    ePUB pb reisen gewusst wie.de Õ An Old Captivity Epub Ñ An Old Kindle - captivity pdf, An Old epub, An Old Captivity PDF/EPUBThis old yarn of a novel feels as though after a minimum of plotting and the occasional assisting sip of whisky and soda the author just typed and typed until the book was doneIt opens with the framing device of a man listening to another man's story Logically the point of view in the rest of the book until we reach the frame again should be the storytellers but it isn't at least not consistently Slightly oddly the end of the story doesn't match up with the storytellers situation in the introductory chapter which is set some years after the events that he is going to describe That's ok the story is entertaining enough and a sip or two of your whisky and
