I love the last 150 years of history. Bully Pulpit and the Wilson biography absolute best!
One of the best suspense spy stories you'll find. The narrator's voices and accents are worth the price alone. Slightly disappointing ending but a wonderful listen nonetheless!
The ins and outs are not clearly resolved the story was compelling but overly contrived. It left me disappointed
Silva' s later books resolve much more satisfactory
I really wanted to like this book but I just kept hoping I would get to the end. The story was good but from knowing history, I knew what the end result was going to be. I wanted to get more wrapped up in the characters and the story. It had so much potential but just didn't come through. I wanted more and couldn't figure out what was missing until I next read a Margaret Atwood book. Her characters and the story was like pealing an onion. You kept getting more and more the more you pealed it back. The characters in this book were not filled out, they were too impersonal. I didn't care. I would have like the book to be shorter but deeper.
Quite a plot centered around the secret deception of D-day, 1944, the invasion of France. It was a plot that was believable and used actual characters and places so that the truth could hide in a novel. I found myself referring to internet sources to determine if the people in it were real or imaginary, so the book was well researched. By the end, the plot is so twisted that one wonders who, really, is the titled "unlikely spy."
I just happened upon this book as a recommendation. I like spy novels and this one did not disappoint. The reader did a good job and the story moved along well. I hope to find more like it.
This is a very intriguing book. It explores the personality of spies and the personality of the people who guide them. It kept my attention right from the beginning. I sat up late to listen to the last bit.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys: adventure, romance, intrigue and WW2 accounts. Just a really good story.
Enjoying one good listen after the next!
Spy vs Spy vs. Spy! Loved the plot, in which spy agencies work against each other and perpetrate complex cross-spying, and found myself relating to both the good guys and the bad guys -- some of whom were of the female variety -- a rarity in books of this type. If you enjoy historical fiction -- particularly those related to WWII -- this book will please you greatly.
The plot was so good that I thought I had it all figured out, but the final 30 minutes proved me wrong. Great twists and turns right to the end. Highly recommend this read!
