Overview

Deighton's historical fiction Goodbye, Mickey Mouse vividly evokes wartime England. In the winter of 1943-44, a group of American fighter pilots flies escort missions over Germany--among them the deeply reserved Captain Jamie Farebrother, estranged son of a deskbound colonel, and the cocky Lieutenant Mickey Morse, who's well on his way to becoming America's Number One Flying Ace. The only thing the two men have in common is a wealth of courage, but they forge a bond of friendship in battle with far-reaching consequences for themselves...and for the future of those they love.

Bestselling British author Len Deighton is known for his complex, nuanced espionage thrillers, beginning with his very first novel, The Ipcress File.

Great writer, great story. Very few writers, especially of well -researched and accurate historic fiction match Len Deighton. I learned a great deal about life in the Air Corps, life as a fighter pilot, and the reasons behind the strategy. Besides that, it's a page turner, like Bomber. All his books should be on Nook. if you read history and generally shy away from fiction, doon't be afraid to read Deighton. The great historians do and learn and quote from him.

I haven't read all of Len Deighton books - I've actually only read three - SS-GB, Bomber, and Close-Up. Bomber and SS-GB are, IMHO, excellent - the kind of books that you just can't put down. Close-Up is pretty good - not as good as the other two. I read online a couple reviews for "Goodbye, Mickey Mouse" - all of them said it wasn't as good as Bomber, and if you were expecting something like it, you would be disappointed. However, based on my previous experiences with Mr. Deighton books, I thought to myself "well, how bad can it be?" It's BAD. I'm not even sure how he got it published. It's just plain boring. It's the kind of book that you read to the end only to say "ok, I finished it". Not to mention about 95% of pages are here, there and everywhere - and the story is closed in about three pages. Len Deighton loves: avoid this book like the plague, or you'll wonder what Mr. Deigthon was on when he wrote it.
