I have listened to this twice! I would love to say her contributions to history and the amazing stories, but it really boils down to whiskey pancakes.
Perhaps. His performance was hit and miss. I felt the whole time as if he were trying to sell me the ship.
The beginning third is slow to congeal into anything exciting.

If you enjoy naval history -- particularly WWII and submarine services history -- then this us for you.
I enjoyed the story and the narrator, but there were technical problems that sounded like clipping and cd skipping in spots that were disruptive. The first 10min of Chapter 11 comes to mind.
It was interesting, especially the unfolding of the two stories at the sane time.
Demand they get a clean recording, then yes.
Please fix audio issues.
The history of the Primorsky Krai and areas in and around the deep east of Russia is to the casual Westerner almost as far off and mysterious as of that of the Incas or ancient civilizations so long ago. I did not expect to be introduced to the culture and problems of that area, and was delighted to learn of Dersu Uzala, Vladimir Arsenyev, and others.
The complications around the poaching preservation and sometimes necessary extermination of the Amur Tiger are expertly told and woven along with the terrible and exciting tale of this particular incident. That this story did not spread widely when it happened is both a mystery and almost expected... as such things go in this part of the world.
100% recommend this.
I would not recommend this audiobook to a friend, for a couple reasons. Firstly, there are too many names of individuals and units to keep track of; and, most importantly, the narrator is very distracting. He seems unable to speak many common words, such as "the." He sounds clipped and awkward, and some sentences are almost unintelligible. I will never listen to a story narrated by this man again.
I have listened to Ortona by this same author and narrator. The same complaint applies for the narrator, but Ortona is easier to follow than this book.
He seems unable to speak many common words, such as "the." He sounds clipped and awkward, and some sentences are almost unintelligible. I will never listen to a story narrated by this man again.
Macgyver on Mars. This is the science fiction I love: that type which seems entirely probable within the lifetime of the audience at the time published.
The evenhanded journalistic approach Lawrence Wright brought to this story was to me the best part. The religion manages to shed illusions and expose itself a monster without much coaxing at all.
Christmas Dinner with the Seaforth Highlanders, the Fallschirmjager defense of the city, "mouseholing" technique developed by Canadians in order to advance through the city.
He is very distracting, almost as if his voice were constrained and reading were difficult to do. He seems unable to speak many common words, such as "the." He sounds clipped and awkward, and some sentences are almost unintelligible. I will never listen to a story narrated by this man again.
I am a WWII reenactor, and am now more enthusiastic in efforts to portray at a reenactment the Canadian infantryman.
