  • The Once and Future Spy: A Novel of Obsession

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Robert Littell

    Story
    (61)

    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.

    Overall

    I had high hopes for this book after LOVING The Company. This one isn't even in the same league. It's disjointed, the characters are completely incompetent and the "surprise" in the end doesn't hold up. Overall, while not a complete waste of time, I'd pass on this one.

  • Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Story

    Incredible story that is so believable you'll start "prepping" for the Zombie Apocalypse! Bourne's day by day story combined with Snyder's reading performance made this one of my favorites (and I've listened to MANY hours of books). If you like the genre (heck, even if you don't!) pick this one up. No doubt you'll sit in your car just a few more minutes listening to this one!

    "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).

    Overall

    As I'm listening to the final couple hours, I'm bummed that this amazing story is coming to an end. While long, it's worth every minute. If you like the genre, you'll love this book.

    Highly recommended!
