I understand the whole story is about an urgent timeline, but the book should have had more character development, more romance, more colorful descriptions about the exotic locations, more cultural background described. The basis is laid out for tremendous adventure potential, but the word are mostly desribing the logistics of the journey.
I would definitely see it. The story theme has so much potential, involves so many high adrenalin scenes in exotic locations. I think a movie director would embellish a bit and make a great movie. The book itself hurried through all the possibilities.
Clive always does a great job of the details, the mannerisms, the background knowledge, the cultural interactions of a different era, the action sequences, etc. Love his character development. But this particular story dragged on, the plot made leaps, etc. It was just OK, not one of his best.
One of the top 5 for sure
The plot advanced quickly, and had some interesting twists, and had excellent character development

Kind of monotone, he didn't capturew my attention very well, I found myself fading off and thinking about other things too often.
Maybe, I rarely listen to anything twice because I already know the ending
The high speed car chase from Frisco came alive with the dust and grit and sounds, I was envisioning Clark Gable as the detective, and Anthony Hopkins as the villain, and I was actually envisioning it in technicolor like a movie shot in the 60's.
