As with any Patrick Robinson books I've listened to, this was full of military themes and personnel, and a dastardly plot by evil doers to commit mischief on the US of A. Not being a right wing conservative who thinks Dick Cheney walks on water, the far right political bent can be a little tedious. But the story telling is terrific, and his characters, while rather one-sided, always leave you rooting for the good guys. One my favorite lines from his books is the Navy Seals philosophy that there are few problems in the world that cannot be solved with enough high explosive. If you like action and military themes, you'll enjoy this (or any other) Patrick Robinson book.
I love Raymond Feist's books and was really looking forward to hearing this recorded version. Unfortunately, the narrator spoiled the story. Other reviewers have accurately detailed the narrators shortfalls. Suffice to say this is a recorded version to skip.
The narrator spoke to quickly. There was minimal difference in his voice between characters male or female, and as another reviewer commented, when there was a difference it was forced making it even worse. I have nothing positive to say about this narrator's performance. It ruined the story for me and for a number of other reviewers. A casting director somewhere made a terrible choice.

A hilarious retelling of the bible, updated for the 21rst century.
Perfect for those of us who have never read the bible, nor had any inclination to.
I usually find Dave Berry's articles and short blurbs amusing, only occassionally reading it and not laughing. After half an hour of listening to this and not laughing once, I gave it up. Perhaps it's just not my sense of humor, but it was a disappointment.
