I started this book with doubts, as it dealt with war. Then I totally got absorbed with the main character Mick, and waited eagerly every day for the time to read. During the days I hurried things through as I wanted to get back to Mick-and-Moira.
Now that I finished the book, I feel so lonely, I miss them. I hope that the author writes more, what a reading pleasure.

Fascinating true story
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this amazing story. It is incredibly well researched and beautifully written. The characterisation is brilliant. No Ordinary Man describes the life and innermost thoughts and emotions of a war hero during his years in military service and how it affected his life after the war. It captures the atmosphere and situations he was in so that I had a picture in my mind throughout and felt I knew the characters. It describes the life of a cross dresser with great sensitivity without sensationalism.
I highly recommend this book; it has a fascinating story and makes you appreciate what the young men went through to keep our country safe.

Berni reviewed No Ordinary Man and Rated
A great read and a hugely successful first novel.
I really enjoyed getting to know Mick. His struggle with cross dressing probably had a greater negative impact on his life than the war did. The detail in the book has been so well researched and Mick as a person came to life for me. What a great first book.

No Ordinary Man was a book outside my usual reading genre.
Despite this, it only took a few chapters for me to drop into the zone of investiture. And I had to keep on reading … from the brutalities of war, to the tenderness of enduring friendships and unusual alliances, this book gripped me on a number of levels.
It ushered me alongside the life of this ordinary, yet (yes) extraordinary man who exited the last page with that ‘twist’ that all good ending novels should provide.
Thank you Nicky Webber!
