Sledge does a fantastic job of telling his story and George Wilson once again does a fantastic job in narrating this book. I knew some about the Pacific War, but this refreshed my feeling of gratitude for what these brave men suffered and fought for our way of life in this world. Sledge is uncommonly honest and strives to remind us all the horror war is and what it cost those who fight & suffer so that we don't have to - HIGHLY Recommend!!
I have long been a fan of Charlton Griffin, and have loved Sherlock Holmes since I was a boy and was thus thrilled to find he'd recently preformed (for he does far more than simply read) the Sherlock Holmes stories. His performance of these stories was unbelievable. Though the entire recording was some 26 hours, I was terribly sad when it ended...Bravo and thank you to firstly, Aurthur Conan Doyle, Charlton Griffin & Audio Connoisseur...simply fantastic. I now see that Vol3 has been released with-in the past few weeks, and thus my enjoyment can continue for a further 26 hours.
Charlton Griffin's reading of this fantastic story is nearly unbelievable! He makes a wonderful story even better. His voice is very pleasing to the ear, and his theatrical performance is the best I've listened to. I will certainly purchase most other books by him. The deep thundering voices he gives to the Cyclops and other monsters in this tale will make you listen to it more than once. The Muses music at chapter transitions really add a nice touch as well. Thank you Mr Griffin! - Carl (Michigan, USA)
This book has long been my favorite. Rand is not the first to state these things, nor is she always the most effective at saying them - but the philosophy she promotes and codifies speaks for and supports itself and has forever impacted the way I live & view my life. The story is fantastic and the characters are giants. But simply read it for yourself and you'll soon see why it affects so many people so deeply. She shows you what is possible in man/woman - what you do after seeing this is up to you - but I assure you, it will forever affect you.
I am not a Democrat, but I had read his other book "John Adams" and so thouroughly enjoyed that one that I decided to give it a go. I found myself totally captivated by the fiesty, energetic Truman. The story is excellently told and you will reach the end of the book with sadness that the story is over and with a new and ull understanding of this great and good man.
