Reads like an art history textbook. This was a very hard read and the author writes as though he is trying to attain a word count for a professor, with long drawnout descriptions of the Action Groups exploits and long winded thoughts and observations about them. Every so often you get a morsel of good stuff and then it is back to the dry recounting of who and why, even if it has already been explained.
