I can't seem to get past the couple of hours, I am finding the book dry and too "scholarly" for a "common" listener. I find myself having to listen much too hard to follow along. The author seems to make assumptions that the reader already studies history.
Wonderful "read", best time travel story I've listened to. Made me want to take the long way to work while listening in the car.
There are some stories in this book that are speculatory at best. Some "facts" are generalized for the sake of a good story. Do some research of your own before making declarations that you know what really happened in history, based on what is said in this book.
I found the story slow and full of tangents. Some of the social philosophies and spook actions were at times interesting, but I quit listening to it. I found the reader's voice to be a bit droning and character's inflections started sounding the same. The accents were helpful, however, when figuring out who was saying what.
