Would you try another book written by Peter Greste or narrated by Peter Greste?
Certainly, this type of view from someone who has been "on the rough end" beats just story telling. A good novel is one of life's great treats, but the hard reality here of just what is transpiring outside of our usual view, it is a wake up call from the ominus all pervasive twitter daily about us. Bring it on.
What did you like best about this story?
The contrast between being an well oiled up Jurno going about his usual traps, to just what happened when that "Tap on the Door" came is solid stuff. Peter was like most of us and took sometime for the harsh light of day to break in upon him and start to take in just what was really happening. This was when the real pain began. He finally came to the conclusion of just how low was his position on the pecking order of being able to get things done. What a shock! Here the story really gets going, from the nasty prison cell floor, back to civilised life again. From his hell back to life and loved ones.
What three words best describe Peter Greste’s performance?
perseverance, perseverance, perseverance
Could you see The First Casualty being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
A bit out of my realm. TV series often are quite divorced from the truth, poetic licence ??
Any additional comments?
Mateship meant alot, The long hours of solitary confinement would be crushing, completely crushing for most of us. All desire for life would be tried, sifted, who wouldn't consider throwing in the towel, lots do under those conditions. But here was guy who knew himself, and did not give up. One hell of a reporter aye??
