Great Story - Chinese Pronunciation Needs Work

I loved the story. I lived in Shanghai for 10 years and spent a lot of time on Changle Lu. The author does a great job of describing the street. The only downside is the Narrator's Chinese pronunciation is off - I had check a map to confirm what the road name was as he said it in such a way that sounded like four or five different roads in the area. If you can get past that you'll love the book.

I didn't know a lot about Arthur Ashe and learned a lot. I'm not a tennis fan so preferred the off-court parts of the book.

I listened to this one in about 24-hours. It's got all the elements of a crime thriller and all the details of great journalism.

Well researched, but I feel like I was drowning in information. That made the book hard to follow at times.

This is a great balanced story, definitely worth a listen. A small complaint but the narrator isn't familiar with Canadian English and mispronounced Trois Rivere and toque amongst other words.

This story is more about the Russian spy for MI6. Aldrich Ames feels like an afterthought. Still a decent listen

This is a great listen for someone who likes cultural or musical history. You don't need to listen to the episode of Revisionist History based on this book, but it helps. #audible1
