This is the way we should teach & learn history. Not just painless, but enjoyable.
I haven't, but look forward to hearing more from her.
No, too long.
I'd say don't bother. The narration is great, the story doesn't go anywhere, and the characters give occasional long monologues on the nature of man.
Yes. I enjoy history when it comes alive. This made it very real and gave insights into the various personalities involved.
Yes. She was very pleasant to listen to.
My husband & I listen over & over. Lots of wonderful information. We have recommended it to our adult children and others.

History can be so interesting. Why don't we teach it to the kids this way?
There was some repetition that was not necessary. Good information and examples from the news and public figures.

Yes. Intricate plot.
Bloomquist had to be my favorite.
Not a chance. Way too long for one sitting. It was nice to savor it over time.

Yes. It took me in and I didn't want to stop until it was over.
The girl. She was well developed and unpredictable.
No, I haven't. But he did a great job. He was an integral part of the great experience.
It did make me laugh in a few places. No crying. But gripping, I would say.
Can't wait to hear books 2 & 3 of the trilogy.
I couldn't finish the chapter. I seem to be tired of people getting into dumb situations.
The girl passed her engagement ring around in a crowd and was surprised when it disappeared.
The 2nd Steig Larsen.
