The narrator's accents leave much to be desired, his Russian accent sounds like Dracula, for example, and I actually couldn't distinguish between his British accent and his Southern accent. The book of course is a classic and once you get used to the bad accents you still love it.
A very well-written story from a great storyteller. The narrator was somewhat irritating. For the most part he was great, his normal voice was pleasant to the ear, his Russian and British accents were fine, but when he would try to do different voices for Americans, it seems like the only accents he could do were American hick and deep southern twang.
The narrator read the book way to fast and the audio wasn't that good, but it was a good story.
J Charles has a good voice when reading in his normal voice but he has no talent effecting accents and varying his voice for different characters. Read the book so u are not distracted by a poor voice performance.
I enjoyed the story and I'd recommend this book to anyone who appreciates military history or just a good military story. No it's not factual but a awesome book never the less.
I like the story but the reader can't pronounce Tarawa. it seems to me that whole while names may be pronounced in different ways,. the names of places and battles should be a able to read correctly.
Maybe. I read the hard copy many years ago, and just listened to the book, so probably not for a while.
When they got the Russian crew off and made it look like Red October sank.
Did a good job with the different voices.
