The overall story is fascinating A lot of it is truly terrifying But the writer seems incapable of taking himself out of it The stories and machinations are interesting That Mr Hubbard saw them and how and what he thought and his specific visas when he saw them isless soIt s also deeply unfocused It suffers from a very American journalism lack of focus the reader gets the impression that it is an extremely rough draft It reads like an essay stretched far past its natural length Or maybe he just needed to make several essays about it Either wayHe also suffers from a common delusion that regular people were as fascinated and repulsed by the Khashoggi affair as journalists were Khashoggi simply wasn t interesting enough dead or alive to warrant so much space in the book Just because they liked him at parties doesn t mean it s going to outrage ordinary people like say destroying YemenAnd frankly Khashoggi could ve saved his own skin by keeping his mickey zipped Maybe it s boredom and resentment on my part at how much space he took up but he came across as a boring and pettily thoughtless manThere are good points but this is an amazing premise wasted I found myself longing to see of some paths that Hubbard glanced at rather than what he himself thought and of course Khashoggi For instance he makes it clear that for all of MBS probably sincere nationalism the Kingdom is being circled by international finance MBS idolizes Thatcher It s going to lead to some very predictable ends if it s anything like the West the economic forces that destroy family formation are going to be blamed on the social liberalizationThe basic useful information you could always have gotten from Wikipedia The insights from within the Kingdom are frustratingly poorly fleshed out and the author can t keep himself put of it What feels like 13 of the book is dedicated to Khashoggi s deeply banal textsThere is a fascinating book to be written about this topic This is not it

    characters ì PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Ben Hubbard EPUB MBS: The Rise to Power of Mohammed bin Salman By Ben Hubbard – learntopark.co.za This reads like a trashy biography than a great work of Middle East modern history Though maybe that was what was intended And I found myself comparing it to a Piers Morgan diary However the writer clearly had none of the same access direct to his subject matter And that probably explains the bizarre level of focus on his few sources eg large tracts of Kashoggi's text messages I also often found myself wondering whether the book was abou
