Good sequel. History we know, told differently.
When the 3 focal young men see the truth, and barbaric conduct, of the Nazis and the communists and are shocked into reality, each from their own naive beliefs.
John Lee does a great job of luring you into the book and keeping you there..
I read the Pilars of the Earth set, and now this set of trilogies. I'm not much into history but have enjoyed his take on these events but creating families whose lives cross from time to time, to show the real impact of life events and how it affected real life. He has brought us into and out of the two world wars by showing what was happening before and after that would have led to these happenings.When each book is ove you want the next one!
Although there were some slow spots, and probably a bunch of stuff that could have been left out, it was worth the listen. I like the Jack Ryan series, and the meat of this was good.
Close, but perhaps a bit more background story into what was going on in the world.
I liked the character development.
yes - I've read others and he develops plots nicely
I always enjoy Scott, and sometimes do my search on what he has narrated. I particularly like his inflections and variety for each character.
I don't like violence in a book - especially personal violence, and would not have bought the book if I knew there would be scenes where people were being tortured.
the dachshund. he was made out to be an intrepid, curious, devoted, smart little guy - just the way wirehaired dachshunds are.
the story seemed a bit dry. maybe it would have been better read.
