You must be mad,
This review is from: The Third Man: Life at the Heart of New Labour (Hardcover)How anyone can even consider buying this let alone read it is beyond me. Complete waste of time and money.

You've read it, I assume?
If not, then perhaps you're mistaking the review section of this site for the letters page of a right-wing newspaper?

If it is 'unbelievable to consider buying this', how can you review it? This is for reviews, not political comment. I don't agree with Mandelson's politics, but he's a fascinating character,and I'm looking forward to reading the book.

I'd stick to the X box if I were you

What is the point of commenting on a book if you have not read it? I do not particularly like the author either, but I will read the book and then make an intelligent, reasoned comment.

Agreed. I met Mandelson once, the guy thoroughly creeped me out and I'm not going to buy his book either (and I voted for them 3 times now too so I'm no Tory) but equally I'm not going to leave a 1* one line review for a book that I've never picked up either. Too many idiots are doing this on Amazon... anything with 'Obama' in the title will instantly have half a dozen 5* and half a dozen 1* reviews attached and I bet only 1 in 12 of them have even opened it.

To be honest ANY person with a quarter of a functioning brain does not need to read anything written by the loathsome serpent Mandleson or the slippery Blair to form an informed opinion on the content. ANYONE who lived in Britain during the 10 years these creatures were in office knows everything there is to know about them without having to read some self serving toe curling tome with all the negative bits edited to make them appear saintly! So I too will be spending my money on an ashtray for my motorcycle rather than add a few more dollars in the pocket of these reprobates!!!!

I am with you on this Mr K Smith. 100% behind you. Why should I give a lying slippery overpaid untalented creep 15 Pounds of my hard earned money to be told a pack of serlf serving lies! And yes, this is not the letters page of a right wing paper nor is it the letters page of a lefty loonie paper either. So you are entitled to massage the ego of your slippery hero mandelson as much as we are entitled to rip into him too!!!
