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.
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.
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.
