A thoughtful, mature, and unflinching assessment of JPII's papacy would be welcome; Audible could use an alternative to Weigel's various exercises in hagiography. But this book is a bit tawdry. Combining, with a sort of tabloid sensibility, about 50% fact with 30% occasionally strained inference and guesswork, and another 20% dubious gossip this book is probably not worth the serious reader's time. The silly scandal-mongering tone of the book is hardly helped by the narrator, either: John Lee' s arch and almost prissy style exaggerates the book's already considerable problems of tone. Thumbs down.
