    This is a sweeping narrative history of the events leading to 9/11, a groundbreaking look at the people and ideas, the terrorist plans, and the Western intelligence failures that culminated in the assault on America. Lawrence Wright's remarkable book is based on five years of research and hundreds of interviews that he conducted in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan, England, France, Germany, Spain, and the United States.

    John says: "Riveting... Sobering... Chilling..."
    "Interesting material, flesh-crawling narration"
    Overall

    The book itself has a great deal of interesting information, but the narration was aggravating at first, and simply unlistenable by the time I had been subjected to it for an hour or so. This narrator is so narcissistically in love with his own voice, and preens so cloyingly, that I had to physically restrain myself from punching the CD player in my car. The guy seems to think that everyone bought this audiobook just to hear his preciously formed diction. The vainglorious presentation calls attention to itself so aggressively that the actual content is simply swamped by the vocal primping.
