    Tower of Basel is the first investigative history of the world’s most secretive global financial institution. Based on extensive archival research in Switzerland, Britain, and the United States, and in-depth interviews with key decision-makers including Paul Volcker, the former chairman of the US Federal Reserve; Sir Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England; and former senior Bank for International Settlements managers and officials.

    Richard J. Peach says: "Eye Opening"
    "Why is the narrator putting on different accents?"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tower of Basel to be better than the print version?

    Whose idea was that?

    This is not a novel or a play.
    It's annoying and unecessary to have him put on French, German and US accents.
    Will he talk like a woman if quoting one?


    What didn’t you like about John Mawson’s performance?

    It is not him, it's the moron who told him him to put on different accents.
    His normal voice is great.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book so far, aprt from the idiotic accent idea.

    Story

    In this episode: Karl harks back to halcyon days; Ritzy crackers; the archetypal Englishman; weddings; Karl on cafe culture; help the aged; Ricky's royal etiquette; dung beetles and dead badgers; fair play and the crossbow; dragon slaying and tongue-grabbing; Steve's spectacles; and Ricky reads a Brooke.

    A.P. says: "Hilarious"
    "Not funny anymore"
    Overall

    Its in decline, unfortunately Carl has lost the innocence that made his so engaging and brilliant. He has got full of himself in a way that exposes the mean-spirited sides of his personality.
    Now its just more London media, who are very satisfied with themselves, yapping.
