This is a very long book. Despite the immensity of the task, the narration is faultless..

A real eye opener. Why the hell don't the politicians know all this? And why have the media not told us? fascinating, essential reading.

What an eye-opener

I thought I was quite cynical about world affairs but even I was amazed at the cesspit of corruption and incompetence that this book reveals in detail. Well done the author for exposing this.

The story is a classic but the delivery is very dated and the sound effects are very irritating and laughably out of date. I recommend the book but just not this version.

After the superb 'Dune' I though this was a very disappointing sequel. Nothing much happens and it seems more like a mere episode than a book.
