Similar to the Dan Brown book. The Ark contains fairly cinematic writing. You can see how this could be made into a movie either for TV of the theater. The tale is engaging and contains some of the trademark trivia minutiae that Dan Brown wows us with in his books. If you are fan of the Dan Brown books, you will like this. If you are not, it's still worth a listen.
An engaging history lesson on stealth technology, the arms race and the impact on Southern Nevada. The book resurrects the Cold War through declassified records and personal accounts. We all know Area 51 for its supposed alien mystique. What we do not know if the main focus of Area 51 was (or is) the development, testing and installation of stealth technology for supersonic aircraft. The book is fascinating. What's more - if you happen be from Southern Nevada, it has wonderful accounts of the impact of Area 51 on the region. Well worth the listen.
The story is outlandish and adeptly done with two separate narrations. Moreover, I think this is a stunt format, whereby the two authors separately wrote their parts. They also do the narration.
What's funny about this book? The story starts as a commonplace squabble between two polar opposite characters. Hilarity ensues when they unwittingly go about changing the world through no fault of their own.
Barry has written some funny novels. This is a good companion to his work.
