OMG, as we say today. This is an amazing performance of as goo a book about the sea, as exists in the English language. If you love the ocean, naval history and wonderful voice don't pass on this one.
I listened to the first chapter and found that I could not go on. I liked the performance, but the prose was not to my liking at all.
Yes. The narrators are perfect, and the text is written as snippets of emails, letters, journal entries, and conversatios, so that the story really lends itself to the audio format with a male and female narrator.
Wouk is a genius at developing a female character (see Marjorie Morningstar and Natalie Jastrow), so any of his other novels stand up well with his latest.
Reigert makes one feel as if he is listening to Wouk himself, and Mamet does the women and each of them true justice. These are big female characters, and I had tears in my eyes after the epilogue. I'm a 64 year old man.
No movie. Please.
i have a neice who is a rabbi, and I can't wat for her to experience this book.
If I could have gotten past the reader's irritating voices I might have actualy stuck with this story
Poor and unbelievable accents and intonatios of the reader
Sorry that I wasted a free read on this one. The 4 1/2 stars posted with the title were way off.
