Amazon and Audible make my life simpler and enjoyable!
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.
Margaret Hastings. Probably because so much was taken from her diary and as a women I related more to her.
The crash of the plane and the immediate aftermath.
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.
In the upper two thirds of the books my wife and I have listened to.
Margaret. Her courage and perserverance in the face of disaster, death, isolation, danger, and of course her life threatening injuries. The roll in women in WW 2 was also of interest.
He was able to convey the depth of feelings the survivors experienced better tha the printed word.
The scene where they met and developed a relationship with the natives.
My wife and I lister to your audiobooks daily on an adaptor on our ipod that allows two sets of ear phones to be pluged in. This makes us look forward to our daily 45+ minute walk every day.

Very interesting story about the isolated spots that played front line in WWII. Nice historical piece and drama. A quick listen. I wouldn't call it the 'most incredible' rescue mission - but may be the most unique.
THe narrator's voice was a little monotonic, and no attempt at different voices or inflections. Could have hired a professional narrator to add this dimension.
Really liked the first hand viewpoints of the natives - what they were thinking. This made the book.
If you like this book, also try
I would listen to it again. It has a very compelling story and lots of great personal details about the main characters.
Thorough research that is evident.
It is well written and spoken although I believe he mispronounces the word
Lost in time.

Following the crash the story of survival and the meeting of the natives.
Good story wish I could share it easily with my friends. That is the biggest drawback for your service. I love loaning my books and CD's but it is impossible to really just share the book without signing them up.

None @ this time.
None @ this time.
So new to Audiobooks that I really don't know.
The scene of coming upon the natives that had never been discovered by mankind.
The book made me laugh in places and I was in awe with the level of details provided by the writer about the people involved, the place that the rescue took place.and the on goings behind the scenes. It felt very real and the narration by the author himself made it seem as if he was telling me the whole story in my presence and not just reading words on a page.
