Extremely disappointing. If you have any brains at all you will know who the murderer is before the murder is even committed. The characters are painfully stupid and inept. I couldn't finish it.
A fantastic book, whether you typically enjoy war novels or not. Beautifully written--subtle, painful, poignant, at times gruesome and at times nearly lyrical--Matterhorn and its characters will become part of the landscape of your consciousness.
Add to that the fact that Bronson Pinchot is stunning as narrator--his is one of the best readings I have ever heard, hands down (and I have listened to hundreds of audio books)--and you can't go wrong. Pinchot's voice may seem a bit flat in the first few minutes, but only because he is saving his unbelievable range for the characters that bring this book to life. Absolutely masterful reading.
Haunting, well-written book. You will not be disappointed.
