It did an excellent job covering a complicated subject. I would have to listen to it several more times to really understand all the things that contributed to the finanacial system meltdown, but not due to any shortcoming of the book.
It's not a work of fiction with multiple characters so the reader does not have to do multiple voices or anything, but he read it like he was telling a story and sounded like he was interested in what he was telling. That makes a big difference over a dead pan recitation.
The Financial System Perfect Storm
This is a pretty long audiobook and often with long fact-filled non-fiction books, I grow tired of them before they are over, even when I am intrigued with the subject matter. Not with this one. It was written well and read well and held my attention throughout.
I re-listened to this after many years in preparation to watching the movie. It was as good as the first time. Not sure who narrated it then, but I was pleased with this narrator, same or not. The narrator does a good job with the many characters. I can't judge whether his accents for them (Scottish, Hungarian, etc) are perfect, but they sound right to me. He is obviously British which works well for a British spy novel.
It is a typical LeCarre spy story. Well written with an intricate plot.
A very good listen.
