I would have given 2.5 stars. Decent but generic narrative. Perhaps back in the day this was a fast paced action thriller. To me it was dull, trite and overwritten.
I am not sure why people give this book 5 stars (cult followers of Trevanian?). I understand why there are those who give it 1 star (pissed that what is touted is a remarkable book could be so boring).
I would advise you to look elsewhere if you are looking for an entertaining, compelling action novel.
I was unimpressed by this book. The review made me feel like this would be a remarkable work but it was nothing more than ordinary. I like the conclusions that Andy Andrews draws but I cannot say I was utterly impressed. I kind of think they are common sense. The book was exceedingly redundant. A scan of this book at the bookstore would be enough rather than listening to 5.5 hrs.
I do not want to be negative - as I appreciate the enthusiasm and fact that Andy is trying to inspire others. It is fairly manifest that his aim is to actuate others in a positive manner. But the hype for this book is too much and if I had the choice again, I would scan it at the book store and listen to something else.
It is probably about 2.5 stars but I rated it down b/c of too many high ratings.
If you are needing a kick in the pants to get your life in order, this book is about a 4.
Good job, Andy; but sorry I've got to think of others time.
