The story was really good, just as I had susptected it would be. Unfortunately the narrator challenged me to stay in the story. It was simply things, pronuciations, accents, etc that bothered me. Especially pronuciations. Seriously, if you're going to read a book, you had better understand what you're saying because I sincerely believe that the author did.
I was rather disappointed in this book. It was not up to the same calibre as Brad Thor's others and seemed lost at times. I really did not like the narrator for this one, confusing a French Canadian with and American from the Dakotas or western Wisconsin. Bacis things like that take a person out of a story and due to the amount of time this character spent in the book, it significantly annoyed me as a Canadian.
I think that my headline says it all. I'd all but given up on Dale Brown, but A Time For Patriots has brought back my faith in him. Worth a read or a listen, enjoyable story.
This was a very interesting story that was RUINED by multiple narrators. If they had used multiple people for individual characters that would have been fine, but there were 5 or 6 different narrators used throughout and they would change at odd times.
Read the book.
This is probably a great book in the unabridged format, but absolutely none of that is eveident here. Whoever edited this cannot have actually listened to the final product, it is so jarring, each time a new section comes on, I had to take a couple of minutes and try to infer what had happened. This was even the case with major plot points. Avoid this! Buy the unabridged instead.
