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.
Everything will come right in the end. 😊. I love the time period depicted and the way I see another connection every time I read the book again.
Detailed report (of a) chaotic (time)
At 25+ hours, no! But I did enjoy listening to several hours many consecutive evenings
So I didn't listen to the first of this series, but got the second at a good price so that's why. It did take me a while to figure out enough to enjoy the story fully....about 6 hours.
I will say that the focus of this book was the chaotic scene of the Blitz .....there is much description of the rapid unfolding of events and resulting confusion. There was a little too much repetition of this kind thing: "Polly saw a man from the behind and thought it was so-and-so ....oh dear! If it is him then ....such-and-such-a-consequence ....then the man turned around and it wasn't him after all."
There is no fowl language, sex or interpersonal violence ....which was refreshing....I very much enjoyed it for these reasons alone!
Gave me a new understanding of a time I haven't studied much and I was inspired to look up and study more of what was touched on in the story line.
Has a redemptive ending!
