    One of the best selling History titles of 2009. Examining the Second World War on every front, Andrew Roberts asks whether, with a different decision-making process and a different strategy, Hitler’s Axis might even have won. Were those German generals who blamed everything on Hitler after the war correct, or were they merely scapegoating their former Führer once he was safely beyond defending himself?

    "Good Book on the Horror that was WWII"
    Overall

    Best part of the book is the 4th part and the conclusion. The review of the Eastern Front was fantastic. At times it did go into a list of number troops, types of weaponry which did not translate to audio probably be fine in the written form. If you like History this is a well written book that went into great depth on most areas of the war. I will recommend this for my farther I think he will enjoy as well.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    "Exciting well written"
    Overall

    Enjoyed this book very much. Written in a diary fashion which is not done very often so it added some realism to the tale. I would have scored this 4.75 because it does end rather abruptly and that was the only negative to this book. I will probably read / listen to this one again.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    "Authentic Feel"
    Overall

    Story had a realistic feel. Story spent a lot of time developing. Bronson Pinchot did a great job narrating used unique voices for all main characters it really added to the book. Book well worth the credit.

    When CIA operative Malcolm, code-named Condor, discovers his colleagues butchered in a blood-spattered office, he realizes that only an oversight by the assassins has saved his life. He contacts CIA headquarters for help, but when an attempted rendezvous goes wrong, it quickly becomes clear that no one can be trusted.

    I was not sure about this book when I started but by the end it was very enjoyable albeit fairly short. It is a fast and action packed book. I have never seen the movie I may now. Excellent novel if you like the Thiller / Spy genere of books.

    In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

    James says: "wow - a must read"
    "Dramatic Conclusion"
    Overall

    If you like Daemon by the same author you will love the conclusion. Well written and narated. I would recommend to friends if they like this type of novel.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Wow a fantastic book"
    Overall

    It took nearly a month for me to listen to this book. The narrative was wonderfully done by Scott Brick. The world Justin Cronin has written is enthralling detailed. The book was slightly depressing but I think all post apocalyptic / horror / sci-fi book are, aren't they? This book is combination King / Crichton novel. Now that it is over I am sad it had to end. The ending seems to indicate that this will be a series but who knows time will tell.
