I purchased this book because of the publicity around it, but did not know anything about the author or even the subject matter.
It opened my eyes to the subject matter and the unrivaled violence of the crime group. In that it delivered.
It is a raw look at the system and how it affects the territory and people of naples.
In my view. The only problem was that I went in expecting a story and found none.
my fault for buying without knowing more about it.
For a look at this organized crime book it has to be one of the best sources in the market
The subject matter and theories outlined in this book will definitely make you think.
It is also an entertaining story that is narrated incredibly well.
One of the best titles I've read in a very long time.
I have to say that this is a truly amazing book. One of the best I have read about the war.
It is a tale in wish the reader will live the fear, hope happiness, rage, love, of a human being surviving and inhuman situation. This is far from a documentary, but an amazing narrative that will capture the imagination of readers for a long time to come?.
A must read?
I have to say that I truly loved this book. It is filled with great sites, incredible characters, magic, a flawless narration?.. I have to say that after 30 hour I was still deeply into it. Never lost the desire for more?. But?. I also fell like it left some loose ends? like maybe there is a part 2, that is my only quarrel? I sat down one day to listen and it was over? I didn?t see it coming, and expected a lot more?..
But.. It any case?. This is still a great book? all the aspects that make an audio book great are here? and the reader will enjoy it?.
It has been said that the power of fiction is in the belief in the underdog?. If this is true? then this I a true powerhouse of a title.
In it we fallow takeo grow from the most humblest origins and follow a path that will take him face to face with some of the most powerful people in his society.
The book is written with a great attention to detail, not just for the character witch are very well write?. But also for this fictional Japan. I found myself in awe of the beauty of the land, the texture of the culture, the mere richness of the details in this great book.
If I said this book was great just for the story, it would be an injustice?. This book is great for all of the sights and sounds that take you into a far away land and make you feel like a powerful samurai
A great start to an excellent series?
This is a great book. I often found myself wondering how the author could possibly know so much about this war and most of all the vast number of characters in it. The story delves deep into the humanity of the war?. So much so that it sheds incredible light for anyone wanting to learn more about the history of the of the Afghani people, and the struggle against the soviets.
Something else that had me enthralled with this book has to do with the fact tat this war was a factor in the fall of the Soviet Union, an event in history that truly has changed the world.
Yet? the most amazing thing about this war is Charlie Wilson, a true champion for his cause, the greatest of all anti heroes?.
I was told to check out this book by person after person around me. I finally made the decision to pick it up and it is a decision I will not regret.
It is well narrated, and greatly written. From the very beginning you become a fan of Ender, and cheerleader in his war against the buggers. It is exiting and very refreshing, and original.
