While I found this book somewhat interesting, I do not understand why the publisher claims that the Anderson case 'defined his career'. The sideline plots (completely unrelated to the case) gives yet another review of how the Republica party came to be.
This is my all-time favorite Stephen King book! I have read every one he has published under his own name, and many of the Bachman Books, and Under The Dome is, without a doubt, my favorite!
Another Great book from Mr. King. The only think keeping me from giving this 5 stars is the naration could be better.
I don't know what some people are complaining about; Frank Muller is one of the best narrators I've listened to, and he doesn't let us down in this great novel.
This has to be one of the most annoying narrators I've listened to all the way through. I can handle mono-tone and other quirks, but this guy doesn't know how to pronounce MANY simple words/names. i.e. SAC ("Sack"; for Special Agent in Charge), Ickes (Harold Ickes, pronounced Ick-ees, has been in democratic administrations from FDR to Clinton), and many more.
Well, after over a year of listening to audible, I finally decided to write a review... As another review mentioned, this is two stories in one. The secondary story, discussing the situation between Tito and Milosevic, and the American handling of Milosevic is truly a story in itself. I have always been an "American History" buff, but now I find myself looking for more on this episode in world history. This book is a great listen, the narration is above average, and the story(s) grab your attention right from the start.
As some previous reviews have stated, much of the material in this book is well known, and not new. What makes this book so great is how he ties so many pieces of history together in an explination of how we have arrived in our current global economic state. I found the examples and case studies very informatitive. Only one correction - a camshaft does not control the movement of pistons in an engine (no, that doesn't affect the material whatsoever).
