Too much information, Too many places, Too many issues. While the story was interesting, I had to push myself to finish the book.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
The place and time were fascinating but the narration was so slow and halting that I had to speed it up to 1.25 and 1.50. I have never before adjusted the speed of an Audible book.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The setting was fascinating, particularly the Asian section of the story. Jack's spy maneuverings were good, too. The least interesting was the suffragette woman, Kaitlyn. I found her to be annoying, but it may have been the narrator's interpretation of her voice.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gildart Jackson?
I can think of a dozen. All the British spy novel narrators that I've heard on Audibles have been fantastic. This was awful.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jack of Spies?
All the love-making is tedious. The first time, okay, but then get to the spy story!
Any additional comments?
I wouldn't buy another narrated by the same person. His voice is unsuitable for this. It was so slow I thought there had to have been a technical glitch.
