This biography details the life and military career of the Commander of United States Forces in Afghanistan, perhaps the most difficult responsibility the American military faces today. Appointed in 2010, Petraeus has had to navigate both the military and political worlds and justify his decisions in the never-ending 24-hour news cycle. Narrator James Lurie’s deep, probing voice establishes the book’s serious tone, and his authoritative reading demands listeners’ attention. He reads without affecting any character voices or much change in pitch, which in small bites can be very informative. Over the course of a long book, though, Lurie can be somewhat dry. He also reads in such a low register that it’s sometimes difficult to hear all of the words. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
