Fascinating, well-researched, thoughtful
Hearing the behind the scene stories of cold war events
all of the above
I just finished listening to Stephen Kinzer's extremely well written and researched book about the Dulles Brothers and their place in American history. The book reads like a novel but is full of great research about the 1950's, the cold war and beyond. I was mesmerized by the scope and even- handedness of the author's words. I recommend this book for all who want to have a clearer understanding of a very difficult period in our country's history. This book is a clear and fearless look at our past. The narrator of the book did an excellent job. Llisten to the audio of Stephen Kinzer's book - The Brothers- it's well worth your time.
Listening to The Quality of Mercy was a wonderful experience. The narration is top rate and very authentic
Barry Unsworth is a writer who delves into the rich details of the lives of his characters. One is swept away by the beauty of his narrative. He takes his readers on a journey of great depth which allows one to truly understand human nature. The people populating his work are complex figures at home in their time period. Highly recommended but first read /listen to Sacred Hunger. For some strange reason, Audible does not offer Sacred Hunger in the U.S. - I had to get a British friend to get it for me.
