The eternal story of Love, War and our place on earth is very well read and a pleasure to listen to.
The use of the Greek names for the Gods and the Heroes may be disconcerting at the beginning but well worth the effort. The narrator loves his subject and knows it well.
This is my best buy.
It is a long book! So it is not to faint hearted.
If there is one thing I will have to criticise the authors about is the fact that they feel they must apologise for their discoveries and their statement, they feel they must preface every word in stating that they are committed to the "survival of Israel", lets we think that they are anti-Semitic bigots, hell raisers, idiots, that they do not realise the importance and the greatness of Israel.
And that fact alone should show us the reach and the power of the lobby, that made sure that a single voice of moderation within the recent administration's foreign policy adviser be rejected on the ground that : "it will give an unbalanced view" to the Middle East policies of the administration.
Lets hope that books like this and others will finally permit an open and franc discussion about the US role and ultimate intrests in that region.
