    In this now-classic thriller, he and fellow author J. Frederick George tell a shocking tale with an all-too plausible premise. There's no way William A. Cozzano can lose the upcoming presidential election. He's a likable midwestern governor with one insidious advantage - an advantage provided by a shadowy group of backers.

    Story
    Would you be willing to try another book from Neal Stephenson and J. Frederick George ? Why or why not?

    I would easily read anything that Neal Stephenson writes. I'm in love with his style, convoluted plot lines and fun speculations on culture and technology, but I wonder if maybe this book suffered from too many cooks spoiling the soup. There were moments that I was thrilled by, that I knew without question Stephenson was in the writer's seat...and then a majority that I wasn't. The premise is a good one, especially in our current election season, but somehow it really read like somebody came up with an idea and asked Stephenson to polish it up here and there with his signature style. I've been spotting Mall Concubines, Coupon Sniffers and Economic Roadkill all over the place. That said, I'd be dubious of other books with Stephenson and... in the byline.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator has some great voices he employs to help one keep all the cast of thousands straight, but geeze. SLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW going. Thank you Audible ap for the speed selector.
