Yes, it is a very well done history of what happened in the Pacific under the water.
How prisoners of war where treated by the Japanese during World War II. It made my blood boil. There are other histories that go into it more but this covers it well.
All captains where done well
Yes, as I have said above, the treatment of US prisoners of war by Japan.
This brought a human side to the brave men in our submarine service during World War II. You learn about the sub commanders and their performance. It was a good read done well.
I was so disappointed in this book. It turns out to be a sad commentery of the people Mr. Garrison is writing about in Lake Wobegon. It is dark and not funny.
Not sure, I have 7 books to choose from.
It is nice to hear him read it and music interludes are nice but the story is not at all what I expected and was very disappointed.
I would cut many of them. They all have alcohol problems with not very happy lives. I did not expect that. If I wanted that, I would have chosen another book or just read the newspaper.
Yes, people get old. They find out that life is not what they hoped. Bad things happen to good people as well as bad. I always thought that Lake Wobegon was a little above that. Most of the characters have either alcohol and more alcohol problems, religious problems, or family and people problems, and some had all three. The book is dark, not funny, and reminds me more of a reality show. I waited to long to read it. By a couple of days I was too late to return it. If you expect a happy, funny look at people from Lake Wobegon, this is not the book for you. I do not understand what some other reviewers found that was so funny. I found it overall a sad commentary .
Fun, Honest, Educational
No, I believe this is Tim's only one.
I learned a great deal about Tim Conway. I have always liked him and his work. For example, I always thought he was a regular on the Carol Burnett Show. I wanted to continue to listen to the book even though I did not have the time. I found the time.
If you ever had an interest in Tim Conway, read the book. You will not be disappointed. He gave us a glimpse into who he is and where he came from with no agenda. I saw myself in several of the things he mentioned and it turned out the same way. Thank You Tim for doing the book and the audio version.
I would recommend this book to anyone that has any interest in history and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Washington Roebling was my favorite character. Taking over for his Dad, and being in his shadow and to do what he and his wife did was amazing.
Nelson Runger did a very good job of narration. David McCullough is a fine narrator and I think Nelson did him proud.
How detailed it was and the history that was brought into the book.
Five star book and narration from me.
Yes, I would recommend this book to people who wanted to know about WWII and England's having to fight it alone.
For me, the memorable moments where the parts when Churchill had to figure out what to do next to save the country.
I really like his voice. It reminded me of Winston Churchill.
As for wanting to listen to it in one sitting, it would be a long sit for that. I can tell you that I found addition times to hear it. For me, it was very interesting.
As for additional comments, this was a great book. I hated to see it end. I did not know that it was part of a series. Boy I am glad it is. I am off to the next book and the book after that. I found the book very interesting and informative. It has my recommendation.
I have read almost all of John Grisham's books. This is one of his best.
The book kept me very interested. I got to know the characters and appreciate where each was coming from.
Michael Beck did an outstanding job reading the story. His variety of voices were just great. Thank You Mr. Beck for a job very well done.
I never have time to listen to a book in one sitting. But this is a book that I found time to listen too as often as I could. I just wanted more.
This book has a story to tell. It was "real" and represented the time and places the way things where without being judgmental. I recommend this to anyone. Thank You Mr. Grisham for writing the book and Mr. Beck for doing it justice.
A Christmas read. I enjoyed the book but I enjoyed my other Christmas read better.
The plot kept me interested but not on the edge of my seat.
Katherine is a good reader. She did a fine job.
I had no extreme reaction to the book. It was just a good Christmas read, and that was enough.
If you like mysteries and want to add a touch of Christmas to it then this is your book.
The plot is an interesting one. It starts you out as a Christmas story and builds from there. It gives you a real touch of old England and what it is to have a title and some money.
As for my favorite scene, well I really enjoyed hearing about the food they where eating and the Christmas customs that where followed at that time. The ending was very good. I just enjoyed the whole book.
The books is just a good listen. It is frank, interesting, and moves along.
My last comment would be that thanks to the author for writing it and thanks to the narrator for doing such a great job reading it to me. Loved the different character voices she used. Made my Christmas much better as I listen to it a couple of weeks before Christmas.
Yes, because it has more history than I thought.
Have no idea.
There was no character. Mr. Bryson did a fine job of telling the history.
When I started the book I really didn't have any idea what I was getting here. It is very rich in history.
You just don't get a history of one year. You get much more. One mistake though, Brigham Young University is in Provo, Utah not Salt Lake City. That is the home of the University of Utah.
What an interesting book about an untold event in WW II. I gained further insight into what went on in the skies over Britain and Germany and the unwritten code of Honor that many pilots followed during that war. A very good read that was a pleasure to listen to.
German respect for other fliers.
He did a good job of telling the story.
No not really. It is a book about a real event and one that you want to plause and think about.
