Sci-Fi, Fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, thrillers with sarcasm are my favorites.
The Brotherhood of War series superbly captures the times, people, and military of from the tail end of WWII through the Vietnam War.
It follows several characters throughout the series (per Wikipedia) which make me very happy as I am rather fond of a few of them at the end of this first book. I enjoy a series where you have a chance to get to know the characters more than most single books can portray by taking them through several years of their lives.
The book also helped instill in me a curiosity for world events of the time especially after reading the Wikipedia entry which lists the real life people some of the characters in the book were based upon.
W.E.B. Griffin's series Presidential Agent & Corps are still my favorite series but I enjoyed the first book of this one enough to download the second so we will see where I am at after,
I am a small business owner, writer and frequent traveler. Audio books are my constant companions
Lieutenants are military officers correct? They fight right? Not in this very disappointing soap opera. An excellent performance is wasted on this book that is overloaded with backstory. This book is hours of character summaries forced into the post WWII context with nothing of value to say about either. The sudden ending comes out of nowhere which is exactly where this book was heading, Glad it is over.
People may think that I am being prude in saying this but can we not curtail the language? This has good history content, good story line, but I would not be able to have my younger daughter listen to this book due to obsessive language. I believe we can have integrity in writing while allowing the story to dictate instead of the shock of words.
narrator did o.k.
most all, I had no idea wher this book was going....
i have be a listener since almost the begining. I have never failed to finish a book. there is a first time for everything. This is it! the worst, no plot, no point, goes no where.... i really tried to get through it I just couldnt do it.....
Finally a serries where the main charictors arent whimps crying about there lot in life. A great story with relatable charictors fighting and living lives we can relate to. lots of action with a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I listened to the first two books nearly non-stop and for the first time ever just downloaded the rest ot the entire series.
This was my first reading of this series and I am definitely going to purchase to rest
Always loved his books whether in book or audio form. His books always rank high up there...
Always a big fan of Craig Lowell..
The whole book, if that can be considered a scene.
World War II story at it's best
I have read everyone of his books more times than I can count and some how there are subtle changes in a few parts of the story. That is the only thing I didn't like about this book in audio form otherwise as always this was a great book and a great story....
YES! The one exception is the narrators inability to pronounce German words.
I spent 7 years in Germany and learned the language in self defense. German in-laws!
It hurts my ears to hear "fur-line" when referring to a young lady. YIKES!
Having read the book some 15 plus years ago I had forgotten much of the story. I am real enjoying the "re telling"
other than the poor German, he is doing an excellent job.
Books worth the money are those biographies about our Founding Fathers. Or THE LONG WALK and/or UNBROKEN Try THE LONG WALK a
It easily and interestingly relates to real life in the military. Not a "thrill" to be found.
"Thrillers" are boring and stupidly implausible.
He was ok.
Cut all music. It detracts and is unneeded.
