The amount of detail and insider information in this book is astounding. The author reads his own work in a very entertaining fashion. Absolutely entertaining read. This one made me look forward to my morning workout (that's when I can listen to audible books). I grew up watching old Cary Grant movies on TV and now I know the story behind the making of some of my favorite films. I highly recommend!
I got more than I bargained for on this one! I purchased the book based on the other online review... and I'm so happy I did! If you enjoy books about the inner workings of casinos, gambling or even if are just a fan of books with action, snappy dialogue and characters from all walks of life... then this one is for you! Similar in style to the writings of Janet Evanovich' "Stephanie Plum", John Sandford's Prey series, or, yes, even Elmore Leonard (although most comparisons to the great Leonard pale in comparison). Light, fun, entertaining, and a good use of audible bucks!
I read this one a few years ago and highly recommend. If you liked Ender's Game or Snowcrash... you'll love this one. I don't want to spoil anything about this book by putting details of this intricate plot in my review, but if you enjoy science fiction or mysteries... then this one is for you. Enjoy!
Do you like action? Spy novels? How about History? This is absolutely the best book on Audible. You can not go wrong with this one. What is it about? About 40 hours ... old joke, but this one truly seems shorter. I DID NOT want this one to end. Can't say enough about this book. If you like this one, try "The Sisters" also by Littell. The CIA book to end all CIA books.
