Thought it was a thriller- nope - a political rant
Would you try another book from James P. Hogan and/or Moe Egan?
What was most disappointing about James P. Hogan’s story?
I was actually looking under the new releases for Sci-Fi and Fantasy, saw this book and thought I would give this a try. It was an "anti-tax", "big government is the bogeyman and the root of all evil" rant disguised as a story.
I could take the drivel, to each his own opinion, but it completely corrupted the entire book - the guy couldn't even go to the airport without going off on some tangent about how the government ruined everything.
The characters were extremely one dimensional - no depth, all specifically designed to drive home a point - not to weave a good story. The dialogue was forced (evenly laughably at times - so there was some unexpected enjoyment).
I listened to the end, hoping that the Sci-Fi Fantasy portion would come out, hoping for something amazing at the end to redeem the book, but nothing.
What didn’t you like about Moe Egan’s performance?
The speaker was OK - I actually gave her a two because I couldn't tell if I was laughing at her "male impersonations," or the silly dialog that the males were saying. She may be better in a different book.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Great Book. Really Fantastic Performance
Another really good book by James P. Hogan. But it is the performance by Moe Egan that I really recommend. She is one of the best narraters in the industry. I will read any book that she narrates. She is that good.
