How refreshing in these twilight times to come across a conservative who knows literature and communicates it wittily. I for one am bored and irritated by the way in which liberal intellectuals have hijacked higher learning. This book is worth listening to many times for its literary insight, apart from its merits in the department of common sense.
Sewell is superb. Cannot understand why his cop series set in Europe was canned - it was brilliant. Anyhoo, he reads Fleming with pazzaz.
Extremely well written, this book would have benefited by a more subtle portrayal of violence, in my opinion.
The worldview portrayed in this book is just too fatalistic and hopeless. But the writing is excellent. Most of it deserves five stars, but that one aspect spoiled it for me.
