Yes, It's historically accurate as well as entertaining
Victor "Pug" Henry
No, but I intend to add him to my list of outstanding performers. He is a very intelligent narrator, actor and personality. He is thoroughly prepared to introduce you to every charactor in these books. They come alive and you forget that this is one man performing every role.
Years ago, I watched the mini-series on TV. The book is so much better.
the time the protagonists were in Berlin
Warren Henry didn't let personal problems side track him as much
when Capt. Henry met Stalin
no, reading is still great for involving the reader's imagination
the book did, hearing it less so.
pariseau did a very good job. but some place names and jewish/yiddish words were warped, and his reading of women's voices was poor
Riveting. Provocative. Informative.
Excellent reader who inflects characterizations very well.
Natalie and Aaron Jastrow because of their headstrong stupidity and arrogance.
By weaving varying philosophical perspectives and historical analysis throughout his fictional narrative Wouk provides a complex interpretation of WWII. Excellent!
Yes, it's worth listening to multiple times to make sure the history sinks in
Blending history with a story
Victor is the most important character, but FDR's voice was the most fun
Definitely holds your interest
Absolutely! The characters are great. You feel as you know them. I enjoyed the factual history woven into the story describing the everyday person's life in the US building up to WWII. It is written as if in the moment not with hindsight.
Victor "Pug" Henry. He was a man of his time. He had principles, and wanted to get the job done well, whatever it was.
When the Henry's were in Berlin.
US pre WWII
Follow-up with War and Remembrance - you won't regret it!
I was not a fan of historical novels, until this. But now I can't find another historical novel that is as good.
All were realistic and believalbe.
Probably in a couple of years -
Hard to pick just on moment
Like I said overall a good story – well narrated. The only thing I could have done without is the insertion of the “World Empire Lost” While the historical commentary was ok to me this was a distraction from the characters and the story.
