This is a fantastic book - I am a big Lehane fan but the depth of the characters & their interaction is remarkable. Great book, great performance. Bravo ~
I like the complex story line of the book, as well as the interwoven characters. The ending was a bit weak, but it didn't spoil the otherwise delightful read.
Grisham just gets better - he creates characters we care about, in intriguing situations and with the audio book we get the benefit of a great performance. I will say his endings are still weak but better than his earlier books. A great read ~ !
This is a very good history - I think it is worth the time for anyone interested in WWII history.
I was disappointed by the last Longmire book, but this one is back to the high-quality of the prior books. Great character maturation, tight believable story and as always, the performance of George Guidall is fantastic.
I think Caroline Lee is a fantastic performer - she is a significant contribution to every book I've heard her perform.
As to this book - I love the complex story and overlapping lives of the well-developed characters. And then the 'secret' was disclosed & I almost stopped listening but I encourage you to keep going - the end weaves it together in a way that makes it very satisfying.
Well work the read.
Indeed an editor would have helped but it is still worth the read. While the first 1/3 is far too detailed with unimportant data, the last 2/3 is detailed with interesting although not critical data.
The performance is at best a "C", but the quality of the recording is very poor; I'd say a D-. When they splice in corrections both the volume and tone change dramatically, which in some .parts is very distracting.
Overall - if you like history it is worth the read.
I love the Davenport series by Sandford, but I am always puzzled that he continues to use a C grade (at best) reader when there are A+ performing artist is beyond me. But once you shake the bad reading, it is definitely worth a listen.
Absolutely fascinating subject. The book has a good pace, and is well written. While I do agree that a heavier-hand by an editor could have improved the book, the detailed approach is a small price to pay for this biography. Worth the read -
I am a huge Dickens fan, and given their similar writing styles how I missed this author all these years I do not know. But I am happy now to have found him now, and this performer is fantastic. I am not in love with the ending - and his other book "The Woman In White" is a better story - but this is definitely worth the time. The man could really write ~
Great story, great characters, great narration - love this author, can't believe I just recently found him.
