Although the story was simple and direct it was exactly what I was looking for. Relaxing and to the point. No brain surgery required!
I am a history person and was looking forward to getting a deeper insight into this historic occurrence. In addition, on a recent cruise, visited Hiroshima and it became a life changing event for me personally! Too repetitive and didn't spend enough time regarding the American's involvement after the bombing!
It may have received a great review but it was difficult to get into while LISTENING to this story! I was really looking forward to getting it based on the many accolades it received but sadly did not enjoy!
It sounded like they were getting too deeply enmeshed in the operation of the ships and much too many details. Also, very repetitive!
Interesting difference between detective mysteries "of old" and todays shoot them up;
slashing stories. Enjoyable but don't expect edge of your seat excitement.
Maybe it was the "dark" way the story started but it set me back in terms of relaxing and enjoying another magic moment with Humphrey Bower.
Easy listen and filled with detail. Great performance. Plenty of layers to keep your interest.
All I've ever really focused on in the past regarding WW2 is America vs the Nazi's in Europe and against the Japanese in Asia. This book deals with the events leading up to our involvement in China and establishes the underpinnings for what has evolved into current day China and Taiwan. Other than trying to understand all of the players involved in this story it was a great historical saga!
Nothing was lost in this continuing character driven story. If anything, funnier than originals. Worth the purchase.
Great escapism and fun "listen". May be a little long for the depth of the story line!
Very predictable and a little contrived. Not as exciting as his past audio books. Too much of the same and slightly corny!
