Top critical review

Both a wonderful romp and curiously over the top! Rather spoilt by its somewhat excessive length and gory body count.
The author is a knowledgable, hugely enthusiastic writer who would be well advised to keep a blue pencil to hand and to score out swathes of otiose and over - descriptive writing, as it appears on his steam typewriter in future.
I enjoyed much of the book, but it could have been so much better had it been more disciplined.
By the way, I may have missed something, but quite what was Battersea Power Station manufacturing?
