I am amazed at some of the previous reviews. To say that this story is anything other than transending is incredible to me. The story needs to be sipped and listened to without relation to time. I sometimes believe that we are all to caught up with the fast pace of life and we cannot appreciate the beauty of such an elegant and evocative story. The prose is haunting and the characters become part of your imagination in a nearly holographic way. Mr. Frazier allows you to be transported to another time and reality- a reality where you see the characters in your mind and believe in their realness. If you allow yourself to be ensconced in a wonderful story, and have the ability to drone out our all too hurried world, then you are ready to enjoy a remarkable journey when listening to Thirteen Moons!
Unlike more recent reviews, I was moved by the color and personality of the characters. You could nearly smell and touch the history depicted. Not so much a breakdown of the technical aspects of battle, but a moving account of the personal and national wounding of people and a country. One of the best books I have heard or read.
