The audio quality is so bad that I could not listen to the whole book.
Needed a credible story to engage me, felt like he just jammed his characters into events and then retold history with a degree of bias. By the end I was tired of the story and the characters.
Enjoyed the Berlin Wall coming down and the build up around that - felt engaging
In all the trilogy is a good long listen that starts great and ends poorly. Some of this may be my lack of intimate knowledge in regards to the early content vs the story in the third book that I lived through and in many places his version seemed very different than my understanding. The problem this created is , that I now view the early content as distorted and biased as well and that in the end ruined this series for me. Unlike Pillars that I can listen to again and enjoy, I doubt I will ever come back to this series. It was a like a long visit from relatives, started good and enjoyed the time then by the end glad its over.
I struggled with this book, as I really wanted to like it but parts just seemed to drag. Actually had to fast forward through a few chapters just to keep it moving.
Actually took forever to get to the action. the parts of life in the camp did not add anything to this story for me.
I may be in the minority here but I do not enjoy a Dick Hill book anymore. His constantly whiny female voices are killing me. Add that to his uneven tones and volumes I really will avoid his work for awhile
50/50 here. Good premise but dragged a lot and seemed like more more work than fun in the end.
This is my least favorite Lehane so far, Still a decent listen but seemed to lack the suspense and depth of the others. Without providing a spoiler it was a weaker ending then I have grown to expect from Lehane.
Nice suspense story, well written and enjoyable to follow.
However this may be the worst narrator ever for an audible book, he makes all kinds of noices between sentences that become very annoying. Key was enough volume to hear the story but low enough to minimize his noices.
Not at all what I expected. Instead of a magic fantasy with wizards it was a coming to age story in a different world setting that bored my 12yr old to death. The authors attempt at creating a different world with different words just became frustrating to listen to.
The idea of a post WWII Germany and hunting for evil Nazi's had potential. The book however realized none of it as it rambles through a self reflective narrative that neither tells a story nor develops any characters.
90% of the time the story deals with what the main character is thinking. It never seems to develop into a plot to follow nor enjoy.
This easily is my least favorite Audible download in 3 years. Maybe if you have enjoyed other of this authors books you may enjoy it, but I found it uncompelling and tedious.
