Too many stools,
This review is from: Watching War Films With My Dad (Hardcover)
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this. The trouble is that now I’ve finished it, I still don’t really know what it was. Part memoir, part history, part comedy, part cultural commentary – the result is a bit of a ramble and it falls between too many stools. Historians will likely find the comedy diversions annoying, readers looking for comedy will likely find the history too in-depth. Fine for an easy read, but for me, it lacks cohesion: not funny enough for comedy, not rigorous enough for history, not engaging enough for a memoir.
