    This is one of the true classics in world legal literature. Written by a master of law and language, it is a primary source book for anyone interested either in legal theory or political science. For the layman, it serves to clarify the very essence of the common law, the cornerstone of our present legal system.

    PHIL says: "For law geeks; not a light read"
    "foundation of law"
    Overall

    unless one has a background in basic law Holmes expatiatied knowledge of the law does get sort of boring, but contains wealth of info.to the legal student not available in recent texts.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    the irony of the present day political insanity engulfing this wonderful USA being presented in a fiction novel or is it what is really occuring in our out of control political environment.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Man?

    All of Rapps actions are indelible


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes i have, and consider Mr. Guidalls performances outstanding


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I feel it would be a travisity to attempt to put this in a film version,one needs to internalize the statement that Vincent Flynn is presenting.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    This wonderful story allowed me to slip back in time and savor the slower pace of what our now hectic life no longer allows.Truly a memorable experience E.J. Vt.
