These are fine stories from a Vet who really loved and understood his job. The only disappointment was that "Jingo and Skipper" wasn't included in the anthology.
A more honest title.. This is not evidence for belief. I was expecting a lot more from such a leading scientist.
There is no hope for this book. If he keeps trying he will find the truth and may even write a new book.
A few... Not worth a credit
I suppose the line "A man of unshakable faith in God and scripture" could mean ANY old god we want to create. I'm not even going to guess what "scripture" might mean.
The book got off to a fine start,but the story seems to drag around the middle of the
book. There starts to be too much detail, as far as I was concerned. A small example,-
I'm not really interested in the sexual needs or desires of the WW2 Japanese soldier (s).
There was more than ample violence and gore to disqualify this as a love story
It was a good job over all.
From the start to the middle, yes the rest could have been cut to the last chapter.
You're going to get a lot of well researched history, a lot of horror inflicted onto innocent
people, cruelty to the extreme and, of course,sexual deviancy. If this seems a bit too
much historic reality , better pass on this one. On the other hand, if that's the kind of
thing you like, you're going to have to wade through some mushy spots.
He killed off one of my fav's ! Where's my hobbling equipment?
This is a good read. I titled this review "second best" because The story line got into
the "unbelievable" realm quite a bit.. Nothing against fantasy, I read quite a bit if Terry
Brooks, but I kinda have a hard time mixing fantasy and reality into a single book. Still,
there's plenty of mayhem , Pendergast is up to the task.
The surprise villain revealed..
Nope, the whole story was a mover.
Buy the book. It's a good read, even if it does stretch the credulity just a bit.
probably not, because it doesn't resolve to a conclusion.
probably, He is intelligent and a good writer.
The narrator was excellent.
This is a scholarly and well presented book, though some of the history and logic were questionable.(Couldn't Paul just read the letter he'd just dictated to his scribe to see if it said what he wanted to say?) Mr. Ehrman admits that most of the mistakes are incidental, harmless, and change the story line very little, still I infer that he wanted to shake my faith a bit- he failed
This is a talented writer when it comes to conveying graphic scenes of gore and meaningless violence. So much for anything positive. The narration drones on and on and on... through the vastness of the dry deserts of Mexico and western US. Our blood thirsty heroes busy themselves wiping out various villages and towns that happen to be in the way. If you like coagulating blood, congealing like thick pudding on the dirt floor of the little church, and hacking off body parts just for the pure sickness of it all, this book is for you. I'm more familiar with, and partial to plots and a reasonable line of logic.
I bought this one on sale,($4.95) so I'm not too concerned about that, but how do I recoup my wasted time?
Over all this is a superb reading by an excellent reader. This being the least pricey of the various readings, I had some misgivings as to which one to choose. I'm very happy that I chose this particular one. Mr Davies does each of the characters a little more than justice. Exquisite, would not be too strong a word for this recording.
As for the story itself, Great Expectations has been one of my very favorites for many years. Those not familiar with it are in for a treat. I hope listening exceeds your own expectations, as it did mine.
