It was a well-laid out plan for Romney's Presidency. I learned much about this man's view on foreign-policy and economics. Something the mainstream news media will not report on.
Vision for America!
I wanted to educate myself on the 2 Presidential candidates. This was a great book to learn about Romney's views and character as it relates to politics. Instead of writing about himself, like Obama's books do, Romney provides solutions for America.
Absolutely! The characters are great. You feel as you know them. I enjoyed the factual history woven into the story describing the everyday person's life in the US building up to WWII. It is written as if in the moment not with hindsight.
Victor "Pug" Henry. He was a man of his time. He had principles, and wanted to get the job done well, whatever it was.
When the Henry's were in Berlin.
US pre WWII
Follow-up with War and Remembrance - you won't regret it!
The historical accuracy with the fictional characters woven in to make the story entertaining. Very well written and prompted you to put yourself in the characters shoes. Great story to cause remembrance of WWII and the history of what happened to Jews.
When Natalie was summoned to the SS and her baby's life threatened.
Yes, The Winds of War. It was good too. He seamlessly goes between characters in the dialog. He has a great voice for audiobooks and I will look for books where he is the reader. Good accents too.
War and What would you do? The author describes the moral dilemmas of the characters' lives. Human morality and how people react.
I would recommend both the Winds of War and its sequel War and Remembrance. I didn't want it to end!
No - I would think they would be equal
Finding out about why the ghost was in the funhouse.
I think the title is perfect!
Good story of the "permanent" type of carnivals and fairs before the huge amusement parks came into existence. Good mix of noble and sinister characters.
No. The story was written like a TV serial - very episodic with no details to knit the story together. The best part of the entire audiobook was the 15 minute interview with the author at the end. However, the person interviewing seemed inept but Stephen Nasser was great. The narrator was reading the book like it was a Lassie episode - full of exclamations, child-like not conveying the serious side of the holocaust. I thought at first the narrator was a woman and was confused as to the main characters gender.
Not the right book for him to narrate.
I would choose another holocaust survivor book - there are many wonderful ones.
Missing the obvious!
He did a good job of representing the main character. You could envision the character's physical look based on the voice Hoffman used.
News media and elected officials, a partnership that deserves each other.
No. I liked the characters but wanted more connection between the generations of the townspeople. It felt flat for me. You would get into a time and its characters and then they were not mentioned again or if they were it was brief.
I liked the aspect of the generations that lived in a town. The uniqueness of the town, such as the eel river. The least interesting was the lack of connection between the chapters.
It was allright, not outstanding.
I wouldn't listen to it again.
I like the characters but some felt awkward in this book.
Hollis was my favorite character. I liked his change to become a Harlequin.
Hollis, probably. All were good
Worth listening to as it is the last in the trilogy but didn't measure up to the other two.
It had many interesting facts that didn't go anywhere. A story would have helped
I felt bad for the reader. There was no story.
Really wasn't worth the listening time.
Tragic, youth, friendship
The Seamtress (very good!)
When she lost her best friend.
This true story is through the eyes of Gerda as a teen to young adult during the Holocaust. It is very frank about her beliefs and feelings, for instance the man who wanted to marry her but she did not love. This was almost a tragedy within a tragedy. I enjoyed Gerda sharing her life, especially marrying the US soldier that liberated her. I also liked the last part of the book describing how Gerda coped with her past. A wonderfully strong woman who knew herself well.
I think both would be great. The story is wonderful because it explains this women's life being a Jew in Romania during WWII. This should be a required book in schools. Very matter of fact. No drama just her life and the unfair hardships she faced that ultimately lead to concentration camps.
This reminded me of the TV mini-series "The Holocaust" and reawakened my respect for the survivors and the heros in everyday life.
Her character voices and the accents.
Not a particular moment but Sarah's steadfastness to protect her sister and 2 other companions and her understanding of how to stay alive amid all the hardships.
I would recommend this book to anyone. The fake drama seen in our society today is disgusting when you think of WWII and the concentration camps.
