Audiobooks have to grab and keep my interest start to finish when I am driving long distances. The Statement was one of the best at starting a fast paced story and continuing the ride with an absorbing story. The main character was a challenge but the author creates a backstory that at once sets him up as a villain but also makes him a multi-dimentional man so that when he races ahead of his fate, the reader understand his vulnerability.
In general, I listen to real-life adventure stories and biographies. This story is compelling and compares to a true story in its pace and detail.
No. However, he did a great job.
The wife who comes back to her little apartment and finds her husband waiting for her made me cringe for her. She loathes him and all he's done and fears for the little dog she loves, She knows he is capable of demanding something of her and hurting her little Bobby if she doesn't comply.
After I listened to the book, I came across the movie version and was pleasantly surprised at how closely the plot followed the book.
I love Brian Moore and this story is a good one brining out themes of forgiveness, complicity and faith in s story of a hunt for an individual convicted of crimes against humanity
