It is probably one of the books that should be for reading, not listening. The reader is totally boring. I find the story 'too cute' as the author contrives to deliver the plot.
I found the reader a little too boring but the book itself was the best I read/listened to in 2008. It was so good that I had to run out and bought a hard copy. Not that I agree with everything Mr. Bacevich has to say but I feel that he has more right to his opinions than most people do for the reason that he was in the Vietnam war and his son was an Airborne officer who died last year in Iraq.
This is definitely the best book on Genghis Khan even though it is old, it is not outdated and it gives you a complete historical picture of the time. The language is beautiful and the reader's voice reflects the spirit of the book. I am ordering another audio book of Lamb and I want to make sure it is also read by Griffin.
This is a wonderful book because it creates/increases your awareness about the conflict in Darfur. The images in the book are haunting. The book leaves you with the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness because it only reports facts and offers no solution.
Jeff Cummings delivers the story exceptionally well. He first sounds young and naive, then as time goes on, he conveys frustration, sadness, disbelieve and revulsion at all appropriate time.
