The Pursuit of Aggression - The Rise, Terror and Fall of the Kray Twins Book Review

The Pursuit of Aggression - The Rise, Terror and Fall of the Kray Twins by Christian Shakespeare is an in-depth view of the activities of the legendary Kray Twins.

I picked this book up because it was part of the Kindle Unlimited and I do have interest in the Krays and while the book flowed quite well and was well written in the way it read I felt let down by the spelling and grammar mistakes in the book. It starts from their childhood to their death bring together different people’s views on the Krays with an insight into their life in prison that can be overlooked in other books I have read.

The interesting part of this book was the way Christian focused on the dynamic of the twins, and how the dominant twin changed from to the other at different times of their lives and the situations they found themselves in. What brought together all of the books about The Krays and this one included is they couldn’t have been what they were without each other they dependence on each other was what they,

Overall I gave this book 2/5 on Goodreads because while it was light-hearted and relatively easy to read for a non-fiction book I couldn’t get past the spelling mistakes and grammar. That said having done some research finding out that it was independently published I have to to say I might have been a little harsh with that grading.
