Not for Everyone,
This review is from: The Ashdown Diaries, Vol. 1: 1988-1997: 1988-1997 Vol 1 (Hardcover)So some of the other people reviewing The Ashdown Diaries thought there was too much mundanity.
These are Diaries, and in that sense are similar to Thatcher's Downing Street Years. They tell the whole story about his time as Leader of the LibDems, and not just the exciting stuff - if there was no 'average' then it would be difficult to believe.
This really is one of the best political diaries to come out, and I would say that it could easily rival Alan Clark. Fair enough, if you're after gripping page-turning storylines then you will be disappointed, but if you just want to know more about the supreme politician of our age, then BUY THIS!
