not bad, not amazing. Somewhere in the middle. The combination of unrealistic conversations coupled with strange delivery by the narrator felt disjointed. maybe better narration may have saved this?

the story, the narrator, everything
if you rate a book on its skillful writing, and its ability to evoke emotion and feeling, whether good or bad, then this is one of the most amazing books you will read. It will haunt me though. The manipulative nature of abuse was disturbing as was the way the victim understood it and so many times while listening I found my fists clenched wanting to punch the guy in the face repeatedly. again this was testament to the writer's ability to take me there. Thank you, I'm moved, disturbed, angry, sympathetic and more. well written

it's scary how much content you have on this man and scarier that he is in a position of such power. We all know someone who is a questionable individual and to whom nothing seems to stick. This one happens to be POTUS

what did I just listen to??

Clearly too cerebral for me. Narrator did a fine job but the stories were draining and felt like they had no closure or clear point.

Might have been good but...

I picked this based on all of the good reviews so gave it a solid 15 chapters before I decided I couldn't go on. The narration was excruciatingly syrupy and reminded me of someone narrating a saucy midday drama on TV. Why the overacting?! No disrespect intended but my ears couldn't take it

Loved it, just didnt want it to end. This is a unique individual who can express his story in a way that makes me think I can be unique too. Think about that!

The other James Clavell books in this series have been well narrated. This one has been butchered. The narrator shouldn't attempt accents and there is very little difference between voices for different characters, making it very difficult to follow. The lack of emotion delivered in some obviously tense parts of the story also kills the fun. Its a bummer because the novel itself is terrific

Great informative content but unfortunately not narrated well and peppered with unnecessary (an unfortunately not funny) jokes after almost every sentence!! Why?! This could have been so good but instead my wife and I got 2 hours in and couldn't listen any longer
