Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Entertaining, but a bit too cliche. Great execution on the part of the narrator. Plot was cheesy even for a Bond book.

great book. I'm wish there,was more. 30 hours long, and it went too fast. Every bit as thought inspiring as Snow crash.
