Two names reigned supreme in London's underworld in the 1960s Ronnie and Reggie Kray also known as the Kray twins and i. 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 readingBronson may be a folk hero; bestselling author and award winning artist and poet but his writing just didn't gel with me Bronson writes like a narcissistic thug and even though this is a slim volume I found it a chore getting to the finish line Bronson promises us the definitive Kray book penned by one of their most trusted associates and yet by his own admission the twins were close to everyone and their dog and he sums it up with the cop out there's details he can't share because it could get people killed and even hints a definite book on the life and times of the Krays could yet be written Bronson says time and time again how this is the Krays story not his and yet he ultimately can't resist talking about himself He talks about loyalty and respect to the twins and completely contradicts himself with being blatantly homophobic about Ron's sexual preferences Worst of all I found like Howard Marks in his bio Mr Nice Bronson is very self pitying and self indulgent criminal hardly what you expect from this hard as nails persona he has garnished over the decadesBest bit of the book was the Kray fact file and uotes tacked on the end which basically cut to the chase and gave the reader some clarity unlike Bronson's wolly anecdotes Like I say I haven't read a book about the Krays before but I can't imagine this vanity piece is the cream of the crop

REVIEW The Krays and Me

The Krays and MeT wasn't until 1969 that they were apprehended for murder Charlie Bronson met the Kray twins in prison and eventually b. 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 friendCharlie's books are very candid written with humour and are at times very heartfelt The brutal honesty in Charles Bronson's book is the thing I was struck with He much like the Kray twins makes no apology for his actions but takes no less responsibility for the good the bad and the ugly actions of a criminal mind I do feel the Home Secretary mistreated the twins especially Reggie during the early days of his illness I enjoyed every page of this book the only thing that I skimmed over and didn't really devour was the name dropping
