Publisher's Summary

Long Sunset is an intimate personal view of the sunset years of the former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. Anthony Montague Brown was Winston Churchill's private secretary from 1952 until his death in 1965. As the last member of what Churchill called "my circle" to have written his recollections, these memoirs shed much light on Churchill's activities and attitudes during his final decade.

For Churchill fans

This book is very well written and narrated, but its subject matter is a bit narrow in appeal. It details the final years of Churchill's life. As a Churchill admirer, I enjoyed the book and felt it was a way of spending time in the presence of the great man WSC was. You will learn about people around WSC and more about the issues of the day, but there are no bright new insights into his character.
The author is a very literate and amusing guy, who only occasionally uses this forum to settle political scores. Two strikes against this book are: 1) the first quarter is about the author prior to his association with Churchill. That may not appeal to everyone but I liked that part. 2) This is perhaps the WORST sound editing I have ever heard in an audio book. Things go along fine for a stretch and then there's duplicate lines, long pauses, repeated words, etc. It's as if no one bothered to listen to the final audio product and correct the many recording errors. I don't know how to rate this defect, The narration, by the author's nephew, is very good, the story is interesting, and the book overall is fine. But if there were a category for "sound editing", I would give one star.

Fasting Account

Anthony Montague Browne’s account of his career and the twilight years ofSir Winston Churchill is well written and full of interesting observations and anecdotes. The book brings the reader (listener) into the intimate fold of Churchill’s life. John Milligan’s narration is perfect and is a worthy complement to the book.
