Sintesi dell'editore

The Minefield Girl is based on Sofia Ek´s personal experiences as a young woman doing business in Libya while Gaddafi was still at the top of his reign. Her mission was to present Libya to the Western world of big business via the pages of the Wall Street Journal’s magazine SmartMoney. Sofia finds herself facing one setback after another as she learns to navigate Gaddafi’s Libya, where nothing is what it appears to be. She discovers that she is watched at every turn. 

A love affair proves to be both thrilling and dangerous, as she gradually realizes that the country’s most powerful men have ways to control even people’s personal lives. Moving with determination through the corridors of power, consumed by her desire to succeed and to be part of something bigger than herself, Sofia remains blissfully unaware of the minefield she has walked into. 

Sound design by Rich Macar, Buttons NY. 3D spatial audio by VisiSonics.

a spoiled girl's love story

A girl travels to Libya with absolutely zero research on the country beforehand. I was hoping for an exciting book but all I got was a spoiled girls love story.

Wonderful book about alibis

I love this book as I were always curious to know what will happened next. Good book to know about a country’s culture and environment

Glad this was a special offer, free, not worth using a credir

I stuck with the listen, just because I thought the main character might eventually show some mature thinking, but it never happened. Maybe, that was the point of the whole book. She continually boasts of how great she is, how tasteless every situation is, and really doesn't give the listener any reason to admire her accomplishments or abilities. I probably will not ever listen to another book by this author or this narrator as it would be too painful and boring.

Seriously

Pretentious. Naive. Privileged. Self centered. Culturally unaware. This young woman is an example of delusional thinking at its best. If any of this is too be believed as anything near the truth it’s beyond any average sense of first world entitlement. And to top it all she wants her dark haired “love” to take revenge on the evil son of a cruel dictator not because he slaughtered his own people while living a life of unearned luxury which she willingly participated in but because she has sold her self sexually and ethically for her own financial gain. What a great example for young women everywhere. I hung around till the end for some sense of mea culpa or self redemption only to hear her self congratulation at her great victory over exactly what is sadly nothing.

Background noise and music was interesting

At first I was distracted by the background sounds but then I think it definitely accentuated the story line. The music was sometimes louder than I would have liked.

The story itself was surprisingly entertaining and the narration was well done. This was a pleasant listen. Thanks audible!

Very informative

The story was interesting and sometimes frightening. The narrator did not fit well with the story.

not my cup of tea

this was a good listen too. It is hard to really get into a story where you dont particularly like the main character at all. I don't regrett listening to this book but I by no means would recommend this book to anyone.

Lots of weird noises piped in

3D audio means background sounds. Like screeching brakes (terrible in a car) and lots of other horrendous noises.

The story is full of “poor me foreign girl” who tries to scam Libyans and seems to have not done any research on the very country and people she is living with and trying to scam.
