    "All talk no action."

    If your looking for an action book then this is not one. More to do with mission preparation than carrying it out.I felt like I had learn more about accounting and business practices than combat.

    "Forsyth at his best!"

    I have been waiting for this book for years and have not been disappointed.
    The Dogs of War is gripping, immensely enjoyable and excellently narrated by David Rintoul. Worth every penny!
    Mr Forsyth at his best and I would recommend it to anyone.
    Can we have an unabridged recording of the Day of the Jackal please! Pretty please?????

    Story
    "Excellent, slow burning thriller"

    A Classic Forsyth novel, takes its time to build up the setting, story and the characters so you really get involved in what is going on. As ever, excellently well written and researched. David Rintoul's narration is, in my opinion, the best out there and I was gripped after a fairly slow start. By the end I felt that that all the build up was worth it. Not one for action fans but still a very taut and tense book. Very good

    "Great story creating superb visuals in the head"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dogs of War to be better than the print version?

    Superb narration and as I don't have time to "read" having young kids and travelling loads, this was great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dogs of War?

    Great twist at the end and Spanish Harlem!


    What about David Rintoul’s performance did you like?

    David riotoul is a GOD! Surely Richard Burton's love child!
    Such excellent diction and a great voice actor painting a wonderful verbal canvass in the head


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Compelling....

    "The Dogs of War"

    Its an old story, but the message about the self serving power which extreme wealth can bring remains as meaningful today as when it was written.

    "Good story bad narrator"

    Good story, but the narrator David Rintoul spoiled the book for me. He swallows his words as a sentence gets longer and then he starts whispering. Sometimes he speaks so softly as to be 'in-Audible'. Must be the worst performer in my library.

    "As captivating as The Day of the Jackal"
    What did you love best about Dogs of War?

    Forsyth is a mastermind of a political thriller forcing the reader to imagine the unimaginable and believe it. The book is worth every page and as captivating as The Day of the Jackal.
