Not disappointed. Well written. Malcolm Hillgartner's narration capturing. One of the millions of brilliant , outstanding Christians murdered by the monster of Nazism.
You feel you actually are there with the characters as events unfold. There is an underlying optimism and absence of panic which I believe would dominate the emotions of people subjected to such a tragedy.
The isolation of Fort Repose. The romantic feelings of characters frequently referred to in the book.
Can't describe it. He's good.
Be more careful in buying dystopian books. I really liked 1984 but not this.
Don't get it if you want a gripping "can't put it down " read. It's so-so, that's all.
Yes. I love pursuits and escapes. Blood fleeing alone in desperation would have been good but he's always with friends.
Treasure Island. Pirates, gold, murder etc.
He's good at fake accents. British , Irish , Spanish
Great value at $3.95!
No. I could relate the basic story in a few minutes.
Show mercy to "enemies".
I'm a little weary of books that are twice as long as they should be due to extensive "cradle to grave" histories. "The man who broke into Auschwitz" is like this.
Following Taylor's spirit of sacrifice for God.
His total denial of self and faith toward God to provide.
Didn't read the print version.
Shirer's face to face encounters with Hitler.
I like clear , sharp voices like his.
In my opinion it should be more concise.
Depends on their interest. If they love ww2 rescue stories I would.
Good quality recording.
Definitely would have been better with a pro narrator.
In the top 15.
It revealed a part of the holocaust I wasn't familiar with.
He's comfortable to listen to, although it seems to diminish the intensity at times.
The sewer escape. Such suffering I hope I never know.
H.G. Wells exposes the inner feelings, fears, and desires of man. It's a little like looking in a mirror.
The stories could be more believable.
Not sure. It's definitely period fiction.
The Morlok attacks.
The time machine is a great movie already!
In the top 3.
Platt's flight through the swamp.
The tearing away of little Emily from her mother.
During a Bogo sale this book piqued my interest. Then I discovered I live only 34 miles from the location of Northup's slavery! I was born in Alexandria,La. and have lived here nearly all of my life. I am familiar with the locations of all the places mentioned in the book. It's stunning to realize that the events in this book are so close geographically, and culturally to me. Even if this book weren't true, (and it is), it is still gripping and deeply moving. It made me to considering more the suffering of African Americans and the reasons why the Deep South culture is what it is today. Nevertheless, neither resentment nor prejudice comes from the pen of Northup, but only thankfulness and honesty.
Haven't read the print.
Using the wasp nest for a weapon.
Defiance of defeat and death.
In my view this is a book for youths. I am really surprised at its reviews. There is definitely an intensity missing for the adult reader.
