    Story
    (62)

    An elite plan is afoot, a plan so secret and dangerous that its existence is known only to a tiny group of specialists within the innermost core of the CIA. There is virtually no paper trail - but somehow the plan has sprung a leak and the plotters must urgently plug it - or face deadly consequences.

    Would you try another book from Robert Littell and/or Scott Brick?

    Yes The Company was a great read and Brick did a great job.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Littell again?

    Yes same as above. Maybe he just needed time to mature as a writer.d


    What character would you cut from The Once and Future Spy?

    Nate


    Any additional comments?

    The back and forth between the civil war and present was hard to follow. The characters and their names were almost comical. Story was "disjointed". I stopped listening halfway through part two.

    16 years of peace and prosperity have passed since Lord Otori Takeo united the Three Countries. Takeo and his beloved consort, Kaede, have three daughters and a happy family life. Their success has attracted the attention of the distant Emperor and his general, the warlord Saga Hideki, who covet the wealth of the Countries. Meanwhile, the violent acts and betrayals of the past will not lie buried, and other secrets will not stay hidden. Everything that Takeo and Kaede have achieved is threatened.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    boring going through the motions/words.


    Did Harsh Cry of the Heron inspire you to do anything?

    Not buy "Heaven's net is Wide". I'm struggling to finish "Harsh cry of the Heron".


    Any additional comments?

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    If you could sum up The Company in three words, what would they be?

    Great mix of an action novel with historical events sprinkled throughout


    What did you like best about this story?

    The authors story line, detail, and development of characters. Both pull you into the story and you don't want to stop listening. Bricks narration is superb.
