To me, this is a story showing how drive and conviction are excellent qualities in human beings. And the characters "personalities" tend to parallel those of today.
Not quite a saga, but pretty good character development. I only learned of the "controversy" surrounding this book after getting through half of it. While sometimes seeming almost prophetic in nature, one must remember that this is fiction. It is merely a story, not prophecy to be fulfilled someday.
Nothing. There is an echo of his narration that is quite annoying. If it weren't for the story, I'd probably have quit listening.
Reading about Galt's motor actually working, makes me think of the rumors of the 50mpg carburetor awhile back.
The "love triangle" seems a bit off to me. I find it the most uninteresting part of the book for me.
Brotherhood, brotherhood, brotherhood
Falling on the grenade, knowing full well what he was giving up.
Literally, it left me wanting more. It was very captivating, held my interest the whole time. Then it ended. I'm going to search through the authors other works now.
This was read exactly as if you were reading Black Hawks journal yourself.
A pretty good attempt at getting different accents across.
An allied side of the story
No character per se, but he does try different dialects that help discern between which country the individual may have been from.
While it states an American viewpoint, there is quite a bit of British and other allied stories involved. Which is a good thing in my opinion.
I really like how the author pulls many different sources to give a seemingly well rounded account of events during Hitler's life.
To many. But hearing about Hitler's early years is a plus.
Not laugh or cry, unless you count the emotions that are sure to arise when listening to accounts of how human beings treated each other.
A very long read, but one which I believe needs to be visited. To hear a history of the Nazi party for yourself, and not just hearsay over the radio or television.
I honestly could not finish this. I tried, maybe it was because I was only have interested, but I shut it off and haven't been able to finish it.
How many different eyewitness accounts tell the undoing of Dr. Jekyll
If you've never read this classic, you should. It will most likely change your perception of Mr. Hyde. Having only seen this story told in cartoons and the like, I believe Mr. Hyde is not given a true account of his character in the movies/cartoons.
Same Old Story.
The two main heroes. The way they feed off of each other.
Pronunciations. That is helpful.
Absolutely! It's a fairly entertaining story.
"I did not give the lie!"
No narrator. This is recorded as a stage play. You get a different actor for every part.
No extreme reaction. Of course I was already familiar with the story.
Be prepared to rewind every now and then to catch what was said when the actors whisper. Having a hard copy of the play would probably help. Of course, then you could just read it.
