Even though this book is about boxing, it is really about people and their struggles in life. It shows how a person can deal with adversity and rise above it.
The book also does a good job covering the depression and the effects on all people.
I can not wait for the motion picture to come out to see if it comes close to being as good as the book.
A real classy book.
What great book. The author takes us back to the early times of Genghis, and how he rose to power. He and his family were left to dies in the wilderness,but he returns to rule the world.
Thne author did a great job of following the life of Lee. Grant Davis and Longstreet. The book also covers the politics of Polk and the leadership of Taylor and Scott. Anyone how is interested in the Civil War will love this book
You never know what is going happen next. One of his best books. Alot of action and wondering how everyone will come together in the end. Also Ron M is one of the best readers around. I recommend this book
I usually like this author. This book spends to much time about her boyfriend and ex husband instead of the store. I could not finish the book. I also did not like the reader of the book
This is the first book i did not like from this author. The book is predictable. It also questions the use of living wills. The best thing about the book is that it is short.
Mclarty does it again. Using the tale of the present with moments of the past. He spins a great tale with a surprise ending. It is easy to associate with his tales of growing up and having best friends. He does a great job of weaving a store , that shows how what has happened in the past effects what is happening today.
Mclarty also is one of the best readers today in the audiobook business.
Traveler is as good as memory of running. I really enjoyed it
A great book for any sports fan. The Author not only covers the game in which Wilt scored 100 point, against the Nicks, but also does and indepthj analysis of Wilt. He talks about the relationship with Bill Russell, and other players. He also does a good job of including the store of the boy who stole the game ball.
The best part of the book, is the actual recording of the fourth quarter of the game. There was no TV at the game that night at Hersey Pennsylvania, but the actual recording shows the excitement when Wilt scored 100 point so many years ago.
For me it was definitely a five star book.
Mr. Shaara does is again! This was a great book. He does not cover all of the first world war, but does a good job of the Red Baron, Gen Pershing, and the common foot soldier,
You can almost place yourself in the trenches. It was also interesting to see the Politics the Pershing had to contend with.
A great book, I hope the unabridged version comes out soon on Audible.
i am sure this is a very good book, but it is very hard to listen too.
The authors reads his own book, and it is very hard to follow. There are reasons that people are hired to read books. this is one time it should
have happened. My suggestion is to buy the book and read it yourself.
