3.0 out of 5 stars more reference than novel, 17 Nov 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Churchill: A Life (Paperback)
Known for his excellently researched and painstakingly detailed books I picked this up with some trepidation. It took me a while to plough through it. I feel that there is a little too much detail for the general reader especially in the 1920s and early thirties. The sections on the two wars, and his exciting early life are much more readable. The book is also very much from the Churchillian point of view and does not devote much space to opposing points of view. This is a good book for seeing the world through Churchill's eyes.

This is a very poor review, I don't think you should be reading biographies if you don't like detailed references, especially of such a giant among men as Winston Churchill.
