The Power of Chance
So the book will appeal to those with an interest in celebrities, but for the more general reader, looking for a good story, I'm not so sure. The first part of the book seems to consist mainly of snippets of information, with none of the longer anecdotes that make a biography interesting. As the author was the editor of a number of other peoples biographies, I expected rather more from this book. The last part of the book describes the author's time in the army in the 2nd World War. This is mostly formed from letters to his 2nd wife Comfort, and as such put together as more of a story. Unfortunately the material here is less interesting than in the earlier part - many people must have gone through the same army training and adminsistration.
