After reading Killer Angels for the second time, I went right to my computer for the purpose of finding a way to write Michael Shaara and thank him for writing this amazing book. It was then I found out he was dead, never having enjoyed the success he deserved. This recording was completely enjoyable. Listening to the book provided a wonderfully different experience. You will love it. You will love the "killer angels" who fought the battle. Your heart will break for both sides. Thank you Michael Shaara.
One of the best books I have read (or listened to). It's among the list of books that I will read every year. The narration by Stephen Hoye brings Shaara's account of the battle of Gettysburg to life--beautifully done. Every man should thoroughly understand what men did in our country in the early 1860s--this book is an excellent introduction to the Civil War.
Tell us about yourself! Lifelong reader and passionate pursuer of knowledge. I love Audible because I never have to stop reading.
I have experienced this book in print and now, through Audible.It is impressive in both mediums, but the reader here is exceptional, and brings all of these men, and the agonies of those three momentous days to light.
If you have any interest at all in your nation's history, you should not miss this Pulitzer prize winning novel. It is sublime.
This was one of those books that I couldn't put down. I found I got attached to many of the people in the book. A side of Robert E Lee I never new.
I was a bit hesitant to listen as I thought it may be a boring history book. not at all. the story is well told and has you connecting with the characters from both sides. I have been to Gettysburg before but to be honest had little clue of what went on there and the importance.
To history buffs and extreme fans of the civil war. Little too much detail for this moderately interested listener.
lovely writing and wonderful history. must go to Gettysburg after listening to the book. but the glorification of war is oddly disquieting in this age of fe
