This book was recommended to me by another American I ran into during my trip to Norway. It is an incredible story of survival - the will to live, the risks taken by those determined to help, and just simply luck. Knowing this was not fiction, but a real person's journey, made it all the more amazing to me. The author tells it like it is - without being sensational or boastful - so feels little more like a documentary.
Very long, but so is the history of Ireland. Wonderful reader, and wonderful story weaving together a complex relationship between the characters, and the oral history of Ireland. I would recommend it.
This is only my second audible book, and I really enjoyed this. Great reader. He captures the attitude and tone of the main character, John. It's a little long, but I was never bored. Good action, and good tension throughout. The only complaint I would have is that I felt like the author bailed out a little at the end, and left many threads unresolved. Still a good read though, and the ties to the post 911 world make some of it seem a little too real.
