Arthur is the prototypical 'angry young man'--outspoken, dissatisfied with the status quo, rebelling against stifling class distinctions--insolent and self-confident, his high wages enable his disdain for following orders and his hard drinking, red-blooded weekends. He is determined to enjoy his freedom as long as he can get away with it, before being trapped by marriage into conformity, surrounded by nappies and rent books in a new housing estate4938ocn050710058book20010.06Roberts, RachelTrial by fireJuvenile worksFictionThe thrilling conclusion to a six-book story arc.

From here they intended travelling to Brussels, but the headache of one member of the party forced them to stop at Ghent, where they visited the Cathedral with its Van Eyck altarpiece. From here they travelled to Liè€ge before crossing into Germany at Aachen. The next stop was Cologne, from where they travelled by river down the Rhine to Koblenz, which occasions an amusing account of the donkey ride up to the Stolzenfels, Sankt Goar, Kassel and Mainz, eventually reaching Frankfurt. They stayed here several days, attending a performance of Der Freischutz at the Opera, before returning by way of Brussels to Lille, where the party separated, with some continuing on to Paris and others, including the writer, returning to London. Although there are descriptions of the sites visited, the journal is perhaps more interesting for its lively descriptions of the social minutiae of the journey, such as the bureaucracy involved in international rail travel and the atmosphere in each of the hotels they stayed in.
