Puts you in the middle of the action, as though you are in the boots of the soldiers. Personal anecdotes are relevant and uncensored.
Narration was not great.
Some battle scenes were horrific.
Excellent listen. Well written and riveting. Recommended as are the author's other titles available on Audio.
I thought it would be a book like Shadow Divers. It isn't. The Amazon review compared it to The Perfect Storm. No comparison. A bunch of background crap about the divers is all it is. It's trite and poorly written.
He was barely adequate
The author. Do not believe the reviews. This is a stinker.
Don't buy this book. I have never written a negative review but this is so awful I had to warn people about it.
Yes. Slow at first but eventually riveting history. If you want to understand the mess in Vietnam this book tells the story from it's beginning in the early 1960's to the deplorable ending.
John Paul Vann.
Yes. He does a fine job as usual but mispronounces many of the Vietnamese towns and words.
A Bright Shining Lie. After listening to the book you will understand the title has multiple meanings and fits the book perfectly.
Neil Sheehan put his soul into this book and the Pulitzer Prize this masterpiece won was deserved. It took him eighteen years to write the book and should be read by any American citizen with an interest in the Vietnam war.
Inside information about my favorite TV shows. I enjoyed it immensely but if you aren't a fan of these shows then this probably is not a good choice for you.
Easy Riders and Raging Bulls or Pictures of a Revolution. These titles are thematically similar but about movies instead of TV. Both titles are available on Audible and recommended.
Nothing special but well done.
The fact that Stevie Van Zandt was the first choice to portray Tony Soprano.
Fascinating listen if you are a fan of the TV shows discussed.
Yes! The book deservedly won the Pulitzer Prize and it was a riveting listen.
No book compares. The story was unbelievable. A combination of true crime and courtroom thriller.
Too long for that.
This book deserves to become a classic. It is riveting and proves that truth is stranger than fiction. The story will frighten you, anger you and make you ashamed at the cruel treatment of African Americans by law enforcement personnel.
No. Same as the movie.
I do not love Frank Muller and there was an audible hiss in the background. I recommend the book but not highly.
Have not read the print version.
Alfred Hitchcock. You learn a lot about him and his quirky character in this title.
See the above answer.
Yes, but too long to listen to in one sitting.
I'm going to watch Psycho again after listening to this entertaining title. I recommend this book with no reservations!
