Unless you are familiar with the story of the Cambridge spies this book has little interest. The narration is sleep inducing.

I have always enjoyed Bryson's books but in this one he seems permanently miserable and he seems not to be like Europe or European's.

Really a medical text book. Depressing.

It was a struggle to get through. For me the narrator had a creepy quality to his voice.

I loved every minute of this book, it totally resonated with my experiences even though I am a 64 year old man.

I started off loving this book but for me it grew more tedious as it went on. I think the choice of narrator was terrible, it needed someone who was more animated. At times it sounded as though he was reading a shopping list.

Delightful

A lovely happy book that captures 1977 perfectly, totally absorbing. The narrator is very good however occasionally I would think I was listening to Sue Pollard.

Awful

It was plausible until chapter 2 and then fell into the realm of complete BS. I doubt if a single sentence is true.
