I enjoyed this book. I really do not like Boris Johnson at all and I was interested in how such a character has come to have so much power....I have not changed my opinion of the man since reading this. I still do not like him and if anything he is worse than I thought.
I think the author remained balanced throughout and gave an unbiased view though. She explained him pretty well without passing on her own opinion . She obviously has done a lot of research and it is an interesting read. My only criticism is that I would have liked to have heard about how he came to be such a star of HIGNFY - I have always blamed Merton and Hislop for making BJ popular. This was mentioned but not in any detail.
