    The Western Front dominates our memories of the First World War. Yet a million and half men died in northeast Italy in a war that need never have happened, when Italy declared war on the Habsburg Empire in May 1915. Led by General Luigi Cadorna, the most ruthless of all the Great War commanders, waves of Italian conscripts were sent charging up the limestone hills north of Trieste to be massacred by troops fighting to save their homelands.

    Would you try another book from Mark Thompson and/or Gerard Doyle?

    I possibly would read another work by Mark Thompson but it would very much depend upon the subject matter.

    I had started reading this book in print but it all got to be a bit to much as there was so much content. As an Audible I was able to bite off as much or as little as I wanted at any given time.

  • Going Postal: Discworld, Book 33

    Suddenly, condemned arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig found himself with a noose around his neck and dropping through a trapdoor into...a government job? By all rights, Moist should be meeting his maker rather than being offered a position as postmaster by Lord Vetinari, supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork.

    Would you listen to Going Postal again? Why?

    I have, and will, 're-read' Going Postal. The story flows very well and has the ability to both draw you into the story over an evening or else drip feed the story one chapter at a time.


    What other book might you compare Going Postal to and why?

    As with almost all of the Pratchett works, the more you listen to (or read), the more absorbed you become in Disc World. There are a number of story-lines available in the Disc World series - so pick the line that you wish to follow and go from there.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Briggs – was your favorite?

    Defiantly Von Moist!!
