I am very impressed with the Pimsleur language lessons. The format for listening and repeating at 30 minutes a day makes it easy to learn both grammar and vocabulary. Purchasing the lessons from Audible makes these lessons affordable as compared to purchaing anywhere else. I started by doing Lesson 1 on the first day as advised. Then I did Lesson 1 and 2 the second day and then Lessons 1,2, and 3 the third day and so on until I was convinced that I has a lesson totally learned and then I would stop doing it. If a missed a few days I would go back several lessons and do them all.

"If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says ( Publishers Weekly).

What made the experience of listening to The Company the most enjoyable?

The story with it's inclusion of actual historical events over generations was excellent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably, Jack McAuliffe and the Sorcerer

Which scene was your favorite?

This book is too long to pick out a favorite scene. I liked the section about Hungary and the revolution there.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The book constantly stimulated my interest but otherwise it is not a moment kind of book. It is 40+ hours of great CIA vs. KGB stories that travel around the world in Berlin, Washington, Budapest, Moscow and Cuba with intrigue and traitors. Since it is so long and detailed it is a lot of great entertainment.

What did you love best about The Simple Truth?

Kept me interested with a little bit of everything. Murder, Legal, political, and romance.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Slightly. I was worried about who might get murdered next. Also wanted to guess who might be the other bad guy.

What does Jonathan Marosz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good solid narration. Not a distraction as some can be.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes
