    On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the American embassy in Tehran and captured dozens of American hostages, sparking a 444-day ordeal and a quake in global politics still reverberating today. But there's a little-known footnote to the crisis: six Americans escaped. And a midlevel agent named Antonio Mendez devised an ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue them. Armed with foreign film visas, Mendez and an unlikely team of CIA agents and Hollywood insiders traveled to Tehran....

    Debra Garfinkle says: "Better Than the Movie"
    "Fabulous book. I enjoyed every minute of it."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Argo to be better than the print version?

    No comment. I didn't read the printed version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Antonio Mendez because he is a true patriot and exceedingly intelligent.


    What does Dylan Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Background information of world events and emotion in delivery.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I didn't have extreme reaction to this book, but it refreshed my memory on Carter's administration and how bad a President he was. Furthermore, it brought back so many memories of how hostile the Middle East has been toward America for so many, many years.


    Any additional comments?

    Argo was the first audio book that I ever purchased. I couldn't read for a couple of weeks due to eye surgery, therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed the audio-book version.
