Dark, depressing, tense.
Listening to some of the interrogations would leave your palms sweaty.
The female voices were a little annoying.
The whole book is dark, dreary and depressing. This is not a happy, inspirational story.
It is a true classic... There is a reason people are still listing to this 150 years later.
Yes. I really enjoyed the conversations this generated with my teenage children during a long road trip.
It did seem a little too slow placed.
An uncomfortable book for those who are not used to thinking for themselves.
A wonderful tribute to the power of hard work, self-sacrifice and the meaning of true love. Rarely do you find yourself loving, hating, sympathetic to, disappointed in and admiring the same character in the same story.
You wouldn't... It is the perfect title.
By audiobooks standards this is a short book. The applicability of the story to today's media driven world is frightening at times.
Far better than 1984 IMHO.
This is a history book, war story and love story all in one book.
I wish women would narrate women's voices.
I was totally surprised by how much I enjoyed the love story aspect/portions of this book.
Most military officers will love this book. The first few hours are TOUGH as the dozen plus characters are introduced. Hang in there. Once you are hooked, YOU ARE HOOKED for 60+ hours.
One of the most interesting non-fiction audiobooks I've listened to thus far... Fast paced and never dull.
We really lost, burnt, destroyed and screwed up THAT MANY nuclear warheads? Only by the grace of God did we not blow ourselves up by accident.
Krauthammer's text is incredible, and the half of the book that he personally narrates.
His logic is so clear... Wonderful cross between a great story teller and a brilliant observer of the world.
Charles SHOULD HAVE READ THE ENTIRE BOOK. Charles Krauthammer's voice versus Newbern's is like fine scotch versus rot gut whiskey... Fine wine vs. sour juice. I was extremely disappointed when the story changed over from Krauthammer to Newbern. Did I mention Krauthammer has an incredible and soothing voice that is perfect for the audiobook format?
The format makes the book fly by! The best of Krauthammer neatly packaged in one book, but for God's sake Mr. Krauthammer narrate the ENTIRE BOOK.
Adventurous, thought provoking
The surprising and thought provoking conclusion.
A story of physical and psychological survival.
I almost wish I would have read the book due to the intricate nature of the story, but then again I may have not had time to just sit and read it through (I listen to audiobooks while driving). Unless you are an excellent listener, you may miss some points or wish to be able to go back and reread select passages. Regardless, it is an incredible book and highly recommended regardless of the format.
