When her returned home and his world had changed.
I have and he is great.
The name is perfect.
Heart-rending, passionate, gritty
Paul, through whose eyes the whole story unfolds
Muller brings character and depth to this work. He makes it as believable as if he were there
Was really looking forward to reading this but found the audio quality was very poor...actually I think it was the narrator too, emphasizing some parts in a clear voice then switching to a whisper and the variance was just too much. I had to quickly turn up or down the sound to account for this difference.
First off, the performance would have to be immeasurably better. Secondly, I found no satisfaction in the narrative. The book wanders fairly aimlessly through a long arc of time. There are stretches that gloss over months, then stretches that linger monotonously on a few days. I could discern no reason nor rhythm to this. I would have hoped for more resolution, more point, some conclusion to the narrative. Overall, disappointing.
The performance is so bad it is completely distracting. The reading is flat and monotonous. There is no modulation in tone or fluctuation in emotion to correlate with the events of the book. Everything is read with an overbearing sense of gravitas with no regard to what is actually being described. I found that incredibly tedious.
The narrator is outstanding and really gets the mood of what it is to be in such a deadly and desolate war
Real sadness and empathy for the characters
