did not like it

A book about a sparsely documented historical infamy. Unfortunately this tome like book (derived from a theses) still reads like a theses. The facts are clinically presented in a monotonous and repetitive manner. Yes Caroline, you already told us that mr. x attempted to plant a bomb at y, and was arrested by inspector z on dd-mm-yyyy.

If you are a chronic insomnia sufferer I would urge you to buy this book -- I was able to consistently fall asleep after reading 10 pages continuously. This book is crying out for some brutal editing and republication.
