    Boom! One minute it was Ike and the man in the grey flannel suit, and the next minute it was time to "turn on, tune in, drop out". While Americans were walking on the moon, Americans were dying in Vietnam. Nothing was beyond question, and there were far fewer answers than before.

    Overall

    This is my favorite book of all time. Only partialy because I am a boomer but because it explained to my the why of so many things from my childhood. News that I was to young to understand when it happend and was to new for history books. I grew up with Brokaw on the news and have always found his voice comforthing. Listening to him read the book was listening to him tell a story. It does not have the feel of being read to. There needs to be more books like this out there. Telling us the whys and how items became history

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    If you could sum up The Silkworm in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping. Detailed. Unexpected.


    What other book might you compare The Silkworm to and why?

    Agatha Christie. Sherlock Holmes. But their are more details that you miss the first time and require a second listen.


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

    The British accent adds to the experience.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I wanted to listen to this in one setting but it is also book I want to listen to again already and just finished last night.
