Reply Tedious read Too many names and details Do yourself a favor, skip the snails pace book and see the thriller in the theatre Johnny Depp s performance is stellar Though the facts are different and timeline is compressed, it serves the storyline. Reply Nothing wrong with it, I just couldn t get into it About 100 pages in I accidentally put it in the library book drop but then thought, meh, not worth taking it out again to finish. Reply Amazing Frightening how the Boston FBI helped criminals for 2 decades Reply Very informative of the workings behind such a horrendous collaborative As informative as it was, and obviously a lot of research needed to complete it gave me a sense there was a lotnot said or rather couldn t be written And at times, I got the feeling some of it was speculation to fill in gaps One must keep in mind the authors were not actually there when some of this was happening.I primarily read this just so I would have a background Reply So this is not the usual sort of book I read although I do partake from time to time.This was as addictive as it was astonishing,so because of the factual undertones to every report I did at times feel as though I was reading a different styled Grisham book but maybe that was because of the FBI element.Really enjoyed this, took me a long time to read as it was my commute book but a definite 5 stars from me Will watch the film as well now Reply Fine A bit too detailed and took away from the flow of the story Went into excruciating detail about everything Bulger and Flemmi did before getting to the comeuppance story for the gangsters and the FBI, which was the other very interesting part of the story. Reply Very detailed account of decades of crime and corruption in Boston wanted to read it before seeing the movie It s a good readin the form of long form journalism as opposed to narrative An eye opening story and cautionary tale of law enforcement becoming too involved with informants Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
