Can't see other reviewers' fuss ...
on 30 September 2013
I intend to return to this review after I've finished the book, but so far, the thrilling historical ride that's described by every other reviewer just isn't happening in the copy I'm reading.
I've read plenty of non-fiction books written by journalists who manage to make things clip along at a good pace, produce genuine page-turners, and bridge the gap between "high history" and "common knowledge".
Instead, Moynahan's book is a fairly dry slog about the early life of Tyndale. Maybe it picks up here before long, but right now, I'm only reading it for a book club I'm doing; otherwise, I'm not sure I'd persevere.
