With such a classic plotline—charismatic leader attracts loyal follower and then becomes paranoid and obsessed with power—it’s surprising that this audiobook takes so long to engage. The first half is slow to launch, and the measured, earnest reading provided by Erik Davies doesn’t click into gear until he has something interesting to talk about: the Afghan papers and the arrest of Bradley Manning. But just as the author, one of the original members of WikiLeaks, wears only half of the WikiLeaks logo tattooed on his back, the listener may feel that only half the story is being told and that “D” (as the author is known in WikiLeaks chat rooms) is hesitant spill all the beans. Don’t expect a tell-all. This is a decent “tell-some.” R.W.S. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
