The story, and the fact that it is true, and the great job the author did in describing the detail of what happened to the main characters.
They all were.
This is my first Audible.com book, and Edward Herrmann was fantastic. Hope he does many other books.
This book is one that everyone should listen to to understand the war between Japan and the US, in the forties.
Everytime I read a Stephen King book, I think that it couldn't be topped, but his latest book is captivating. The performance, the story, everything was fantastic. A must read for any Stephen King fan.
I am a pilot, and fascinated by books on aviation. This book held my attention throughout. It is written so that even someone that isn't a pilot can understand the difficulties of designing a complex aircraft like a 747, which is still one of the most successful and popular airliners in the world, and will be for some time to come. Excellent book, by the very person that designed the 747.
It is amazing that even the IRS is afraid of this organization which is clearly a for profit business and not a religion. This is as much of a cult as the one that Jim Jones ran. This book tells it all.
I am not good at writing book reviews, but this book was wonderful. The story, the narration, both were excellent. Looking forward to reading another book by this author.
This is one of the best Audible Books that I have purchased. Stephen King is a masterful writer that keeps you in suspense, though out this book that is around 46 hours on Audible. The performance is incredible. This is a must have for anyone that likes Stephen King.
I was wondering if such a long story could hold my interest. It was fascinating and after the first few minutes, I was hooked. The narrator was excellent and made the story come alive.
At first, I wasn't sure I would like this story, but after the first chapter I was hooked. Couldn't stop listening till the end. I would highly recommend this book.
I grew up in New York City and had seen the Brooklyn Bridge and traveled on it many times, but never appreciated what a remarkable story there was behind the building of that bridge. In addition I learned a great deal about the history of New York City. I highly recommend this book.
Seemed like alot of this book was the Author trying to legitimize life in the Mafia and to act like he and his family were really good people caught up in their ancestry. Of course that is nonsense, they made a living by threatening and killing people that got in their way.
Loved hearing Samuel Jackson read this book. He made it seem real, and couldn't stop listening to it.
