It seems churlish to criticize Guy Adams for not writing the book I might have wanted to read but not only is his prose leaden and lumpen but the short chapters and large print hint of a project gone awry.Read more ›
It is apparaent that Rossiter was a very competitive and driven man.In this he resembles Robert Shaw.Both acors who died very young.I would have liked to get some idea as to why he was so driven.However this book is so banal and boring that i gave up half way through.I paid 1p for it and reckon that i was overcharged!

So glad I wasn't put off by negative reviews.A thoroughly absorbing and well-researched commentary on an actor for whom the writer displays enormous fondness and respect.Published on 23 April 2015 by topnotchtosh
