I purchased this book through Audible because it was featured and on sale. I thought it would be an opportunity to experience a new, to me, author. What a shame. Because of the narration and the melodramatic reading and descriptions I could not finish it. It was so Jr. High Schoohish. Because of this first experience I will not purchase anything by Nevada Barr or anything being narrated by Barbara Rosenblat. What a waste of money. I will be more carefull with anything featured or on sale thinking they have to dispose of inventory.
This author is an extreme liberal with personal political rants. This is a self published, self recorded by the author who goes off on tangents of political opinion with very little substance. This is such a low budget recording, which had a lot of hiss, squeaking doors and clearing of his throat it is almost laughable. It was not till after ten hours of listening that I started learning anything and found his information to be very generalized. Did I get some ideas? Yes. Could I get the same elsewhere, yes and I did with more detail. This in my opinion was a total waste of my money and time. I cannot recommend this to anyone.
I found it boring and non plausible. I will really have to think hard before listening to another by this author or any other narrated by this individual.
Sorry, but after an hour and half I would expect to be hooked. I wasn't, I just could not do it any more, that is listen to the story or story teller. I was totally bored with it all. I am sorry I wasted a credit on this one. Wish there was some way of returning it.
I found "Spook Country" so booring I could not finish it.
