Immersive and Interesting
Yes, and I have. You can see Mr.Lonergan's complete understanding of the subject matter (germ warfare) from the beginning.
The crossing into Georgia from Russia.
His voices for the computers and his Slavic accents were wonderful, but my favorite was Robert Cook. I could feel his life.
