Found this book to really be a drag. Too many flashbacks, jumped around and hard to keep track of just what was going on. If they should ever make a movie, I sure would like to have guns, ammo and explosives contract. Evidently the main guy does not understand that "stuff" happens and seems to want to carry the a lot of blame for everything. Actually I fell asleep several times, just could not get involved with it.
Just seems like there is too much going on to keep up with it. Thank God for George Guidall's naration.
I now have all 5 of the Trail series. I have listened to 1 - 4 at least 4 times and this one twice. While the stories are really good, it is the reader that makes it so much fun. I can't explain it, but these books just bring a smile to my face. So get all 5 of them listen in the order written, you won't be sorry.
A story of sadness in a prison camp in Japan, it not a story I would have endured I am sure.
I have listened to all of the Trail series twice. While the stories a very good, it's the reading done by the author that makes the listen great. I have laughed out loud at many of the different slang terms the charters use through out the book. Hope Mr Lewis has more of these stories coming.
I guess that I am a fan.
Most of the Bookman series have been good books. Nothing outstanding, just really good listens.
I have been listening to Reacher books in the past. Unfortunatly; in this book it seem that any idea or thought required listing the several possible alternatives, over and over this happened and I really had a hard time completing the book. This problem really messed up a good story.
Really good story. Could not stop listening. Left me really looking to books 2 and 3
This story kept me laughing and hoping it would not end. I listen to books a lot and It has been a long time since I enjoyed one as much as this one. A good story, easy writing, believable, just a wonderful listen. I will look for more books by David R. Lewis, but he will have a hard time topping this one
I enjoyed the story, but seemed to drag with not much happening at times. Really unhappy about how the book ends, but suppose left that way to form an opening for the next book.
Anything read by George Guidall is made better by his reading!!!
Was a great history lesson, but the history was so boring I never got to the story (if there was one). I have listened to other Griffin books, but this one just kept on and on, so if there was any story in there I never got to it. I should return the book, but t t t t.
