Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Whitehall Mandarin (Kindle Edition)
Having just finished and enjoyed an earlier E.Wilson book, I bought this at full 'new Kindle book' price. I wish I hadn't, it's all over the place, sprawling, yet with the barest of threads connecting the different stories. It also spans quite a time period, so, for example in parts, characters who were killed in earlier books are still alive in this one, I presume because the time-span of this book is broader than earlier works, but the book doesn't paint a clear picture of where you are in the timeline, so it all just seems very confusing. There are sections of this book that I enjoyed, but as a single title, it fails miserably for me.
