Most boring W.E.B. Griffin listen ever. The incessant message traffic while OK for a print book was exasperating for an audio book. With a print book you could gloss over the message headings with an audio book you had to listen to each and every message heading about 66 aggravating times.
I kept waiting for it to get better but ended up just wanting it to end. Worst Griffin book to date.
The incessant emails and redundant dialog will drive you crazy. The whole plot would have difficulty filling a magazine article let alone an entire book.
I bought this book by mistake thinking I had selected another. However I listened to it anyway and that was my second mistake...I won't make a third.
Apparently the original book was redacted and in the audible version they have chosen to use an annoying tone where the redacted material exists. I would never have bought the audible book if I had been aware of this. Especially since the redacted material in most cases is public information. The story is OK but be prepared to be very, very aggravated!
Having been a career sailor I went through the EMP hardening drill of the 80's, since that time I've heard very little about it. I think it deserves another hard look and perhaps a little preparation.
Great read! Howard Wasdin is a true hero that doesn't forget his friends like his Uncle Earl...another unsung American Hero!
I loved the premise but hated the narrative...I found myself screaming "Just get to the point!" The book could have been half as long.
