A Time of Gifts by Patrick Leigh Fermor

Unusually for me, I did not manage to review this book straight after reading it. It is however still fairly fresh in my mind, so here's a short review.

This was a very interesting travel-log book, telling of the time just before the 2nd War including life in Nazi occupied countries. Wha struck me the most was the reaction to a travelling student, very different to what I imagine it would be today. The only thing that let the book down, in my opinion, was the few German words which were not translated.
