I listened to this book every chance I had. A wonderful historical novel. A glimpse into Mongolian life and culture at the turn of 13th century was fascinating. Well written and narrated. Although the deep voice of the narrator was overpowering at first, it became a natural part of the story. I liked it very much.
Greatness, evil, love
Many diverse and descriptive adventures.
Lin is real and the most unforgettable.
Could not stop thinking about the book after I listened to it.
Very different and compelling story. Real life at its finest and worst at a difficult time. This book kept my interest throughtout and tore at my heart and finally mended it with a slight scar. Narrator was excellent.
The reality of first hand experience. I felt as if I was there.
There were too many parts of the story that touched me to mention just one moment.
You you have a need for drama, love, compassion, adventure, history, you will make this book one of your favorites. It was truth in humanity. The good and the bad.
I could not finish Part 1 which is a first for me. It was written as a play and not as a historical novel. Who is speaking? The English was difficult to understand and the narrator did not help. The content was superb however the enjoyment was not there for me. My strain to clearly listen and follow was at times overpowering. Possibly a better read than a listen.
Humans at their worst and at the same time at their very best. I'm was amazed at how cruel the human being can be. War history told through letters, facts and interviews allowed me to be there and see everything first hand. General MacArthur was brilliant but also self absorbed to the detriment of his command. I thought about this book for several weeks after I had finished it. Excellently written and narrated.
Too much about nothing. A cub reporter buys a small paper, befriends the town, get religion, sells the paper, gets rich and end of story. I like John Grisham novels but not this one...boring, no plot developemnt. I would expect better from him.
