3.0 out of 5 stars Very good as far as it goes, but ..., 27 Feb. 2014

...it only covers 2014.

Brilliantly well, but it looks as though he ran out of time to get it finished in time for the centenary, so he stopped in December 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read, 18 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Revelation Space (Kindle Edition)
The story that 2001 should have been ... an alien artefact which is impossible to ignore, whatever the consequences may be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelmed, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the examination of the background facts to each of the Cabinet meetings seems pretty comprehensive, I wanted more.

What I mean is that I wanted each episode to experience some of the tension surrounding what, on the whole, were pretty important times in this nation's history. Instead however each chapter finished unexpectedly, and left me feeling flat and dissatisfied. There just wasn't a sense of a story, with a build-up to a dramatic event.

I have read a reasonable amount of history books lately and each one left me sorry that the story had finished, like a good novel. This one just leaves me wondering whether I can be bothered to even finish the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the reviews, 25 Aug. 2012

I bought this ahead of publication and really looked forward to it. Yet it was dull, dull, dull. More like a family biography than a story about the war. Pretty disappointing.
