uplifts as well. None of the characters are strictly beautiful; they are scarred and and faulted like the rest of us, sometimes frustratingly so, but the strength of bonds of friendship and love and literature are so effortlessly, beautifully drawn. A truly enjoyable journey. "

    " I liked this book but I didn't love it. I would give this book three and a half stars if I could. It was a very good account of an immigrant trying to make it in a new land but I thought the last few chapters were quite forced and rushed. "
