I found this narration sickening. Listen to a sample of this guys voice before you buy, if you don't vomit, you might want to buy it. I couldn't get through the content..I'm sure it might be helpful if the guy didn't talk so rhythmically. This is the quintessential "tv/movie" hypnotist..."you're getting sleepy" kind of talk. I've listened to a lot of self suggestion type audio books and you don't have to "talk" someone into self-suggestion. It is possible using normal speech patters. See Abe Kass, Ted Benton. Much better.
I've listened to a lot of books on audio and few narrators have brought the material to life like David Horovitch does in Anna Karenina, it was a joy to listen to. This is worth every credit or dollar if you are thinking of giving it a listen. David Horovitch does a nice job of changing his voice for different characters, in some instances the back and forth dialogue could be hard to follow without this. The audio production as a whole was done quite well. I've listened to other books where you can hear the narrator taking breaths, occasional skips in the tracks, excessive time breaks between book parts/chapters, books that sounded like they were digitized from earlier tape copies...but this book had none of that.
This is a long book, but don't be discouraged by the length, it goes quickly once you start listening.
This is a great book, investigative journalism at its finest. Chock full of detailed accounts of the events that took place, in-depth background analysis of the people involved, all delivered in a gripping narrative.
This is a good book if you're looking for a brief synopsis of Patton's life. I found the book a bit hollow and would have liked a more in-depth account of his life and military campaigns.
