Will take you on an adventure!
Get Robertson Dean back! Richard Clarke has a great deal of current and appropriate knowledge about the things we need to know. I listened to as much as I could stand but could not finish - Yes! I am spoiled. No! It isn't personal, Mr. Larkin did not make mistakes, he just simply "read" the book. I purchase books by who narrates, author, subject in that order. Again, please don't publish this, as it is unfair of me to judge - you will see that my library is very extensive, I've been a member a long time - I wish I could give a better review, and if authorized, I would return this book, unfinished - Thank You
Hired Robertson Dean, George Guidall, or ANY of the readers that Orson S. Card uses.
It was NOT a performance! I've gotten spoiled by the readers mentioned above.
I don't know how the book ended! I didn't get the material I needed, because the narrating was so distracting, that I couldn't stay with it. However, having read, or listened to Mr. Clarke's other books, I am sure I would have liked it. I will buy the text and read it for myself
I usually do not rate books, unless they are extremely excellent. the idea that my words might keep knowledge out of the brains of listeners, just because I didn't like a particular narrator, is awful. I take NO pleasure in writing this review.
I've listened to the story several times. Will (Patton) is an excellent actor/reader and has gotten into the story on a visceral level. Yes! I'm a veteran of that war. Veterans will understand easier than general readers, but the story and production are such that all listeners with heart will truly understand. The angst is real, the characters true, the production is first-class.
I loved it, right up until the ending! Pissed me off so much a gave the story a one!
Great truth is difficult to describe and impossible to keep interesting, however Robert Baer found a way!
If you want a picture of the real world told in a spell binding way - take a listen!!!
Scott Brick is an excellent reader - i will buy anything he will read. Red Rabbit is a good book.
