I've been a fan of Mr Griffin for many years. Hearing some of my favourite characters brought to life by Eric Dove took my love for these books to a whole new level.
Best book series ever, completely ruined by the absolute worst German pronunciation. Where is the quality control on this one. My ears are bleeding from his mangling of the many German words and place names. Oh yes, a German accent should never sounds like a Russian accent. Not asking for a native German speaker, but holy cow... Just awful.
This booj haa been around aince the early 90s. I am not much of a history buff. So, in the beginning as the author sets up the scene , I admit boredom with lots of yawn. The setup was important to know who. these characters were and representation. I'm glad that I hung in and listened all the way through. There are parts that made me laugh, be frustrated, angry if prejudices implied...erc, etc. This book is worth the read. I will Co tune to read the next booka.
narrating monotonous orders
plot was ok i was repeatedly distracted by the female narrations by a male voice hard to not be distracted at that you must agree?
i liked some of the impersonations some were bad the impersonation of sandy felter was horrible
if your going to do something, do it right, think it thru a bit and don't be cheap. if it was me who wrote it id be disappointed in its audible form.....i was disappointed a listener at many points in the story
Insipid notion guy
Probably. I like W.E.B. Griffjn;s Story
THat perhaps he should have studied the enunciation of German words
No the narrator needs work.
Read it 4 times, listened to it 3x. And the characters come to life . Griffin hooks you in the beginning , makes you feel like your one of the characters and leaves you wanting more.
absolutely loved it, Mr. Dove was superb in his reading, perhaps the best work I have listened to of his. story is fascinating
An engaging story, with likable characters, and lots of details on WW II and army life. OK, that's more than 3 words.
It was like a big satisfying meal - lots of detail, lots of content, I wanted to know what would happen next.
Anybody. Biggest problem was his silly sounding accents. The Germans were indistinguishable from the Russians, and the "hoity-toity" upper class Yanks were embarrassing. Not knowing how to pronounce the formerly Jewish section of Newark called Weequahic is maybe understandable, but calling Port Said "Port Sed" is pretty silly.
I was drawn in by the story right away and stayed engaged, not ready to have it end. Character development was excellent and I felt like I knew, and cared about, these people. Believable. Entertaining.
Pleasant and realistic. Ordinary lives mixed with extraordinary ones. Accurate historical markers and events bring the narrative to life. I was sorry that it ended.
