A friend of mine recommended this book to me. I was mesmerised not only by the well-written nature of this story, but also by the fact that it was non fiction: an account of real world political intrigue and injustice. Highly recommended reading.

Fun "read"

I enjoyed David's prose and use of language. The honest and touching rendition of inside one's family.

Kenneth Branagh made this an interesting story. I have read the book before and found it fell short. Mr Branagh's reading changed that for me.

When someone opens an instructional piece of non-fiction work talking about how "...great God is..." and how "...grateful they are to God" in helping them with their writing, I lose immediate interest. What a pity...

Both thoroughly enlightening and entertaining.

Stephen Fry, in reading his own work, drew me in. I loved his storytelling -- of a subject I might have found tedious, but which he made interesting and entertaining through his words and reading style. I was hooked until the whole work was complete...

Although quite long, these lectures were interesting and often entertaining as they uncovered the secret world of espionage... genuinely enjoyable if the subject interests you.
