My Pandora's Box is a beautifully written easy to read compilation of reminiscences, stories and musings. Its purpose is to entertain, provoke thought and discussion. Sometimes contentious, these essays are based on the experiences of the Ronald Cope and that of the interesting people he has met in his varied life as an Army Officer, Accountant and Managing Director of an Engineering Company with worldwide connections. Politics, religion, the supernatural, romance and intrigue. No subject is taboo. Has the Orwellian view of Big Brother finally arrived? What is the true meaning of Easter? Is there Prudence in Politics? These and many other questions are discussed. Romance spanning decades, and supernatural events sit comfortably side by side with haggis farms and hot cross buns. This book is not easily classified fact or fiction; it is something for the reader to decide. Ronald Cope has set out to entertain and stimulate thought and he achieves this magnificently!
