Kept me on the edge of my seat.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would because the story never got boring. You hope that a "business thriller" like this one doesn't disappoint, especially since they got Mr. Graham (the nest narrater ever) to do it. Well, coming from a listener who loves the bloody stuff like Seal Team Six and the Joe Ledger Series, this one could contend with them. It's not bloody, but the action keeps you interested. It's also an interesting twisting plot about a revolution, a revolt, and a poor cow that brings everyone together. I feel sorry for the cow.
Who was your favorite character and why?
It's easy to say Christian because he's the hero, but I liked the Cuban doctor more. He was brave and strong through the whole thing and had so much to lose, more than Christian.
Which scene was your favorite?
The end when Christian discovers how strong the doctor's wife is, even though her life has been turned upside down. I think it helps his resolve with everything that happened in the book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No because I needed to digest each chapter and twist. It's hard to keep a great book like this straight. i relistened to each chapter, just so I didn't miss anything.
Any additional comments?
This one gives you a good understanding of why men go to war and what they're willing to die for. Christian's a corporate tycoon who had his eyes opened by the people he's helping and it makes him a better man for it. This was a great one.

Enjoyed the series
The four books with Gillette as the main character were enjoyable to listen to. The first book, The Chairman, was clearly the best. This last book, The Successor, was probably the worst of the series. All in all, worth the credits and would recommend the entire series for anyone who enjoyed The Chairman.
