Revenge for WWII war crimes. That's how it all began. Everything that happens in this book happens for that reason. But his exploits in the other movies and books go far beyond anythng that could be related to WWII.
I selected this book because of curiosity and I'm still curious. I agree that the choice of narrator was not the best but it's always interesting to see how a writer tells his or her own story. Harris is better than some in that regard even though the accents are off somewhat.
I found it difficult to follow some of the time changes from chapter to chapter. Sometimes they were minutes. Sometimes they were years.
I listen o audiobooks while I walk so it helped fill some time. It hasn't stimulated any great desire to explore this character any further even though I'm sure a movie will follow. Perhaps a movie will be more compelling than the listen.
My career is now on the downswing and I hope retire in the next five years. I am an African American male. I was a first line procurement manager at a large defense company for 18 years after being a buyer for 16 years. I really wish that I had learned what this book teaches 30 years ago.
The narrator swings into new story lines and examples fairly quickly so you have to pay attention.
The examples have enough depth to make their points without being dragged out.
It would help for Caucasians to read this book to increase their sensitivity to diverse cultures.
i found this to be a well paced, well constructed, and somewhat timely excursion. the characters were believable even though the plot was a bit bizarre.
the author spent a lot of unneccesary time talking about the technical struggles of getting wireless telegraphy to work. that, coupled with the monotone of the reader, made this book a real job to read.
there should have been a lot more focus on the murder and its investigation.
the reader starts my saying that there will be a lot of detail about the science around the murder but very little is really brought forward.
this book should have been 2 hours at the most.
