I will keep this book and read again because I like the character. The story talks of a period of time and changes in the countries during the mid 1900's. This will also be one of the last books that one of my favorite authors.
I liked all the female characters. Jack, main character is stable boy to man who lives through some difficult plans without feeling sorry for himself but he does get incredible support from loved ones.
Was surprised how the book focus so little on the 1 generation from the 1 first of the sequal. Winter of World really covers a differant period (WW2) and again from the young adult, children, of the 1st book characters. Daisy grew the most. Vernon & Carla were the most steady.
Really enjoyed the performance. Amazing reading of the British, Russian and American accepts to help picture characters.
I had moments of laughter and shead the odd tear. Was mostly moved with tension listening to the implications to varying political decisions and practical responses. The world has seen such simaltanious varying civilian treatments!
One of the best Audibles. Rapid moving, short story. Timeless story of political history, murder mystery. A wonderful intorduction to the Audible books.
JK character development was well done & maybe based on personal experience. Usually there are good and bad persons in a story that balance each other but I found the balance really very negative. Expectations were a positive read (After Harry) but found this book a tragedy.
Narrator did a good job of reading. Continued to that end of the book because it was an audible, I would have put the book down if I needed the engergy to read.
