More Science than Story

This book is not about dogs
This is a very disappointing book. The author states in the beginning of the book that there are very few books about humans and dogs. He then goes on to write a book about that is NOT about humans and dogs. It is more about life science and anthropology than dogs. You can listen for 15 minutes and never hear dogs mentioned. I do not know what the purpose of the book really is!

A Spy at the Heart of the Third Reich
- By: Lucas Delattre
- Narrated by: Michael Prichard
- Length: 9 hrs and 38 mins
A work of remarkable scholarship that moves with the swift pace of a John le Carre thriller, A Spy at the Heart of the Third Reich is a chilling addition to the literature of espionage. In 1943, a young official named Fritz Kolbe from the German foreign ministry arranged to meet with Allen Dulles, then an OSS officer in Switzerland and later the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
100% very good

The book reads more like a diary than a work of literature. It seemed to be a recitation of events in a rather matter of fact style. It was somewhat interesting, but not really entertaining.
