This ranks at the middle of the bottom half of my library. I liked the story but not enough to chase the series.
honestly the most interesting part of the story is learning the history.
I thought the whole thing was good, but slow.
This is seemingly a slow read, until you realize that all the details count, and then have to go back to review what exactly it was that happened to pick out clues and give insight to the story. I would listen to this again because it was very well done. The research on the time period, the little bit of SyFy, all mixed to tell a great story. This would make an excellent TV series if anyone picks it up. Highly recommend!
The perfect conclusion!
The narrator is very good - great accents and excellent job of keeping track of the various characters' voices.
This is very detailed (with much research), but moves so painfully slow. Why did the author stretch it out into two books? She could (maybe should) have condensed the same content into one book! Again, the details are amazing, and the characters are very interesting. But I warn that the listener may find their eyes glazing over while listening.
Wonderful story . The characters are well developed & endearing .
You also learn so much about what the people in England went through during WWII .
We need another sequel to this series .
This story was dragged out over 2 books. If you want a day by day, bomb by bomb history, then give it a go. The key to the story was the change in dates and they didn't do a good job with the transition of character's time frame because of a person's name change when they change times. If you're reading, pay attention to who is in what year. No spoiler alert needed.
I don't recommend this book. Not enough substance in characterization and story line to require it to have 2 books to tell the story.
Narrator did a good job with the character's age and genders.
Doomsday Book was wonderful. That is why I tried this dillogy.
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
I loved the storyline and the narrator is wonderful!
Eileen,she seemed the most real of them all.
I was gifted this book for a review.I felt I could not do just the last book so I started w/book 1.This is book number 4.I loved this series.The characters were all well written.Katherine Kellgrin was the perfect narrator for all the characters from young child to old man.
In the future,there are Historians who can go back in time to witness events,then return.All Clear is the book that seems to tie all the stories up.There are many Historians dropped in WW2,than they can't find a way to get home.We trek across England where they try to find a 'drop' site so they can come home.It takes us back and forth in time and can get confusing,but it is worth the wait.I recommend this book,and the 3 others very highly.
Beautifully told and neatly wrapped up....told with compelling style. The narration was superb. A must listen if you enjoy good historical fiction.
I almost stopped reading the first book after the first chapters, but decided to though it out. The book became better towards the end.
This second book was quite better and provided some good clarity and closure to items that were very confusing in the first book.
The performance was good, but it I found it very difficult to tell some of the characters apart. The children were some of the toughest ones.
