Waited ~15 years for the final book!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Lion Box Set: 1,2,3 (Hardcover)
I read the first two Last Lion volumes in the late nineties when I was just another painful adolescent. I couldn't put the first tow books down, rereading them a number of times, eagerly awaiting the third, final chapter in the great man's life. Then poor William Manchester had a stroke, rendering him incapable of completing his third volume, and then he passed away in 2004. I thought that was it, the third volume would never see the light of day. But then Paul Reid came on board, and the third volume was finally released in 2012.
This hardcover set is of great quality, and will look suitably regal on anyone's bookcase. As for the third volume, it is of an equal quality as the first two volumes, and Reid's writing style is similar to Manchester's.
It was worth the wait!
