I am a huge fan of the Patrick O'Brian novels and have been looking for authors that write about that time period fiction or non fiction. This book hit the mark. It is well researched and well written. The authors meticulous research and writing style will lend itself well to educating future generations. He brings the story alive! The narrator is not the best (he is actually hard to listen to) but after you get into the story you do not notice or care.
The writing was smooth the anecdotes compelling.
This book hits the nail on the head. When you take services and turn them into
A different book entirely.
This book is a weak attempt. Are you 5 star people fans of Jerry Springer and Judge Judy? This is the only demographic that can think this is a worthy read. Please warn people that this is a book of outlandish stereotypes, pedophiles and wussy's.
This is one of the rare gems of historical fiction. If you like O'Bryan and Bernard Cornwell you will love Pressfield. Narration is on par with Patrick Tull! I could not stop listening.
Wow.. Is there life after Sharpe. The entire series is as good as it gets!
This book was clear and precise in what is happening in CHINDIA. If you are involved in business in the USA READ THIS BOOK!!
My kids are 4 and 5 and can be difficult to get to bed! So as any loving father of audio books I decided to give this a try for a calming soothing bed time ritual that was longer than a Dr Seusse book. Well it is magical!! My daughter cannot wait to listen and my son gets into them once they start. They listen to them over and over. ENJOY!!
This book was not what I expected. not much adventure. more how the mind works wohoo
I do know now that publishing books has become more important than creating a masterpiece. Please come back and thrill me with suspense, fear and wondering. You have such talent to produce spellbinding tales. This is not one of them and the one before was not one either. Take some time off. But come back with a good one or you will be known only as a pulp fiction grinder.
I read alot of reviews for this book and decided to give it a try. Wow was this written by a 15 year old? YES! and you can tell after listening for 5 minutes. Dont get me wrong, if you are 15 or younger you will enjoy this book. If you like fantasy and are not into new thinking or unpredictable plots knock yourself out but do not leave 5 star reviews!! The author will get better with age. It just seems he is trying to hard and things are slightly disjointed. If you want good SF or Fantasy try OS Card.
