    Voices stars the people of Ansul, a town of scholars and traders conquered by the marauding Alds 17 years ago. When poet Orrec arrives in town, however, the people begin to garner the courage to rebel against their overlords.

    I think this could be a good book, but I have tried to listen 3 times and get so lost in the boring, almost monotone reading that I can't get past an hour. I do not think I will try listening again (gifts is about the same)

    "In wartime," Winston Churchill wrote, "truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies." For Britain's counterintelligence operations, this meant finding the unlikeliest agents imaginable - including a history professor named Alfred Vicary.

    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I love Daniel Silva, but I really didn't enjoy this. I just couldn't get into it and had a hard time keeping all the characters straight. Maybe it was where my head was while I was listening, but I was glad when the book was over. I'll give it another try at a later date and maybe change my mind but for now, I don't put it in the same class as Silva's other books.
