5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent biography
Highly recommended. 'Michael Collins: Most Wanted Man' is gripping and packed with interesting anecdotes. The book would be of great interest to readers who are unfamiliar with the events of the early 20th century in Ireland and it would also be of interest to readers who are looking for a new perspective on those events.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read
Over use of "ear-biting" anecdote but an interesting read nonetheless. Should be read in conjunction with other Irish histories of the time to understand the background.

This review is from: Michael Collins : Most Wanted Man (Kindle Edition)
An excellent book. If you enjoyed the film "Michael Collins" you will love this. If you like this you should also read "England's Greatest Spy".

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read if you are interested in Irish politics, 26 Oct 2014

This review is from: Michael Collins : Most Wanted Man (Kindle Edition)
A great read if you are interested in Irish politics, shows again the injustices of the British government at that time and the struggle that the Irish people had against a cruel British army. Michael Collins was an incredible man and this book demonstrates that and how he went unnoticed about his business side by side to the occupying forces who were searching for him. Keeps you reading!

Average read which did not go into any depth or analysis. Some factual inaccuracies which was a shame considering the information is freely available.

3.0 out of 5 stars book is more like a school history book, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Michael Collins : Most Wanted Man (Kindle Edition)
book is more like a school history book,none of the finer details and fairly basic. very small also.
There was so much more to the man that would have made the book much more interesting.
Its a quick history lesson but not much more than that.
