    In 1992 Vasili Mitrokhin defected to England and brought along an extensive archive of military intelligence from the Soviet Union. A career KGB officer who served as chief archivist for its foreign operations, Vasili Mitrokhin became disillusioned with the Soviet system and its constant repression of dissidents at home and abroad. Determined to preserve the truth, he secretly compiled a detailed record of the agency's worldwide espionage network...

    Overall

    Great narrator, great story, but for those folks who suggested The Company is the same kind of book, I disagree. This book is fact base and everything is real. The Company is fiction and all made up. My only regret is this audiobook is not unabridged.
    In point of fact I think abridge book should be allowed unless the author himself cut it.

    One of the 20th century's most challenging novels of ideas, The Fountainhead champions the cause of individualism through the story of a gifted young architect who defies the tyranny of conventional public opinion. The struggle for personal integrity in a world that values conformity above creativity is powerfully illustrated through three characters: Howard Roarke, a genius; Gail Wynand, a newspaper mogul and self-made millionaire; and Dominique Francon, a devastating beauty.

    The story is potable, but how she describe Altruism it is opposite of how it actually is. She promotes selfishness, while Altruism is about being selfless.

    I had regards for her as an author, until I listened to her interview in You Tube with Phil Donahue, when I heard her racial opinion on how Persian are primitive and British have full right to pomp Persian’s crude and own it, simply because they do have the technology, to me she joined the Himler’s zone.

    Although Donahue answered her, but I would have rather that he replied to her on her own plot language base on her own book characters,. Since Howard Roark build the house for Gail (the Banner's owner) even though Gail pay for his service and own the land, Roark should own the house because Gail didn’t know nothing about architecture, and consequently he is a primitive man.

    The woman was a racist and racism to me is pure ignorance. Thereby I didn't even read her Atlas book.

    The Devil comes to Moscow, but he isn't all bad; Pontius Pilate sentences a charismatic leader to his death, but yearns for redemption; and a writer tries to destroy his greatest tale, but discovers that manuscripts don't burn. Multi-layered and entrancing, blending sharp satire with glorious fantasy, The Master and Margarita is ceaselessly inventive and profoundly moving. In its imaginative freedom and raising of eternal human concerns, it is one of the world's great novels.

    beatrice says: "Baffling and original"
    "Horible reading"
    Overall

    The book is complex and require full attention, and the narrator dancing around with his heavy British accent on Russian characters. He increases his audio-volume and shout unexpectedly, you can imagine how inconvenient that is while you do your cardio and someone, suddenly SHOUT in your headset, must stop the cardio and turn down the volume (unprofessional) he is trying to perform, and its makes the book impossible to listen. Why in this website they never sample when narrators read a dialogue because that when we can see how horrible they are. It should be flat reading Like Jeremy iron in Alchemist.
