Beautifully written, as always by Frederick Forsyth, as well as nail-bitingly exciting. What more can a reader ask?
Well done Frederick Forsyth. What we have come to expect a great plot, well drawn and believable characters , a long book but enrtertaining in it's entirety. Superb naration that compliments the book in every way
Slow slow slow. I dont know who would enjoy this. I rarely dont finish a book and I just couldnt see devoting any more time to this one
I doubt it.
It wasnt the narrator that was the issue with this book
Just burn the book. This guy took an entire chapter to talk about the connnections and influence in teh British parliament. Soooo boring and could have set up the connections in about 10 pages - instead he devoted an entire chapter - talk about page filling. This is the kind of crap I would do in high school papers.
Dont waste your time.
Too thick on British procedural details near the middle, but brilliant otherwise. Pacing picked up considerably in the second half.
"Worth every minute"
I found this book captivating, all the way through I read the book many years ago listening to it was great. It was well read making you think that there were more that one narrator, Forsyth is a great writer the audio book brings his book to life. I would recommend this book to any body who enjoys action and adventure or thrillers, an excellent listen.
"Another Good Forsyth Book"
Another good Forsyth book. As one who easily gives up on books I found this book kept my attention to the very end. The characters were believable and the story had a good pace to it throughout. The narration was excellent and you were kept on your seat to the very end. I would recommend both author and narrator.
Well, it's right-wing propaganda but the story is engagingly told and even more engagingly read by the excellent David Rintoul, who's especially skilled at transmitting accents.
"The Fourth Protocol"
I liked the story but thought that the passages about the history and constitution of the British labour party were over long over complicated and unnecessarily tedious.
I thought that the book which was just a novel, should have concentrated on entertaining the reader/listener rather that giving a lecture on British politics.
