  • The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

    The Prize recounts the panoramic history of oil, and the struggle for wealth and power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the 20th-century as of the oil industry itself.

    Would you listen to The Prize again? Why?

    I would listen to the Prize again because it is a concise history of middle eastern oil politics. There is much to be said about the middle east, but Yergin stays focused on his topic. The result is a listen which can be repeated without committing days or weeks.

    At first, Lanny Hooch thinks the sign at the gas station is a practical joke: "Unleaded $0.12 per gallon for the Redeemed: $6.66 for everyone else". At McDonald's, he notices crosses on the employees' lapels, and french fries, renamed McScriptures, embossed with Bible verses. And he wonders why everyone calls him "Mr. P". But when he detects changed lyrics in the oldies tunes blaring from his car radio, he realizes something is seriously wrong.

    Freddie says: "Funny and fun"
    "Cheese, with church buddies."
    Overall

    If you're looking for a drawn out Christian conversion story written from an only-slightly-past-adolescent redneck point of view, then this is your book. The plot is beyond silly. The author also seems to think naming the brand name of everything the characters touch adds 'local color.' It doesn't. Even the 8th time. Character's motivations are entirely one dimensional and unrealistic. The entire book is like a bad after school special. Not recommended for anyone with a functioning brain.
