    Story

    On his last long walk, septuagenarian war hero, deserter, and professor Alessandro Giuliani shares his past with an illiterate young factory worker, spinning a remarkable tale of heart-stopping escapes, of loves unrequited and won, of madmen, dwarfs, and mafiosi. But overshadowing all is his most miraculous and terrible adventure, the Great War: a surreal parade of horrors that devastated and defined Alessandro, yet enabled him to experience fully the magic and beauty of the absurd human comedy called life.

    Stuart says: "Painting with words"
    "Poetic, funny and memorable"
    Overall

    I finished this audiobook more than a month ago and I find that the characters are still on my mind. The prose is beautiful and the author's insights are funny and compelling. I commute close to 500 miles a week, so I love a good long listen to occupy my mind. A Soldier of the Great War did not disappoint!

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    Story

    I'm too young to remember the Tate-La Bianca murders in the news, but I do remember when the movie Helter Skelter came out on TV. I would run from the room when the trailers came on. To me, as a child, Charles Manson was the real life boogey man and I feared that he would escape and seek me out on the opposite end of the US and kill me! As a grown-up, an attorney and an avid fan of audiobooks, I finally got around to it and I can't be more pleased. The book covers details of the investigation, along with LAPD mistakes and bungling, step by step. The bizarre and brutal details of the murders and Manson's domination of "the family," the brilliance of Bugliosi's trial prep and the subsequent trial, as told by an excellent narrator made Helter Skelter one of my favorites.
