I read this thirty years ago and liked it enough to read every succesessive Gaddis book. Hearing it was even better.
This is a very funny book, especially if you like giving some thought to language and speech. Gaddis was a genius; he may ask a little more of the reader than usual, but it's worth it.
Kevin Williamson is not fond of socialists and their friends. He makes it plain just why that is in this book.
Eric Holder and the Justice Deparment -- and by extension the whole Obama administration -- have a stealth agenda, and racial grievance is at the heart of it. It has to be stealthy because the American public would not stand for it if they knew.
J. Christian Adams has the goods on Holder and Co. and he lays out his case in a convincing fashion. As galling at as it is to say it, it all comes down to skin color. (Four more years of this and we could be headed for our own verson of Zimbabwe.)
If you have any interest in the topic -- and you should -- Injustice is a gripping listen. Highly recommended.
Burke has developed interesting and sympathetic characters and can tell a story. I just wish he could overcome his urge to inject politics. Tedious.
I've listened to about 300 Audible titles in the past 8 years and this one is in my Top Ten. Superbly written and superbly read.
From what I can tell, most of Audible's best sellers are junk -- endless vampire drivel, bargeloads of witless thrillers and so forth -- but a few downloads like "Alice" can redeem the whole enterprise.
"Let us not delude ourselves by thinking that there is any substitute for victory."
I began this with little knowledge of Churchill's life; having finished, I think he's an indispensable figure for our times.
Our current president recently returned the bust of Churchill that Great Britain had given the US after 9/11. That's unfortunate... Churchill's resolve and principled will are as valuable now as they were seventy years ago.
Great book, great writer, great man.
