These books have a very interesting and imaginative take on the Robin Hood story. A treat for anyone who enjoys tales of the Dark or Middle Ages.
my husband insists that I try one more Iles book before giving up
No, too long, too many storylines
Easy to listen to.
In Cold Blood
Narrators fits the story
I had always wanted to know more about this family and about the bunch who had perpetrated these horrendous crimes.
story was too slow and didn't take us where we wanted to go with it
Jeff Shara's new WW II novel
I don't follow narrators.
we needed more reason to care about these characters than we got. very little humanity until the final scenes with the sister.
I was just disappointed overall. I didn't like any of the characters enough.
setting during WW I
Yes, but that wasn't possible.
I will continuing this heroine in her adventures.
This book gives rich detail on being a Private joining the Army. Training to be a paratrooper, actually going to war and fighting to get back to the Airborne units after D-Day and freezing in the Battle of the Bulge--all these experiences made me wonder why we go to war in the first place. To say "war is hell" is a oomplete understatement--made by a General.
This is a fun read. Character development is strong, insiteful and imaginative. Whether or not you knit, it's enjoyable to read. I found I couldn't wait to get back to it each time I had to put it down.
I can see why it was on sale. This guy needed a therapist--not giving us a complete downer of a book. This would have been much better as a short story after a good editor worked it over.
If you have ever wondered what it's like to be President of the United States--read this book. Although it takes a long time to wade through it, it's worth the trip. Narrator made me forget I wasn't listening to the Author.
This Author is truly great. World War I is a period in history that many students of Baby Boomer age never covered fully in American History. This book was full of new information to me. I have since become much more interested in this period in our history.
