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.
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.
