The Afghan

If you could sum up The Afghan in three words, what would they be?

Totally believable account.

What other book might you compare The Afghan to and why?

The Fist of God. Because The Afghan is a follow on from it.

Have you listened to any of Steven Crossley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Brilliant.

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

Not really, except, I could not stop listening to it. I have read the book three times already.

Any additional comments?

I have read every one of Frederick Forsyth books at least three times each, and I still enjoy them immensely. What a brilliant entertainer. Thank you very much.

Frederick Forsyth at his best.

Where does The Afghan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As a lover of these types of stories, I have found his book not just an entertaining story but also a very useful insight into some of the political background which has caused many of today's problems. This book ranks in my personal top 10 books ever.

Any additional comments?

Very good book. Highly recommended.

Ordinary

This is an ordinary book. It becomes more ordinary when we compare it to The Day of the Jackal or The Odessa File. I felt the research on Afghanistan was incomplete. The story had rings of newspaper clipping based research to it. I do not think Mr. Frosyth is comfortable with history and characters from that part of the world. The plot is surprisingly mediocre. The characters are shallow.
He should stick to writing books set in Europe and plots from that part of the world or use his African experience which would be terribly outdated by now to come up with a story from that part.
Do not bother with this….I do not want you to form a bad opinion about this author. His next book will be better.
