Daniel Silva's books are consistenty excellent and the characters are as real and vivid as ever. My only problem with this audio book was the narrator. Aside from the falsetto used for women's voices which was just irritating, the accents were HORRENDOUS. The Russians sounded like Germans... the Israeli's sounded like quasi-Russians... And the pronunciation was painful for both the russian and the hebrew words. I don't expect it to be perfect, but at least comprehensible. Blue and white in Hebrew is Kachol (Ka-Hol) Ve Lavan - narrator pronounced it Catch-all Velevan. There are many more terrible examples but this one aspect severaly impacted my listening pleasure. Perhaps, being a native speaker of all three languages makes me more sensitive to it but I think purchases should be aware nonetheless.
