Yes, because of the wealth of personal accounts from those who lived through the Last Battle
No single character, but rather the German People
Once again, The Germans themselves.
The last few pages as the battle begins to wind down.
If you like military history then I would recommend this book very strongly.
Someone who enjoys mindless violence endless gore and all too predictable endings. I hadn't engaged something this dumb since reading Myra Brenckinridge in the late 60's, but as another great American character once stated "Stupid is as stupid does". I must confess I was very stupid to even finish this goreathon. Especially since I had figured out the ending within the first hour of listening.
Believabilty come on could this entry have been any more camp? No
Stop trying to sound like one of the brothers from the hood. Finally I found the entire performance bordered on the offensive, and toward the end it no longer bordered in it but floundered in a sea not only bad taste . After the first two lines of dialog you knew it had no where to go but down.
My reaction was one of just how stupid did they (creators) think I was. I guess very because I finished the thing.
Not worth any more comments.
One of the best and what a pleasant surprise it was
The ending even though I had figured out what was going to happen, it happened in a way that I found very appealing.
No, but I will look for Mr. Williams when considering future selections.
Perhaps not an extreme reaction for most listeners but for me and the type of book it is, my extreme reaction was thinking, and a lot of it, about the darkness that dwells within each of us.
A very good tale about the darkness that exists both inside us and outside us and just how closely related they are.
the narrator. Kathy Bates is great what a talent, her narration makes this story What I liked least was, I felt there was way too much God in the story. Books that have God as one of the main characters has been and always will be a turn-off for me.
Who was really desperate and who was merely unhappy with their life situation. Least interesting was the God angle. I mean come on God is God and man is man. In my opinion when one attempts to mix and match this concept the interest begins to decline.
She does make a somewhat long and at times confusing tale of good vs evil come alive. Without her narration the book suffers. One of her best efforts.
Yes but I won't be watching, so who stars in it doesn't really matter.
King has certainly done better, but with Kathy Bates narrating it, the story does keep your attention and was an enjoyable listen. This is the first time a narrator has had this kind of impact on me. I will keep Ms Bates in mind as a excellent narrator and it will in the future be a important element in my choice selection.
I'm not sure I loved anything about Storm of Steel. I feel the word love is out of place in this context. Storm of Steel is a view of World War One from a German soldier. I enjoyed the stark reality of what war is all about
When the lead character first encounter death.
If you're lucky you will just get wounded.
Very interesting view from the German side however the overwhelming tone is one of incredible violence which almost becomes the norm, without much sympathy for the individual. Well worth reading if your into the history of Early 20th Century Europe.
yes most certainly
poor, everytime the narrator began to speak in what i can only guess is local accents he became at times totally uncomphrehensiable. worst narrator in the over 300 books i have order since joining audible
all of them
Some of the weakest character s I have encountered in some time when the reader or listener are able to predict every action and reaction of the main characters do, I feel the author failed to establish the believability of those characters and that was certainly the case with game of thrones. And the plot in a word silly.
What happens when the wrong person finds him or herself in the wrong place at the worst possible time, and the ripple effect that works it's way through all those involved, namely a richly developed cast of characters who make you care about what happens to them. A great story presented in an equally great fashion.
Without a doubt when the big wave hits the "Caine " at the height of the typhoon .
The common sense Mutiny
One of the Second World War's Great works of fiction. Not to be missed.
An engrossing look at WWII through the eyes of a young Irish girl caught in the web of war well worth the read
the girl friend she seemed so real and sad, lost and yet full of life, that is the Western view of life, or how to have it all but end up with nothing worth living for.
the book publisher in South America
the devastation of self realization.
A great listen to help understand the strange world of 2012, and looking past the Madison Ave. portrait of what is supposed to be America in the 21st century. A rare look through
another individuals eyes concerning his own transformation from wall street clone to real human being.
plot-line and narration
yes, selective disclosure, putting together the pieces one at a time and combining them all at the end much like the main character did and arriving at satisfying conclusion.
everything, Mckinty and Doyle go together like salt and pepper. It might be hard for me to imagine one without the other.
yes, and I did
Having Ireland's troubles as a backdrop to Mckinty's tales is a really good touch, it's like history and great fiction bound together in a well thought out tight package that informs entertains and excites all at the same time, no small feat in the 21st-century. A great detective work. All ready listening to Mckinty and Doyle in another listen. If you like the art of detection this is for you. Talone
