Unless you think you are going to live forever, this book puts our current financial situation in a clear perspective. Every current politician and member of the Joint Chief of Staff should be required to read this book (assuming they are smart enough to read). David Walker gives us an option on how we can fix this mess before we bury ourselves so deep in the hole and we all have to learn to speak Chinese.
Not a big Sifi fan but interesting story line which makes u think the fact we are not alone in this universe.
The reader did a great job!
Yes, John Lee is great.
Just as good as the earlier ones.
The description of the blacks in the South and their treatment.
Follett has done it again. Character development was outstanding and brought back some early childhood memories and a little bit of a history lesson.
Not written it.
No. The weak story and the main characters totally unrealistic.
Disappointment. Found it hard to actually complete the listen.
Makes you think.....
The ending isn't what you might expect it to be.
The lead character.
No. Predictable plot and story line.
Maybe; did like his accent and reading style.
Story line is dated.
Great listen. Auslander did a terrific job in the read.
Shalom tells his own story with a lot of tongue in cheek humor.
Like Follett's previous books, this one generates great character development and personalities for fictional people who probably really did act and behave the way written in the book. It's easy to see why history evolved the way it did and how Hitler came to power from the ashes and apparent stupidity of WWI.
John Lee, the reader, is fantastic and complete joy to listen to !
Well written with lots of humor! A great listen on our 9 hour driving vacation.
What a fun book to listen to! It's hard to believe that people in the 20's were that gullible. But, given all the TARP money that Washington has handed out, maybe we haven't changed that much. I actually liked Charles Ponzi at the end of the book....
