Honestly, I’m not sure why this audio book exists. It is too stupid to actually be offensive, but so stereotyped that it isn’t funny. I’m not sure what the author was trying to accomplish.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Weinstein parodies the Bond series of spy thrillers brilliantly. What you would expect to be uninteresting, the repetitive "darkly handsome" epithets and the politically incorrectness of "Levantine" bad guys only get funnier as they are relentlessly dragged out again and again. This is something I had not noticed decades ago when the book came out. Weinstein has made some changes in the text, and as I no longer have a copy of the book, I can't compare. It is now a period piece, capturing a bygone era - the age of bored housewives attending Hadassah meetings, Borscht-Belt hospitality, and unbridled machismo.
