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?
A lash up of basic Cold War history, any of which could be accessed from Wikipedia without taxing anyone's brain, and a few moronic conspiracy tropes chucked into the mix. The narration just about copes with the porridge like prose, but the Archangel Gabriel couldn't make this sound anything more than average. I watched the truly awful film and thought the source material couldn't possibly be worse, but I was wrong about that. Sententious, pretentious, infantile. A proper con job.

It started ok. But got boring really quickly and kept jumping from different years to people for no reason.
