    "A useful "Nutshell""

    For the great many who don't know anything more about Afghanistan than the headlines, this is a useful background piece…. with it you'll quickly know more than 90% of the population.

    Story
    "Like reading the phonebook"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is almost a reference guide, not really a 'reading book' and much less a listening experience. Too much information crammed in there.


    What was most disappointing about Timothy Albone and Mark Hudson ’s story?

    Information overload. Both me and my wife have tried listening to this several times, but it's too hard to follow.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narrator was actually pretty good.
