How tough is it to narrate a life that is lived so privately in public? Very tough. But that's what keeps us curious. Those who criticize William and Kate for guarding their privacy so jealously would do well to remember that they have opened themselves up in ways that the Queen never has and never will-- interviews, for example. And the appetite is more insatiable than ever. Her Majesty is something to behold, and I wonder what it would be like to have some sense of national pride that was timeless. Politicians come and go, but it would be lovely to have some traditions that were a point of pride in the US. A good, solid read on the hardest subject imaginable.
Hard to think that not everyone has read the book or seen the movie (get the Masterpiece series for maximum pleasure), but even if you have, this is a nice piece to revisit it. It's Jane. Jane Austin.
It's hard to pick a favorite among the Longmire series. They are all pretty unique in setting, tone and devices. But this is a really good one. Buy, Listen, Enjoy.
Such an amazing story that is so well-written and incredibly well-performed. It was a crucible. Cornelius Ryan's, The Longest Day, is similar, but not as much of a feat since the vets were around for Ryan to talk with. Buy, Listen, Learn, Enjoy.
Loved this and couldn't stop listening. So well-researched and written. Buy, read, and be amazed as the story unfolds.
This kind of writing is not easy-- flashback, etc. It's really, really well-done. I lived in Asia for a while and he got right. I could feel it and smell it. Seriously.
What a fun read. Read this, then a couple of the others about Julia. She was very human and down to earth. The best kind of Americans in Paris.
Interesting Concept, but twisted character development. Wouldn't have bought it if I'd known or seen it coming.
Good story, fun read. Mr. Guidall thinks he's Walt. He's not. And he can't read women. That sounds like an unfair criticism, but I don't think so. Others do, and don't sound cloying or patronizing. Vic should give him a swift kick. But the story's very good.
So glad it was written and very glad I read it. Much to learn, still, about one of the greatest, most horrific challenges that the world faced mid-century. Buy, read, learn.
Not sure why I earth on bought this. Didn't think I'd like it and didn't. Guess I wondered what all the fuss was about. Not into naval gazing. If you are, you'll probably like it.
