Worth reading but not the greatest biography ever written
on 19 August 2001
Living in Northern Ireland and liking Mo's style of dealing with our politics I was eager to read this. However I feel that as a biography it is lacking in intimate detail. Once in a while the author hints but does not give any meat to the bones. We know how individuals feel about Mo but somehow there is a real lack of committment on behalf of the author. If a biography is to be written it must include all details, not those which an author thinks the reader might like, or which may embarass or hinder the person concerned. Nothing must be diluted it's all or nothing.
