What a beautifully written book. I am sorry that the same cannot be said about the reader. Why a pro like Mr. Harris is at writing would not use a pro reading his book is a mystery. He wouldn't use his gardner to cut his hair or his publisher to write his book, so why does he think he is an expert out of his field? If this book is reread by a really good reader, I would listen to it again.
the author might be an award-winning journalist, but here he is trying to write a travelog, a spy novel and give us the information on the Bilderbergs. Almost drove me crazy waiting for the information in between the useless dialog. This book could have been so much better.
I have long been a Ken Follett fan but have to wonder if he wrote this just for the money or if he really wanted to shape the readers' view of what was going on during that period. Readers would be much better off listening to Eye of the Needle and listening to a non-fictional book on that period.
It is too bad the description doesn't tell us this is a screed for animal rights. I tried to stomach it out, but finally gave up.
Well written and I have to agree with reviewer that authors did their best keeping it pretty unbiased. My problem was with the reader's mispronounciation of many words and names of places. I used to rent books from Recorded Books. One of their readers, Mike Hammer, made it a point to find out how to pronounce names and places he wasn't sure of. I know this may sound petty, but readers are supposed to be professional and if that means doing a little research, do it.
