This is a good account of the events and decisions which have contributed to Africa's hunger issues. Excellent for people new to the various issues affecting hunger and poverty in Africa, and a good summary and refresher course for those who ma know something about it. But it will only be useful if readers/listeners take head of the warnings and recommendations. Well balanced and objective for the most part. Hard to be totally objective when the facts speak so clearly for themselves and reveal the injustices which the developed world has inflicted on Africa.
I've read a few of the Flemming originals and none of them were as well researched and richly described as Jeffery Deaver has done in Carte Blanche. South African's will love the setting in Cape Town. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; good pace,not too cliched, good twists...and all the features that make James Bond such a successful character. Toby Stephens is also very good at recreating the scenes and helping your imagination along through his involved reading style. Highly recommended!
