I really couldnt follow this story. It seemed like Hemingway was not sure of himself when writing this one. For Whom the Bell Tolls was a work that left you wanting more but it was all I could do to drag my way through this one. To be fair I am not a great writer but I just didnt feel anything when listening to this verses For Whom the Bell Tolls where I felt the fear, anger, rage, passion, ect. All in all though it wasnt a waste of time.
You will need the Kleenex close by when you listen to this one but oh man is it worth it. Enjoy!
I like to keep things simple. This has got to be one of the most well written and expressed stories I have ever had the good sence to buy. I couldnt turn it off and if you love America I am sure you will find yourself in the same boat!
I found myself laughing, crying and just having a great time. Bill really is on heck of a guy. If you get this book you will enjoy it all the way to the end.
I am an over the road truck driver and I have listened to this book about 5 times now and just can't shut it off once it starts. Bill O Reilly has writen some good ones but for my money this is the best. I have lent out my hard copy many times now and just keep passing it around because the truth REALLY is better then fiction! I have to say that this is another of those books that makes me sit back and really ponder our history in this great nation. I am struck by the overwhelming nature of this account of the last 14 days of an American Hero. This should be a required read!
Im not going to get too in depth on this one but I will say that I learned so much and was truely inspired by a great man such as Washington. This book should be required reading for EVERY student and adult in America!
I found out that my wife was reading this book and it sounded like something that would help me pass the long miles. I drive truck for a living so an audio book really makes the day go by faster. I was not disappointed in the storyline at all. The main plot of this book is a good one and will keep the attention of almost any reader. After my wife and I had both finished the book we rented the movie. What a let down! If I hadn’t read the book I would have had no clue what was going on. So much was lacking from the movie that my wife and I found ourselves completely lost. In conclusion, Watch the movie if you’re of a mind too but for sure read the book!
