Each chapter describes one of the stages and is very evocative. The book is written in a journalistic style, but it works well to bring the race to life. At the end of each chapter is a section on Wiggin's life, gradually moving from his early years through to the 2012 Tour.
As a fan who has watched the Tour and followed Wiggins, Cavendish and Team Sky for several years this really hits the spot and deserved 5 stars. If you didn't watch the 2012 Tour it probably wouldn't be as compelling, but still a good read for anyone interested in cycling and a great sporting achievement.
Two small criticisms related to Kindle, I did not like the 1.5 line (or maybe double) spacing of the text and the photographs at the end are not properly paginated for 6" Kindle with the captions spilling onto the next page so you see a caption that matches the previous picture, not the one you are viewing. This does not spoil the book but is slightly irritating so I took 1 star off for this and for missing the back room boys.
PS - sorry about the title but I couldn't resist it.
A reasonable piece of writing but I think I will still be buying the real thing.
