I enjoyed Matar's writing and the personal view into this dark Libyan history, but in the end I found the book good but not great. I thought it was a bit too meandering at times and I had a few issues with certain parts, such as in my previous post. It still gave me an insight into something I only knew about in a very surface way before though, and I especially found some of the British government's reaction surprising although I tried to keep in mind that I'm reading a very involved person's very personal account and view of it all.
