-attention to detail
-well paced and well written material
He lisps and sputters his way through his reading...
I don't know have print version, but certainly the narrator was wonderful!
There are no "characters" here... This is all REAL historical figures. I guess the writer is my favorite guy, obviously, as he figures most heavily in the story...
He has such a wonderful narrator's voice - passionate, yet soft!
It made me sigh - sigh at the stupidity of European Continental policy before WWII... when so many signs pointed to war, they took the then seemingly "easy" way out... doing nothing.
It's a very slow moving book, and I felt comfortable being able to pop in and out as I wished.
The most? - The WWII intelligence work.
The least? - The chapters and chapters of math and logic theory...
Could have been more in keeping with the author's compassion...
So much more than you can even imagine!
I love this book, but I would probably have edited it down by half...
If the book/recording had stopped about 1 hour before it ended, it had a descent ending. But then it just spiraled out of control. It wasn't a good book to begin with, but then during the last hour it really spun out of control...
Probably... not written it. However, it was mildly entertaining. I could have gone without the masturbation scene, no offense but... eww... it did NOT fit into the story.
He does good voices...
seems like a high school student wrote this book, and then put it into a blender... too many CATCH PHRASES!
Yes. It's a very easy to understand yet detailed work...
There is no ending as such... Just a very slow and long burning fire!
The scenes in Canada...
Just Who is this Man in Moscow!?
Would have been better without the "Reagan knew what he was doing all along and the SDI was a good use of money...
The ending!? This is a collection of parables, not a fictional story...
Louis XIV getting rid of Nicolas Fouquet.
maybe a TV show, but it would have to be on PBS
The "laws" he mentions are over-broad, generalized, and very contradictory.
The style is very pompous, but I liked that aspect of it, ironically.
However, in terms of the historical accuracy of this author's analyses, I would say he's very much trying to push square pegs into round holes...
It seems like an extremely long book when you first start, but it flies by like a good movie. I found this book enthralling.
This question is clearly meant for works of fiction. This is a book of history, not fiction. However, I think the author did manage to tell this important history in a very narrative and exciting way.
I have not.
History happens in the span of a minute.
Don't go through the whole book in one sitting. Split it up over a month or two, peppered with other works about WWII.
He was far too manly and brash to read this book...
Yes. It ends too abruptly.
Yes. It's amazingly well written and harrowing in its detail of personal suffering and overcoming of that suffering.
The scenes of the author riding on a bus in Bucharest and seeing men hanging on meat hooks in the town square... just so scary!
No. It's too much. It's very dark at times.
LOVE the accent!
Yes. I'd listen again. Though no right away. It was a bit heavy and dark at times. The chapters on the Beatles White Album were enough to drive almost anyone mad!
The Stranger Besides Me by Anne Rule... intimate portraits of a serial killer...
People who enjoy fantasy.
Not committed a blatant act of fraud and not written a work of fiction!
did his best
