In light of that though, I wish I had read it before I knew it wasn't true. As a true story it would be poignant and heart wrenching, as well as inspiring. As a work of fiction it loses that a little. If it's not a memoir, which we now know it's not, it becomes a pretty boring story.
At the end of it all there is a page that gives one-liner updates on the bigger players in the story- 'so and so went on to do this or that'. I really liked that. Truth or fiction, it was good to know what happened to everybody else.
