Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By The Emperor on June 3, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
This was quite powerful and even moving at times. However it wasn't always that convincing and I thought the writing style was slightly basic.

The quality of the writing, the attention to historical detail and the basic narrative drive was very inconsistent and I got the impression that it could have been a lot better than it turned out to be.
