Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boris: The Rise of Boris Johnson (Paperback)
This book was good in the end. When I started reading it I thought it was going to be horribly sycophantic, and the author's rose-tinted view of his mate. It wasn't, and the analysis seems pretty believable (apart from the Boris being PM bit).
I was attracted to this book because Boris is an entertaining character, but clearly has a serious side. I think he can do well in journalism and politics, but I have a funny suspicion that it could unravel the more senior he becomes. Simply refusing to engage with awkward questions, to me, seems to be a major flaw that people will get tired of.
He's an amusing character, and the world of politics and journalism would be much poorer without him.
Well done to the author for getting something out there, as curiosity is bound to rise over the next year.
