This was a really good story read by someone who had empathy for the main characters and their stressful situations. Try to also read Shadow Divers for insight into the submarine culture of WWII.
This is one of my all time favorite audiobooks. The story is fresh and interesting and the performance really compliments and enhances the overall feel of the circus.
I kept waiting for the various threads of the story to coalesce into a meaningful or at least purposeful whole. It never happened. Instead there is a series of misfortunes that befall the characters in this story, but none of them moves the overall narrative in any discernible direction. Overall a disappointing, depressing waste of a credit.
