The way to Peace is right in front of us, if we would only think. At the crux is women's ability to choose when and how many children she should have. This should be on every Congressman, Politician, Religious Leader's list. Actually everyone would benefit by this thoughtful presentation.
I listen while walking the dogs, or vacuuming, or doing other household/yard work tasks.
I could not keep the multiple characters straight without REAL concentration... which of course, I did not have. The characters are listed in the beginning but I could not reference that chapter each time I questioned, who was that?
Luckily, I have listened to many Westlake stories and love him as an author.
If this had been my first, there would not have been a second.
But since I do so enjoy the Dortmunder series, I will keep up with the goal of listening to all his novels.
Kept plodding through, hoping and hoping it would get interesting....not my kind of story, I guess.
I like Donald Westlake and Thomas Perry but thought I'd try something different.... :(
I've been plugging away hoping and hoping, as in a bad movie, the story will finally gel and grip me....
I do not understand what is going on and think it may have been decipherable
Still slogging away, making it a real challenge to follow on daily walks.
Can't wait to finish or maybe just give up and gone on to the next novel!
I learned about the foibles of man and the overreaching proud men who allowed something awful to go on in their town for years, while doing despicable things themselves.
Had to keep listening though I had finished walking my dogs!
I will look for more of Stuart Woods. Thank you.
As a Jack Reacher fan, I was excited to download and listen to "the Affair" while walking my dogs.... but the reader did such an annoying job of trying to be all the characters, with fake accents and high timbered voices, that I wished he had just READ the book! I kept losing interest because of the sometimes overdone, sometimes missing accents... BUT the Second Son was much better (not so many women's voices) and I thoroughly enjoyed that story.
Had a long 6 hour drive through the desert, but time flew with each new story!
Thoroughly enjoyed this compilation!
