the reading made what was already a great story - amazing. Was sorry when it ended. Would reccommend it to anyone who loves to imagine what what happen if everything was exactly as it seems.
The narrator and supporting cast really made the story.
I am always surprised when a really good crew can give that extra layer that you cant get from a book.
If it was the only game in town....
Found it a little hard to warm up to the central character at first - but she grew on me. loved the background on the WASP unit from WWII
Cute premise - but a little heavy handed and didn't ring true for this quiet Canuck.
Perhaps it will capture the heart of an American reader.
Loved Schmidt's book Wednesday's Wars and was not disappointed in this book which continues the life of the main character's best friend.
Book is intended for teens - but crosses the adult divide and makes for a nice lite listen. Lincoln is a great reader and perfect match for the central character.
Kevin told the story in a very unassuming way that made the impact of what happened to him even more powerful: going from a grinding high pressure success journey to zero in a matter of hours.
..and then detailing the love that helped him come to terms with all that followed.
May have dated myself with the Headline :) but loved the story and how it made you examine the things you take for granted.
Loved the book. It gave a great perspective to a world I will never know.
While the book was really a history lesson on the German Airforce during WWII thru the eyes of an ace pilot - the second part of the story - saving a bomber was a nice bonus.
Bought this book around the same time as "letters from a woman homesteader". Interesting to compare the women that flourished in the hardship and loneliness and those who needed a gentler world.
A sad book and cant say I warmed up to the hero.
What a powerful book. Los Angles gangs wars..it seems like a loosing battle. Yet here is one man who pulls a neighborhood together and chooses to face the odds and love those the world has deemed unlovable. Reading this book was a humbling experience and made me question my own values when I go thru union station each morning and see those the city has thrown away.
Confess, I am hooked on the series and love the characters and storyline.
