Would you try another book from Norman Mailer and/or Stefan Rudnicki?
I would try another Mailer book. Yes I would listen to Rudnicki again.
What could Norman Mailer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Use an editor. there are too many problems with the writing. The big ones are that it is obsessively detailed, the story structure is too complicated, and although the historical information should make this a very interesting spy novel, I felt like I was listening to an obnoxious soap opera.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Stefan Rudnicki did the best he could with this impossilbe story.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Harlots Ghost has been gathering dust on my bookshelf for decades. It's girth combined with slow reading and distractions are my excuses.
This audiobook cut through these pretexts and delivered both a terrific work that otherwise was inaccessible to me, and a needed reminder of how great Mailer was at his art. Highly recommended! It also explains the most current variety of political madness.
