I really wanted to love this, but it fell short of my expectations. The story used trite metaphors at times and the narration left something to be desired.
I really liked this book, and the authors' narration. The fact that this very dramatic story had not "survived," meaning I had never heard about this before, and now has been brought to life again was very moving. A terrific listen - highly recommended.
Yes, Nice little piece of history
The detail of the people and events
He made you feel like you were there
The real life
The story wasn't very interesting after the crash.
No, his focus is to melancholy.
There was not enough drama to hold your attention in the middle of the story.
The book was well written and the performance was competent. There was just not enough substance to the story to justify a whole book.
True story of WWII
Vivid discription of plane crash and events leading up to the crash
Yes, he writes well and is a decent reader.
The ending was as expected.
The author did his best to turn a tragic story into a book and did so in excruciating detail. It will be hard to forget but is really not worth remembering.
Usually not a fan of read by the author, but the devotion to the story comes through in the narration.
Probably not, only because it was very well laid out and read the first time. Easy to follow the story and rescue timeline. Very descriptive.
The fact that it is true! The thought of places in this world virtually unexplored during WWII is quite amazing. I only wish that as an audiobook listener we could view the pictures that surely were in the book. Maybe there is and I just don't know how to access them.
Read well and with conviction. Easy to listen to
The crash itself, how anyone survived was a miracle. The struggle of hiking through dense jungle made me exhausted just listening to it
If you like histoy, especially WWII history, you should enjoy this one
Delighted that audio books help me carve out more 'reading' time.
This was an excellent account of an actual crash and rescue during WWII. The narrative was very interesting and also educational. My only complaint is that it ended very abruptly.
