The story is great and the narration by Mr. Hecht is enjoyable. My only complaint is that the editing was quite noticable due to a clear distinction in voices when ever something needed to be added or corrected. I found the voice over to be a bit distracting--but don't let that stop you from missting a good story.

Just read the first half
Loved the overall idea of this book more than the execution. The construction of the Eiffel Tower is, in and of itself, an unbelieveable feat, and could easily have made a compelling book on its own. Placing the iconic structure in the mileux of its day, with the World's Fair and Impressionism and the advent of electricity sounds good but ended up making the book repetetive and twice as long as it needed to be. My advice: read the first half, particularly up to the point where the tower is built, then move on to another book. If we hadn't been trapped in a car driving home from Atlanta while listening to this as an audio book, I don't think we would have ever finished it.
