This is not literature, this is a supplemental reading to a computer game. On a brighter side, there are 'binders' and they are 'full of women.'
It's a descent hard-working horse of a science fiction book. I've read and heard far worse. It doesn't feel like Pratchett. It has no humor, no story, and it's annoyingly preachy. Good for a 6 hours drive - it will keep your awake but you will never get too excited or too carried away.
Be prepared to what an earlier reviewer warned you about - it is painfully cringingly uneven. Do not listen to it when you drive or in any other situation when you can't easily reach your fast forward/ next section button. Every segment is like a small story in its own right, so if you are getting annoyed by one author, skip to the next segment. Unlike that earlier reviewer, I listened to the end and I can tell you that the weaker one is not getting better. Approach it as a real life situation. Not all people are mature, or self-aware, or have writing skills, or melodious voices, but they are not going anywhere and it's up to you to decide if you want to listen, or switch off, or ignore. That much for 'America" and 'Freedom'. There is absolutely nothing about 'sexy', 'bitches', 'love', or 'letters.'
One-dimensional story with cartoonish characters loosely based on real events and real characters. I generally love Frederick Davidson when he is narrating comedy. One of the reasons may be that any non-English-speaking character sounds, sooner or later, like Pepe Le Pew. But this book is not supposed to be a comedy, right? Unless it is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on British xenophobia: Germans, being Western European and Germanic people, are, generally speaking, good guys with few bad apples giving them bad reputation, Jews are single minded sufferers-revenge-seekers, everybody outside Western Europe are evil brutes just because. I laughed out aloud several times, but, in the end, did the author really had to drag the real tragedy of Holocaust into this travesty?
