This is quite an unusual book.It is about a woman named Martha Mason who spent @ 50 years in an iron lung after coming down with Polio in the early 50"s . She lived in a in a little town in the south. She graduated from college,ran a book discussion group and hosted dinners all while confined to an iron lung in her home. Her selfless loving father and mother supported her in a lifetime of achievement. The narration was perfect.Do not miss this inspiring life story.
I already knew I liked Charles Martin. He is a very good writer. However when I started listening to "Unwritten" I almost lost interest after the first half hour or so.( Too many fishing references). Because I usually love his stories I continued on. I am so glad I did. This book really went over the top. The characters story were very different and you were not sure where the plot was going to go. The narrator was excellent. He really made you feel as if you were there watching in the background . I absolutely loved Sunday/Peter what a man! If you have never read Charles Martin this is where to start!
A very interesting documentation of Operation Paperclip and what lies hidden behind the American Scientist Programs in post war America. The systematic cover-up of facts that dozens if not hundreds of Americans took part in , to bring NAZI WAR CRIMINALS to America to further our Space and Chemical Weapons Programs .
How some in the Military whitewashed the Nazi pasts of dozens of Doctors and Scientists allowing them to live the "American Dream", become respected members of the space pioneer elite and escape punishment for their atrocities during WW2.
The narration (by the author)was not as good as a professional but a fascinating story.
This is a good back story to the book "Sarah" Cottage. I liked the story but the narrator was annoying especially when she did the children's voices. I would not look for another book by this person. Because I Love DE Stevenson I put up with the inferior narration.
I really enjoyed this back story about Bletchley Park and the people who worked there.
The book is a childish attempt to give us a history lesson on WW2. Terrible dialogue,
and a silly plot. I did not even finish it. No more Susan MacNeal for me.
I really enjoyed this book about the women involved in the development of the Atomic Bomb in Oak Ridge Tennessee. What it was like to work in a government run "secret city"
which at its peak held over 100,00 people who were all involved in "the Manhattan Project"
Another fun and funny book by Fannie Flagg. Full of crazy characters and an interwoven plot that takes place in the present and in the past about women flyers and a forgotten piece of WW 2 history .
This story is a continuation of "Christmas in Cornwall" with some new characters and
expansion of the story in the first book. As Always Marcia Willett's story is a gem. She resembles Rosamunde Pilcher in her writing style.
. So if you like Pilcher you will love Marcia Willett. I only wish there were MORE Marcia Willet novels available at Audible I would get every one
The narration was excellent. Perfect dictation made listening a pleasure.
At First I was not impressed with the story. The authors family is clearly dysfunctional.
It was hard to be sympathetic. The continuity was not the best. However the information
about our Nuclear program in Colorado was unbelievable . Rocky Flats was and IS one of the HOTTEST areas in the United States with plutonium pollution. Over all the information is compelling and a good "read" The narrator is very good.
This is a sequel to "Gerald and Elizabeth" it also has characters from "Charlotte Fairlie"
Good character development and a fine narration. A little too much talk about deer stalking and killing .That is why I gave it one less star than my usual 5 stars for other D E Stevenson stories. Still well worth a listen. Current authors cannot match some of the old ones for consistently good books. More DE Stevenson Please!
