Disappointing For Atherton
on 30 October 2012
I was eagerly awaiting the release of this book in paperback for weeks, and when it finally arrived, I could not wait to get cracking.
The book is essentially a collage of his newspaper reports about different topics, ranging from the match-fixing saga, to the rise of English cricket.
What makes this book interesting for me is not only that you get an understanding for some of the facts, but Atherton also gives his opinion, which allows the reader to perhaps read a different point of view.
I only gave this a three star rating because I felt that it was a bit too long, and after a while, I found it quite tedious. The book was only a disappointment for me because I thought that his autobiography was excellent.
Overall: Not a bad read, but I got bored after a while. A good book to read in stages.
