This one is way outdated. History has moved on since the book was written. Wonderful performance. Too violent!
Set in the early 90's, this isn't old enough to be historical, but old enough to make me impatient. ("...he was even known to take a cellular phone with him to the movies..."). Also, 95% of the books I've listened to that were narrated by George Guidall have been great, but once in a blue moon he reads in a sort of slower, prissy style, and this is one of those. Maybe I've been spoiled by more modern spy thrillers (such as the unsurpassable Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series). I might have loved it if I'd listened to it when it was new.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The premise of this book predates the 2nd Iraq war, and as such requires you to envision a very different outcome than actual historical events.
