    One thought on “The Krays and Me”

    1. I've been interested in the Kray twins since the film came out back in 1990 but this is the first book I have read on the subject so I don't have anything to compare it to and this is also the first book I've read by Charles Bronson so again I don't know how this measures up to his other works. What I do know is based on "The Krays and Me" I have no particular interest in further reading.Bronson may be a folk hero; bestselling author and award winning artist and poet but his writing just didn't [...]

    2. I think this was, as expected, a brutally honest account of Charlie's time spent with the twins. It actually did dispel some of the rumours and discredits a lot of the books written about the Kray twins based on the fact that Charles Bronson knew the twins longer than some other authors, and he never 'grassed' on them, therefore remaining a life long friend.Charlie's books are very candid, written with humour and are, at times, very heartfelt. The brutal honesty in Charles Bronson's book is the [...]

    3. Bronson's upbeat, quirky style of writing (although it's so personal and fascinating that it's nearly like being in a cell, having a cuppa and discussing old stories) keeps everything moving quickly and was loads of fun to read. Tales of criminals from another criminal! Bronson's personal insight to the Twins is an OUTSTANDING ONE. Albeit, there are some loyalties to his friends, but not so much that it becomes too faulty a source. This book is absolutely with fascinating facts, stories, opinion [...]

    4. There are many books out about the Krays and I have read a few but this was my favourite, I will elaborate a little later.

    5. Very interesting bookReally enjoyed this book, good to find out the truth about the krays from someone who's not just trying to cash in on their name.
