I have never read the print version but this book was full of facts, I think that books such as this are important for the younger generations to learn about how we all must cherished what others have earned for us.
This book is comparable to Band of Brothers and The Pacific, they are similar in style and tone, but this one lacks the closeness from the other two. Those of course are stories about bonds of brotherhood, where this book takes on a vast topic.
I think the audio narration makes the facts, stories, locations, and other facts easier to remember and understand. The narration keeps the book from becoming a textbook.
WWII War in Europe
This book is amazing. It has details that need to be known about what our elders have done for us and what they fought for. The sections on the concentration camps had some information that I have never heard before, and cast a whole new light on a part of history I thought I knew.
Yes and no. I learned a little from this book, the author seemed to wander from topic to topic and the whole book was loosely tied together.
This is the first book buy the author, as I have mentioned it is an ok book, but I never really got the sense of what life was like during this time in history. I was expecting more of a history and fewer "stories"
No this was my first time hearing him. He did a great job!
Yes and no. I wanted more information, more facts. The author bounces all over the place. The chapters are loosely connected, and only a few times does he point out that our modern conception of a pirate is very different than what are the facts.
Overall not a horrible book, but not what i was looking for.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the history of submarine warfare in WWII. It is entertaining and informative.
I would say the protagonist, but he is the author. His first hand views and experiences bring this story to life.
I don't fault the reader as much as the audio engineers, the book was great but the recording was very poor.
Yes, and I did, it is very short
A sailors first hand experience of life under the sea during war time. The whole book felt like a story being told by my grandfather. It came across as earnest and interesting. A must read for history buffs.
Chilling, heartbreaking, exhilarating
When the protagonist returns to the modern world.
I found reading spot on. He brought the characters to life.
Yes, I regretted every time I had to pause the book
I have loved King's books and audio books for years. He has a way of writing that makes you feel and see every scene. His characters are complex, not 2 dimensional.
This latest installment has been one of my favorites, he truly is showing his maturity as he grows. Where once he was thought of only as the "master of Horror" I think books like these will cement his reputation as one of the greatest American authors.
