Review: Ice Station Zebra

User Review  - Ned Leffingwell - Goodreads

This book is best described as a Cold War espionage mystery. The writing is full of too much wit for modern audiences. There were some interesting parts but I might recommend the movie instead. Read full review

Review: Ice Station Zebra

User Review  - Jean Farrell - Goodreads

I listened to the audiobook from Audible. It was abridged. Not sure what was missing. I liked it a lot, a classic, cold-war era espionage thriller. They don't write them like that any more. Read full review
