    One thought on “Bert Hinkler: The Most Daring Man in the World”

    1. Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Aviation, history, and a legend. Given his standing as a national hero, I am suprised how little I knew about him. Fabulous read.

    2. An easy read about one of the heroes of Aviation. The story was written clearly and in a manner which kept me turning the pages. Not bogged down by boring detail, it brought to life a fascinating story of a pioneer and his passion for flight.

    3. A really interesting read about a fascinating character. A very important piece of Australian history told in a lively, interesting way. Well done.
