I think I have read all of John Connollys ' books ,and have never been disapointed. The White Road is excellent and in keeping with this authors best. His use of the language is first class, his characters whilst complex are interesting, his plots are perhaps deep, but very compete, The Narrator added to the books enjoyment I look forward to further novels
This book is definitaly a five star edition; overall performance excellent,narration superb, characters strongly created, plot keeps you enthralled. I think I averaged some six to seven hours a day listening, literally hard to put down. I guess you could say I could not fault this book.
To the author, well done that man
I HAVE NOW PURCHASED THREE ALEX BERENSON BOOKS, SHADOW PATROL, THE FAITHFUL SPY AND THE NIGHT RANGER. I HAVE BEEN VARIOUSLY IMPRESSED, ENTERTAINED BY THE FORMER TWO. HOWEVER THE NIGHT RANGER WAS DISAPOINTING IN THE EXTREME; THE PLOT RAMBLED, THE CHARACTERS WERE WEEK, IN ALL, VERY SHALLOW INDEED.
AS FAR AS THE PLOT IS CONCERNED, THE READER HAD TO KEEP UP WITH VARIOUS CHANGES OF LOCATION,CHARACTER MOOD AS WELL AS ALMOST OVERPOWERING DETAIL. CERTAINLY NOT WHAT I HAVE COME TO EXPECT FROM THE AUTHOR
I gave up on this book one of those books that you should enjoy, a competent author reaosnably narrated but doesn't entertain, inform, or hold ones interest.
This is my second attempt to write this review. To begin, this is an inciteful book o great compassion, a deep sense of empathy. A story of a substantial sense of the importance of life, indeed a passion for life, how else could servicemen in this position for an extended time maintain a stoasim such that he could find the strength to carry on living? I found this book to be informative, and timely. Certainly it records events that took place some seventy years ago but surely it reminds us all, of the courage of all allied servicemen who found themselves in such an apauling situation. Well done the authors and narrator
A stimulating book, well written, and very well narrated, The book is uncomprimsingly violent, but then these are violent times, and one feels the author has captured the time. The characters are well drawn and the lead character evokes sympathy, but on reflection one wonders why, he has few redeeming features for the main, and his "haunting" seems to be entirely justified. The politicians on both sides of the conflict demonstrate a complete lack of social morals, the combatents are mindlessly violent . This book I feel is thought provoking but at the same time disturbing and well worth the listen
I felt this was very ordinary, characters were not strong, plot took a long time to develop. In short I don't think I will follow this author
This is a true classic While the explanation of the time and space relationship is reletively unsophisticated, the book remains a great story. I read this initially a long time ago but was pleased and entertained in hearing it again.
Very readable and performed well. Frankly I did not feel it lived up to many of the reviews. Well read and the story flowed. Worth a read.
A book easily read, my first Kollett book. I will certainly read others. The characters, as well as the times are well drawn.. Whilst I generally thought the book met all criteria as far as entertainment went, I felt there were times that it dragged perhaps it is to long and at times a little to much detail. Was I pleased to have bought it?, certainly, would I recommend purchase? very much so.
A good book that perhaps should have been great. In my view its length counted against it. Forsyth simply doesn't write bad books or even mediocre ones; this is simply to detailed but unquestionably worth a listen
