The Great Train Robbery is based off of a true story about a group of thieves who attempt to steal a fortune in gold. After the crew has a plan to make off with the gold, they attack. Most of the book is planning, and the actual robbery doesn’t take place until the end of the book.
This book was pretty good. It is a book that takes a while to read, and it is a little confusing at some points. It was interesting, but I wouldn’t read it again.
