Having read John Simpsons 'going to the wars' and enjoying it thoroughly i was a bit dissapointed with this read. Okay, as advertised, 'short stories', but these are too short, interesting reads but they felt a bit like showboating and didn't feel succinct. John has always appealed to me greatly as a journalist, these don't do him justice, he should of invested more time, it feels like they have been knocked out on a long haul flight. Sorry John, i am going to have to re-read your first mentioned book i think.
