This is the perfect book for a long drive or while doing chores. It's a very funny roimp through the Australian countryside with a bank manager who has just turned fifty and decides to rob his bank branch that just closed and chuck it all. You will laugh out loud. Very enjoyable.
I really enjoyed this novel. In addition to being quite a good suspense story, it has all sorts of great little pieces of sly humor about educational bureaucracy and academic foibles. I loved it.
Wonderfully read, with just the right amount of irony in the narrator's voice. I agree with the other reviewers who compared this to Catch-22, although I found it less bitter. Ironic and wry, yet compassionate in its treatment of war's idiocies.
Fascinating story of small town southern life. Michael Beck is an outstanding reader.
I listened to this more out of curiosity than anything else. The author's theme is preposterous and she provides only unfounded illogical statements.
I thought this was an excellent novel of the spy genre. I continue to be impressed with Scott Brick as a reader who manages to separate characters without substantial differences in voices. At one point a character is coughing and he manages to switch voices and coughing in a very believable manner.
