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
I've always had more love for reading than time for it. Now Audible lets me read while I drive, cook, garden, clean, workout, etc. I love it

The story kept me intrigued all the way through this book. I was amazed at the rescue these very brave men
I was in awe of these real people. Fascinated with the natives living in the valley. Made me do more research on New Guinea. I wasn't even sure where exactly it was located before this book.
This was one of the best non-fiction audiobooks I've listened to! It really kept my interest through the full book. The author gives a lot of historical background to the story, and I learned a lot about the Pacific War and New Guinea. Highly recommend!
This book would rank in the top quarter of audiobooks that I have listened to so far.

A well researched book about this island nation , its people,history and topography
the initial contact with the natives and Maggie's relationship with the
A well; told story whose only fault was presenting too much background material at times.
It's the story of good men and women locked in a desperate struggle far away from their homes.
These are some of the real people of our greatest generation.
Yes. It was impossible to turn off!
This is a fantastic true story that will leave the listener wanting the story to go on and on. You will find yourself intertwined in the lives of these brave men and women and if you are American you will be proud to be so even more after this book! Well done!
