Tomlinson was born to be a spy, or so he thinks...., 16 Feb. 2002
According to this book, Tomlinson was born to be a spy and work at MI6. Nothing else would stimluate his enormous brain enough. From his early childhood adventures through to his MI6 training, he was a natural. However, it's a pity for him that the personnel department in MI6 didn't share the same view. He comes across as being somewhat big headed.
As Tomlinson recalls his recruitment to the service and the subsequent training and missions, the first 2/3 of the book plods along at a fairly pedestrian pace and is quite boring in parts. It is only when he is suddenly kicked out that it starts to get slightly interesting. Even then, it is not a book that I would say that is hard to put down.
Not what I was expecting
