I was very torn reviewing this book. I thought the narration was very un-even. His dialogue narration was far better than is 'story-telling' narration. That being said, I found his narration extremely monotonal. I also found the sexual language and sexual/romantic storyline to be very primal and base and not romantic or loving at all. I know that I am certainly out-numbered on this issue: I guess the base and sexually implicit language might have been pertinent to the story, but I mostly found it to be offensive and vile. It is a well written story, but not worth the accolades, I've certainly read & listened to far better WWII novels
Although this novel is one of Ms Hannah's earlier works, it rates as one of my favorites (The Things We Do For Love is my Number 1 favorite) Susan Ericksen does a superb narration, I tend to search for novels narrated by Ms Ericksen and I have not been dissapointed yet. Kristin's insightful view of marriage and women's issues are beautifully portrayed. I am looking forwarding to downloading another Hannah/Ericksen audiobook
