4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book let down by poor writing, 24 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stakeknife: Britain's Secret Agents in Ireland (Paperback)
Do not want to enter into the was he / wasn't he an agent debate and I will leave judgement on the rights and wrongs of the actions in the book for the individual reader to determine for themselves. My main complaint with this book was the tone and the style of writing. The subject matter - ones opinion and viewpoint to oneside - is fascinating but I found that it was let down by a style that was bitty, text that was poorly written. The result of this was that I found it more of a slog to get through than I had anticipated. A shame really, but I would still say that this book is worthy of a read.

If that's how you found it, fair enough. I read it in two days, found it fascinating, and the style - fairly transparent, there is little to be said about it - no trouble at all.
