Witty, funny, satirical, topical, intelligent as always. Even though I'm not particularly interested in American military goings-on I read/listen to everything Ben writes and enjoyed this one as much as all the others. Never found a subject he can't make entertaining.
Narration not great though - the male lead sounded nothing but sinister in a kind of camp,comedy fake way - kept reminding me of the actor who plays the guy in the wheelchair on Family Guy.

loved it full of surprises right to the very end...ready for a sequel? Top story beautifully told by Michael Malony. Ben Elton is very readable and even better to listen to. 9/10.
As ever this is a tightly pulled together piece of work by Ben Elton; comedy, observation and politics in equal measures. Feels rather like a draught stageplay, which keeps the structure especially tight.
Anyway, the main reason i am prompted to submit a review (something not done before), was that the narration was outstanding. The very different voices were wonderful without veering into stagey. If you like clearly delineated voices this is one for you (If this is your thing can i recommend Mark Gattiss's brilliant OTT reading of his novel 'The Vesuvius Club', which is still my favourite in this respect.)
