It seemed like the author did not stay true to the style and tone of the first two books in the series. And it took forever to get into the story, the beginning came out of left field.
I'm currently listening to The White Queen series by Phillip Gregory.
Cut the beginning, if they wanted to do something like that they should've tied it into the other two books. I won't go into detail because I do not want to give it away if anyone wants to read it.
Audible is more convenient for me because I am on the road a lot for work.
The author makes the characters like someone you might go to a small town and meet. He did a great job of making this story seem like you're really living life in this town with the characters.
Ron did a great job portraying the "silver fox", especially when he was meant to sing in the story.
Tick was the most memorable character. She's a smart, but quirky teenager. She has all the typical teenage problems, but handles them very maturely.
I enjoyed learning about the Navajo culture and the Code Talker's contributions to WWII.
A Higher Call is another WWII book I really enjoyed, but it takes place at the Western Front, while Code Talkers takes place on the Eastern Front.
This book is one of the best I have read so far. Most WWII books I've read have been from an American point of view, this book really gave me a better understanding of both sides of the story.
I also read Code Talkers, which is another WWII book. Higher call is more about the Western front, while Code Talkers is more about the Eastern Front.
Franz was my favorite, as the main character. And Dean's German accent was pretty darn good!
The book was really well written, the story is frustrating because the main character made so many bad decisions.
I really enjoyed hearing the areas that the main character hiked through, because I grew up camping some of those areas with my family.
I like hearing about the PCT while she was hiking.
No, the story was about a woman getting her life back together. She gave a little bit about what happened after, and that was enough.
