overwhelmingly amazing story
Slav, because you know him best as the story is told through his eyes.
Mr. Smith. He nails the American accent.
Yes. I tried my best to do so too. My family took a backseat while I walked around the house with my headphones on.
The best book I've listened to by far. The movie is absolute excrement.
I found this book to be a really good story, but the further along it got the more unbelievable it became for me. After reading this I looked it up to find that there is a lot of controversy surrounding the believability of the story. For some it adds to the story, for me it took away a bit. Either way, a good story, just not the best history story I've found.
Very entertaining. It kept my interest the entire way. It is very hard to believe the story is true, but then strange things happen. Very good book
Yes because it personalizes a period of history that we hear very little about and is extremely touching.
It shows some of the incredible will power and goodness of some people and the incredible lack of feeling and insensitivity of others.
I was very moved by the group's trek through the Gobi Desert an their determination to continue on no matter what.
No, only because I now know what happens but it was well worth reading it the first time.
The description of the individual characters.
I like how John Lee did the various accents of all the characters
This is one of those stories that you never hear about. I am glad that I found it here at Audible. I have told I don't know how many people about this Book and it"s story, It's great. My son found a movie about it on Direct TV and I had to watch it. I loved it but the Book was a little better than the movie. I would Highly Recommend this Book to anyone and everyone.
This is a story you want so much to be 100% true. Regardless it is a great story.
Endurance, hope, will
Endurance and We Die Alone
The scape from the camp
When two of the characters died in the Gobi.
I am always inspired by true stories of survival. There are 3 that I know of that amaze me almost beyond belief. This is one of those!
I've listened to this book twice. It made me wonder if I would have the courage to do what this brave group of people did. The answer is absolutely not. Their journey and mistreatment was beyond belief. Having the courage and strength to continue on with their plan, knowing the consequence if they were caught, was inspiring. My only complaint is the book ended too soon. I want to know what happened later and truly hope there will be another book. In the mean time, I've decided to be grateful and happy every day for what I've been blessed with. I take my hat off to all of the gallant souls who participated in this walk to freedom.
