The narrator for this book is absolutely fabulous. The book is still "Crime and Punishment" but Mr. Griffin makes it absolutely entertaining and saves the day.
This is actually a collection of short stories, all of which are good and are consistent with Mr. Johnson's reputation. Just way too short.
I read a fair bit of military history. This book, while much more than that, is a great concise history of WWII. Most interestingly, the author gets into the motivations of the military leaders and it comes across excellently. There is some bias, but that is a minor distraction.
I would recommend this book to any history buff, military history buff, and anyone just interested that period of time in US history. The political science is also very interesting.
If you do buy this book, don't read it.If you start it do not finish it, It does not get any better.
I do not know how to describe why this book is so bad but the words "infantile" and "full of himself" come to mind. Dang it is boring.
I am a military history buff. I read this book out of a diversionary break. I bought it on recommendations and found that it was quite interesting and the narrator was really awesome. Not a work of art by any means but a nice change-up!
If you are a military history buff, this is NOT for you. This book is more like a Steven Segal action movie. Not terrible, just not much to it.
This was another great book/story from Mr. Johnson and crew. I have read them all. While the story was excellent it was way too short for a "book" (3hr, 39 minutes). More like a short story. I still reccommend however.
This is a shameless knock off of The Hunger Games but still an interesting read and the same sort of fun as in the hunger games. If you liked Hunger games you will like this.
My first Longmire book and I plan to read more. I was not expecting a work of art, just a good read and that is what I got. I was inspired by the TV show. I read fiction as a break from my first love (military history) and this was perfect.
Protagonist was just too "full of himself". I got tired of him fairly early.
There are much better books out there.
