No. Too many other books to read. But I did enjoy it.
Read Big Stone Gap and it was fun to have a continuance.
Italy and her temptations and feelings unraveled.
A good listen.
The saga of Victor Henry and his family throughout WWII was a page turner of their interesting and intriguing happenings while in many countries in so many harrowing situations. It was beautifully written by Herman Wouk, his describing what it must have been like during the war, and more accurately, in the middle of it. Kevin Pariseau read it not only with spot-on accents, but with such feeling for each of the characters, including Hitler, Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt. The history was factual except for the characters who weaved the story together so beautifully. I hated for it to end.
The Winds of War preceded War and Remembrance...both were equally enjoyable in every sense of the senses.
Too many great scenes to single out. The book was one memorable scene after another.
My husband's brother was shot down in Germany, our only recently finding out many more of the circumstances. Our interest in WWII is greater because of that. This book made us realize more vividly what he must have gone through like so many other young men who didn't want to fight...and die.
I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying The Winds of War, then War and Remembrance. It deserves 10 stars.
I didn't read the print version. The audio was superb.
Ezra. She listened to her heart. And the nun who was the cook.
She really put you into the Italian family mode throughout the book. And her voices changed with her characters well. I would have preferred Ezra's voice to be a little higher...or softer. Overall, it was beautifully done.
Laugh, cry, identify with...it had all the elements.
A good saga in a book. A really good listen.
