I am very impressed with the Pimsleur language lessons. The format for listening and repeating at 30 minutes a day makes it easy to learn both grammar and vocabulary. Purchasing the lessons from Audible makes these lessons affordable as compared to purchaing anywhere else. I started by doing Lesson 1 on the first day as advised. Then I did Lesson 1 and 2 the second day and then Lessons 1,2, and 3 the third day and so on until I was convinced that I has a lesson totally learned and then I would stop doing it. If a missed a few days I would go back several lessons and do them all.
The story with it's inclusion of actual historical events over generations was excellent.
Probably, Jack McAuliffe and the Sorcerer
This book is too long to pick out a favorite scene. I liked the section about Hungary and the revolution there.
The book constantly stimulated my interest but otherwise it is not a moment kind of book. It is 40+ hours of great CIA vs. KGB stories that travel around the world in Berlin, Washington, Budapest, Moscow and Cuba with intrigue and traitors. Since it is so long and detailed it is a lot of great entertainment.
Kept me interested with a little bit of everything. Murder, Legal, political, and romance.
Slightly. I was worried about who might get murdered next. Also wanted to guess who might be the other bad guy.
Good solid narration. Not a distraction as some can be.
Sure, in a few years when I don't remember the details anymore. It is great entertainment. I love the Gabriel Allons stories.
Nothing in particular. Maybe the way that the bad guy got incorporated into the system.
Many scenes are excellent
