Although I have read better Michael Crichton books I believe the listener will be highly entertained and possibly educated about sexual harassment in the workplace. What excites me most is that the book is read by John Lithgow. If you can find Bonfire of The Vanities GET IT. Lithgow plays all characters brilliantly as he does in Disclosure. The story moves well. The characters are 3 dimensional.
Yes. It was a well-crafted story with believable characters.
Meredith Johnson. She was the picture of a woman who felt entitled to take whatever action she felt necessary to achieve her goals.
Everything! He has a talent for voices which makes him an excellent choice for storytelling!
I can't point to any particular part of the story because there were so many aspects of the story that leapt at me during the entire performance!
I would recommend this story to anyone who was interested in michael crichton books!
Book is about office politics and sexual harassment...based on real story. Both heroes and villains are believable. And, it's about high tech 20 years ago. I saw the movie about 10 years ago and thought that I recalled the plot--but it was different than I recall...better. In my opinion, the theme/lesson is that anyone can throw out the sexual harassment flag, is instantly believed, and it shouldn't be so.
When I bought this I failed to realise it was an abridged version. Now I still believe the full version of this book is very good, just as all other Chrichton books, but I could not follow or enjoy the storyline of this abridged version.
Unfortunately I did not see the cover or realise that this was the basis for a movie that I had already seen. Unlike Timeline, this movie was at least as good as the audio book.
