This is a strainge book! Interesting story line (though it jumps around a lot), and you will have to listen to it 3 or 4 time in order to get the idea. Most writers do not like his dry sense of humor or his basic writing style, but then again, most writers arn't making the millions he is making off his novels (so I guess he is doing something right). All in all, I would get this book just to say that you read it (since everyone else has), but it is not going to leave you astounded. It scores a 4 out of 5 in readibility but a average 3 on the good old plot-o-meter!
I was real nervous about purchasing this book due to the issues everyone seems to have with the narrator. I took a chance, and let me tell you...GREAT BOOK!!!!! The narrator is not as nearly as bad as everyone is making him out to be. He is not the best, but I followed him without a problem and he DEFINITELY did not ruin the story! (It's only a book people! Being just a little to picky!) The story was compelling, the plot got better and better with every moment and the there was never a dull point. If you like military or spy novels, this is the book for you!
