As another reviewer noted, the author shares his "entirely inappropriate" contemporary political views, beginning in the introduction and continuing on and on. He's not very bright for an historian: in 20 years, those views will be either discredited, in which case his book is laughable, or ephemeral, in which case his book is simply irrelevant.
Read some Churchill instead: that man could write good history, and better English.
You know, it's not the most mysterious mystery, and it's not a deep book. But the main character is funny, and the book's read well.
A great throwaway summer read!
..or whatever the term is for an audiobook. Sabatini really knows how to tell a tale, and the narrator is superb at doing the voices. Great download.
