I really liked this book. Although fiction, it weaves an interesting tale that rings of actual history. The narrator adds a lot to this book with interesting inflection and accents. I can't wait for the next one.
I have listened or read almost every book written by Bernard Cornwell and this one is as good as it gets. At first I was taken back by the pronounced English accent of the reader but it prove to really add to the story and was clearly understood. I recommend this book.
I thought this book was great. One of the best I've listened to - period. If you like history this book will provide you with lots of interesting details about George Washington and the people surrounding him. Not only did I learn a lot about this period in American history, it is very entertaining. Can't go wrong with this one.
I did not like this book at all. The dialog was childish and trite. I see this book as a boring knock-off of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The narrator has a child-like tone which contributes to the childish dialog. The book continually references past many past events which probably indicates that this is one of a series. I ploded through to the end wishing for some improvement but finding none.
I really enjoyed this book. It's not what I usually read but it is certainly one of the most memorable. This book is filled with delightful stories about the history of Ireland and its people. I'm not Irish in any way, but I found this to be very enjoyable. I recommend this book for a great escape. The ony thing I regret is there are so many "S"'s in the English language.
This was a really good listen. The narrator had some difficulty with pronunciation but it was a very good book to listen to. Very entertaining and sometimes even humorous. It is a history of the formation of the universe, earth and the history of modern science told in a very entertaining manner. I certainly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science and history.
I could not get past the first half of the first section of this book. It is full of gross and graphic sex including homosexual sex and it doesn't add to the story at all. The story line, though original in thought, makes little sense and is hard to follow. I can't believe someone was actually paid to produce this trash. I am sorry I wasted a book credit on this one. The only reason I give it one star is because that's the lowest rating I can give.
I have not read a book by Stephen King for years because I believed the quality of his writting was really getting poor. This book is the best he has written since THE STAND. This book was entertaining and kept my attention throughout.
I liked this book a lot. Koontz is elequent in his descriptions of places and things to the point of being too verbose and I hope his next book is not so wordy. It does distract from the story but not to the point of ruining the suspence. I couldn't stop walking around with the ear plugs for days.
