It is an hour well spent brushing up on the basic timelines of WW1. There are a few interesting back stories of the main events and it covers it well. It would be a good introduction to the story of the Great War and is well told.
However it is not meant to be a thorough book - it brushes over most of the main points. I have a bookshelf of WW1 books and this skims the surface but it is worth a read especially if you don't know much about the war.
Archduke Franz Ferdinand???!
It is a quick gloss over a great career. Not many interesting back stories. Not even as good as the Munich movie which did a better job on Charlton's playing time at United. It's a good enough read but falls short at 2 hours. It barely mentions the Alex Ferguson times when Sir Bobby was a director. It would have been nice to see his viewpoints on more of this.
No - I love sporting biographies but this was not a very complete one
Yes - did a good job on Sir Bobby's accent
I would like to see a proper job done on a fitting tribute to Charlton from his young days to the world cup to the European cup and onwards to management and the boardroom and ambassadorship at United.
Worth about $3-$4 based on the short running time
It's a little slow in parts but the book is a good listen. I would listen to the sequel which I think is coming next year.
If you like Ian Rankin's Rebus you would probably like Cormoran Strike in this book
Performance of all characters was brilliant. They were well developed characters in the book but the voices were excellent
This is a good read but it is quite slow getting going. Characters are excellent.
I'm about half way through the book at the minute and to be truthful I'm hoping it will end soon! The story has potential but is slow moving and not a page turner. The voices are terrible and the 'Irish' accent of the male Rourke by a woman who sounds closer to Scottish is grating me.
Voices not great and the futuristic setting is a bit gimicky and not developed well. If set in the present there would be no real difference.
Voices not great
Possibly but I wouldn't read it!
The voice is a bit annoying at times and he's not great at the female voice. The book is set before mobile phones and internet and sometimes this makes it sound very dated. However the story is alright if not a little predictable at times. But it was not time wasted overall I did enjoy it and would read one more in the series to give it another chance as it had potential to be even better.
Modernise it a little with mobiles and ditch the pagers!
Voices not great
Bosch played by Chris Noth
Think when I bought this it was a daily deal for around $4.95 which was very good value for this book
Highly recommend audiobooks to anyone - especially for exercise such as running where it is good to have something to pass the time.
Probably not - after about 6/7 chapters in I figured I saw how it was going to turn out. But I hoped it was a distraction, the ending would hardly be that obvious?! Alas - it was...!
However the book has a good pace, interesting premise and naration is good - however some of the voices are not great.
