People who know me would think I would eat up a historical retelling of Medal of Honor recipients. Truth be told I was at times bored listening to this book. I mean the subject matter was Epic but between the mono-tone and seemingly disinterested orator, and the dry, text book like cadence of the story telling, it was difficult to get into the narrative. The biggest hindrance to following the several stories happening simultaneously was a lack of auditory queues before switching from talking about the guys in the jungle to the guys on the carrier deck. It would have been nice to have those music queues to prepare the mind for a thousand mile jump.I wanted to care, I wanted to get into this story. It had its moments of brilliance, however, the book seems to focus more on academic clarity as opposed to rich story telling.
Only if a friend recommended a particular performance.
