SECRETS OF THE KINGDOM Inside the Story of the Saudi-U.S. Connection

by | Read by Alan Sklar

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

At least WAR OF THE WORLDS was fiction. This scary book about the influence of the House of Saud, the ruling family of Saudi Arabia, on geopolitics is about a real situation. The main point of the book is to show how the Saudi government grew and how its fundamentalist, anti-Semitic Wahabi Muslim ideas nurtured those who became the 9/11 terrorists. Narrator Alan Sklar treats this book as a warning for America and the West. His deep authoritative tone perfectly complements the text, and his precisely placed pauses allow us to digest the details and come back for seconds. Sklar also plays with the ideas, gently satirizing phrases that deserve it, and subtly differentiates characters during conversations.
