If you are a fan of spy-hunt novels, this is definitely a good one. Keep in mind it was written a few decades ago, so some of the content is going to be dated. That should not keep you from enjoying this novel.
This is still a classic story. Fantastic action and espionage sequences.
The only complaint is the number of 'Southern U.S.' accents in the performance: they all sound like Forrest Gump.
I definitely recommend giving this audiobook a listen.
This is a classic story that stands the test of time. This is an adventure and a story about the courage to do what's right in the face of overwhelming odds. But, it is also definitely a story about strength of friendship.
If you like political thrillers, this is a good one. The series continues from where Imperium left off and leaves me excited for the next installment in the series.
The author provides a lot of detail from historical names and places in the later days of Roman history. Much better than the average historical fiction novels.
This is a great story about the evolution of the English language. The author clearly loves the language and revels in its adaptability and flexibility.
He reviews major players that have influenced the language: Tyndale, Wycliffe, King James, Shakespeare.
If you are interested in understanding the English Language, then this is definitely a worthwhile purchase.
An excellent story of a 'reluctant' lawyer-politician in ancient Rome, similar to John Adams from American History.
The main character seems to be continually on the verge of defeat only to pull off a masterful recovery.
We are given foreshadowing hints that these victories are leading to a dark, and possibly destructive, path.
Don't bother unless you want to be angry. I listened to the first five minutes and the only content was profanity-laced tirades against everyone around the author.
Perhaps there are some redeemding moments later in the book, but I could not make it through the self-loathing and seething hate evinced in the first few minutes.
This isn't a book about the CIA as much as it is a book about the things that make the author angry.
