I hesitated to by this alternate history novel since I am a Staunch Democrat and this novel wass by Newt Gingrich. Never really took him for the fiction kind of guy, but WOW! What a piece of work. Compelling, accurate, entertaining, vivid, couldn't put it down. Just bought Grant Goes East 5 minutes after I finished this one. DO NOT MISS IT.
A gread read. Gingrich and Forstchen do not disappoint. Their Civil was series has a great Followup with this series, if you loved the civil war series you will love this series almost as much
I enjoyed these novels by Gingrich and Forstchen almost as much as the civil war series by the two. Although I will say I did enjoy the civil war series about 10% more than the wwII series. But that being said This series is excellent and well done and well read.
This third volume does not disappoint. It picks up just where the lst novel ended and held my attention till the last word. Knowing that I would have to wait for the 4th installment I stopped halfway though this novel and re listened to the first two before completing this one to make it last. That is how much I enjoyed this 3rd novel. Well written and exciting till the end.
Tried to begin this book 3 times each time I became bored with technobabble, and I generally like technobabble. But this had no attraction. Sorry Mr. Crichton, try again.
This is not the book to buy as an audiobook. This book needs to be in hard copy. You need a highlighter and some postits. Too much information, some needs to be read twice and the audio book just goes too fast for such a dense subject. I have never made it through, but I have listened to 30 minute sections from anywhere in the middle and its fine wherever you start to wherever you listen to. It does not have to be read contiguously, and I might add it several times has put me to sleep. Also the narrator is kind of monotone and boring.
I bought this book thinking it would be erotic, but it was not that at all. It was very interesting and I am glad I read it. But exciting, I would not call it, nor would I call it dry. I would best describe it as interesting and worth a read.
Well, It did it for me
I really like this books summary, and I enjoyed how the audioboom began, but it became confusing and muddled in the middle and I lost interest. I may go back and try again, but it is not what I would call a clear cut winner, try a different one if you have more choices.
I loved this three book series when I first read it in paperback and loved it even more when I head the charachters come to life with the great Naration. Grat series, but you will NEED to buy all three, LOL.
I could not shut this book off. I had to finish it. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Do not begin unless you can finish it. I LOVED this book.
