Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I downloaded this book on a whim, wasn't expecting that much but it turned out to be a gripping read/listen. One of the best audio books I've downloaded.
What other book might you compare Bridge of Spies to and why?
If you like history, particularly the cold war era, then this book would be a great listen. The explanation of the U2 incident was excellent and I learnt a lot.
Have you listened to any of Jonathan Keeble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Great narration, adds a great deal to the book.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Well narrated. Interesting subject. In depth without being boring good read for any cold war fans
Would you consider the audio edition of Bridge of Spies to be better than the print version?
I would but only as I haven't had a chance to read the hardcopy. This has been my commuting companion.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Donovan as he had great nerve and went up against two superpowers. In the first instance he tried to defend Abel or Fischer as we come to know him instead of pretending like the US government wanted him to. Again when he negotiated with Soviets and the with CIA when he wanted priors.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
This is an historic event so I enjoyed the ingenuity shown by Donovan when dealing with bureaucrats.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
This is a wonderful story with a bittersweet ending. The cold war made everyone a little crazy. No one except Donovan came off smelling of Roses.
