    Over the past two decades, Antony Beevor has established himself as one of the world's premier historians of World War II. His multi-award winning books have included Stalingrad and The Fall of Berlin 1945. Now, in his newest and most ambitious book, he turns his focus to one of the bloodiest and most tragic events of the twentieth century, The Second World War. Thrillingly written and brilliantly researched, Beevor's provocative account is destined to become the definitive work on World War II.

    Would you listen to The Second World War again? Why?

    Yes, It really takes more than one listen just to get all of what is happening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is non-fiction, not really applicable here


    Any additional comments?

    As the title indicates, this is a grand sweeping view of the entire war experience. Obviously some of the detail minutes are lost, but to get the overall view of WW II, this is one of the best books which I have encountered

    Story
    (672)

    New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint has received glowing critical praise for his Ring of Fire alternate history series. In this first installment, a West Virginia town is transported from the year 2000 to 1631 Germany at the height of the Thirty Years’ War. Thrust into conflict, the town residents must also contend with moral issues such as who should be considered a citizen.

    If you could sum up 1632 in three words, what would they be?

    Watch out Europe


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jeff Higgins - He has to grow up fast and move out of his geek world to survive in the new one.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Mr Guidall's other performances, but it seemed to me that there were times when he was trying to hard when it came bringing in accents to the story. Not being a professional reader, I am not positive what the expectations are, but some of his accents were simply too stereotypical for what is in this particular book and especially what is called for through the entire canon of the Ring of Fire series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No real extreme reaction, having read pretty much the entire Ring of Fire series, I knew the story before I listened to it through this book. There is a difference to hearing the words as opposed to reading them from the page.
