    Under The Wire (E–pub) This is a difficult one The story was great but the writing was not I made the comment to myself a few times while reading Well he's not a writer he's a photographer Also when it got to the part where Marie died that was it There were a few comments on breaking the news to some others about Miss Marie being gone

    Under The Wire (E–pub) This is a difficult one to review Mostly because you feel a cow for giving a book like this three stars when the author risked life and limb to write it But there were a few too many tunnels and bombs and rockets for me as indeed for the poor author I imagine I was left feeling both gobsmacked and unsatisfied at the same time Gobsm

Under The Wire Summary ç 105 F HomsBut tragedy struck before the pair could finish documenting the slaughter A rocket killed Colvin and ripped a hole in Conroy’s leg As Syrian ground forces closed in on his position Conroy was forced to make a terrifying last ditch attempt to escape from a regime that appeared determined to murder himUnder the. I have mixed feelings about the career of war correspondents much like I have mixed feelings about this bookAs a member of a respected news organization my first feeling is one of reverence for people like Paul Conroy and Marie Colvin who hoof it in dangerous situations so that the world can know the truth about the atrocities committed by men like Bashar Assad Without them we would never know much than official government reports tell us which we know is only ever a shade of realityBut when you set aside the sheer bravado and romance of the idea it just seems really fucking stupid Conroy openly describes how his job shattered his first marriage and sets his whole family on edge every time he goes out on assignmentAnd for what Some situations like the plight of the Free Syrian Army in Homs are unfixable even when you speak truth to power Dozens of people put their lives at risk to make sure that Conroy could make it out of Syria so he could tell their story That s the refrain the reader is offered time and againBy the end of the book I had lost track of the number of young men who drove Conroy on motorbikes through enemy fire offering grim humor and cigarettes in the face of fate These guys are not long for this world with the decisions they ve made but now their lives are potentially even shorter because we needed to get a few photographs in The Sunday TimesI d be sick with guilt and I think you can tell Conroy is given his fawning depiction of the FSAI can t really fault the book though It s a gripping account of a lifestyle that I could never live but that I am abstractly glad other people can

I don t often write reviews but in this case I felt I had to offer a balance to the baffling amount of 5 star reviews this book received because a couple of chapters in I was annoyed that I d been encouraged by them I can only imagine they were given by friends and family of the author Here s the thing Under The Wire is a great story but a terrible book It s difficult to criticise it without feeling mean spirited because Paul Conroy is undoubtably a brave and well meaning guy But Paul is a photographer not a writer and that fact becomes apparent very early in To be fair the blame for how bad this book is has to be shared 5050 with whoever is supposed to have edited it Here s a uick run downPros Clever jumping back and forth through time and places to build up back story A gritty insight into the horrors of modern day war The story of brave people trying to do the right thing Cons Utterly dreadful childishly bad writing that distracts from what should be a compelling story Paul constantly tirelessly freuently overuses adverbs that break up the flow of the narrative There s no insight into the repercussions of Marie Colvin s death I don t believe any conversation in this book happened as described For some bizarre reason when people talk to each other they all call the person they re talking to by their first name EVERY time EVERY person EVERY conversation Paul do you think it s safe hereMarie I don t know what to sayWa el how are you Paul I m fine today Marie we are getting into the car nowPaul I m goodNot actual conversations from the book It s completely jarring and irritating and ruins the flow every time Just bad bad writing trying to be poetic with incomprehensible descriptions Childishly bad stuff Here s an actual paragraph from page 177We continued on our cross country route as the sun bade us it s daily farewell Slowly with the silent and stealthy movement of a cat stalking it s prey we were robbed of vision Night fell upon us and with the darkness came the fear It wrapped its invisible tenticles silently around all of us in the vehicle No one spoke The night belonged to the hunter and the hunted Page 253 What I replied in shock The news was like a smack in the face so powerful we re the words that tumbled from their lipsPage 277 I m sure I could have dismissed the whole affair as a rather uirky dream Sadly this wasn t the case and just when I thought I had seen it all there was to come Weird continuity errors on one page he s walking down the street in winter a few paragraphs later he s talking about how it s an autumn day Constant childish talk about how much he loves cigarettes There s lovely cigarettes in every chapter Rarely have anything to do with the story he just likes taking about cigarettes A lot To sum up Paul is a great guy a brave photographer and an admirable human being but he is one of the worst writers I have ever read and this a painfully bad book to read It s an amazing story but it should have been written by someone else Ultimately the editorpublisher has a lot to answer for bad editing and shameful use of Marie Colvin s name to sell Paul s bad writing Absolutely not a 5 star book
