The book yes, but the audio book by Coster No. Coster does not capture the essential action of the series, and sounds as if he is reading un-enthusiastically from his high-sided armchair
Hornblower-no reason to dwell on that. The story is good
Boring boring with too much pompous accents from the crew in the lower deck. His accents just do not do it for me-they are so much the upper crust English stuffy accents and they are applied lazily and un-enthusisatically. I am going to avoid ever buying anything with Costers name on from now on!!I am tempted to revert back to reading the book myself!
I found this story almost hard to take. I could not put the book down as the story was so fascinating, yet at times I was concerned to carry on lest something even more severe should happen to Louis! I found it hard to believe that the story-line was true and based on fact, but the research shows it to be so. A real wake up call to us all to learn to get along with one another, so that this sort of thing never happens again! An absolutely excellent book and very well read by Edward Herrman. If you like WW2 history stuff then do not miss this!
Much better! The only issue with Tull is his lack of knowledge of English names-Lymington is not "lime-inton" but lim-ington-otherwise he is good!
When Alan discovers the dead girl-Janet- is Bill's(his brother) girlfriend
When Janet manages to outshoot the whole navy!
Absolutely if there was time enough!
This book is a great-if sad-read! All the Shutes are excellent stories with little violence and no sex-try them all "Town like Alice" On the Beach, Round the bend etc-I think there are 16 or 17 in all
This is a great thrilling adventure story told carefully from the author of the Hornblower series. Forester tells great stories and it is hard to miss with any of his books-and he has written more than just Hornblower! Rodska is a good narrator and overall the book was most enjoyable. The story centers around rifleman Dodd and his adventures behind enemy lines.
When Dodd finds peace in the Portuguese hill village
Rifleman Dodd of course! His persistance and loyalty are admirable
If one had time for this...yes
A great read and wish there were more CS Forester available on Audible(other than Hornblower
This book ranks very high on my list as just a very good story
Well when Tom returns to the UK and manages to buy a larger plane each time-that is impressive! While Connie is so religous about his maintenance...
No, but this one is excellent
Round the Bend
this is a story which grips and fascinates, from a master story teller!
Everyone should be reading Nevil Shute if they want a good satisfying-and long-read!
