it was amazing
bookshelves: lawrence-of-arabia
Recommended for: Lawrence fans, Arabian revolt buffs
Read in January, 2003

Lawrence doesn't write in a style that's easy to read, let's get that cleared. His narrative is confusing, his style is a burden and in this book he insisted on detailing every camel they ever saw and every sandstorm to blow by them, but some main events like battles and campaigns are often quite lost.
However, it is a book written by Lawrence of his side of the Arabian revolt and he gives a fair background story to how things came to be this way so at least descriptions don't come out of the blue.
It's a book I recommend, despite its problematic points.
