The beginning read quite slowly, because a lot of background info is needed about 90's UK politics and its personae.
It also turned me off at first, because there's such a huge gap between this one and the preceding vol.
Anyhow, later on you cannot help but be mesmerized by the Mole clan as usual :D ( )

The great baby you see there is not yet out of his swaddling-clouts. Shakespeare, Hamlet

True, we might never have arrived, but the fact is we did. If only people thought a little more about it, they would see that life is not worth worrying about so much. Lermontov, A Hero of Our Time
To Louise
First words
I take up my pen once again to record a momentous time in the affairs of men (and, thank God, because this is intended to be a secret diary, I am not required to add 'and women').
