Top critical review
an autobiography would of been a lot better
20 October 2012
Ac is an incredibly interesting character with a fantastic story to tell. Unfortunately the way he tells it spoils it for me. I get it, he's printed it the way he wrote it, as quite a shorthand quick account. But for me this format lacks real thought provoking elements and is frankly difficult to read.
It is good at getting across the sense of the always on pressure of politics and his personal life certainly suffers as a result. But there are only so many times you can read "GB and PM aren't getting on at all at the moment" before it becomes annoying.
Equally he seems to take for granted that the reader knows all the background to events
I enjoyed reading to get a sense of politics but I will not be reading volumes 2,3,4.
I hope he writes an autobiography because this is just written too poorly to really enjoy
