Tried to listen to this book. It is very slow and ponderous with the dialogue hard to understand. Whilst I did not expect to hear the "Queen's English"spoken, I did expect that after some time I might be able to decipher the story as I would become accustomed to the voices. No such luck. My advice is unless you are a person from the back woods, don't buy this book.
The story of this wonderful animal made great listening.
Diction was clear and made for easy listening
When the re-mounts were taken out and shot.
A brilliant story well-told. if they gave Victoria Crosses to animal, Bill would have won several.
It was reasonably well-spent
Bill The Bastard
The way in which the distances were always converted to imperial measurements for those who do not think metric was annoying. I don't think that anyone who took the time to listen to the book would have needed the distance conversion.
Perhaps. Don't know
You really need a map to appreciate the locations and where the battles occurred.
The story flowed well and was easy to follow. It engaged the listener and was difficult to bring to a stop.
Brings life and humanity to Temperance Brennan
I have read this book. It is a good read, but one on which you must concentrate. The Audible version is most difficult to follow when you are driving. My suggestion: buy the book
Disappointment at my inability to follow the story
Had I been able to download it to my Garmin GPS - it was too big a file so could not listen to the book at all.
The book was too hard to follow
Given the reader a list to the characters as I could not understand who was who.
He did not
Most of them
The book was too difficult to follow and quite convoluted. I cannot recommend the audio version.
Don't know, lost interest.
A very ponderous book that is too difficult to follow for those of us not born in the USA.
The suspense and the main character's trials and tribulations.
Yes, you never knew what was going to happen to him next.
Don't know, I'm not a great one for such things.
An excellent book. Well worth a listen,
This is an extremely moving book that describes the horrors experienced by Allied Servicemen captured by the Japanese. It is easy to understand why so many Australian ex-servicemen could never make peace with those who tortured and killed so many.
Have not read the print version.
I loved this book. Whilst I knew the story, it was still dramatic and wonderfully presented. I was totally engrossed in the story, so much so that I could not wait to commence my drive to work each day. Ken Follett is a brilliant author.
