As with the other stories in the Alan Lewrie series, this is just a good "Boy's Own" type adventure. Keeping in mind the stories are just fiction, the detail to accuracy and nautical terms of the time add to the colour and flavour of the of this period piece. I highly reccomend this as a "Just Fun" type of listen. I must add that John Lee is one of my favourite narrators.
"Oh, Dear God"
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. Both are incredible stories of survival and the will to live in the harshest realities known to mankind.
As I have not read the book I cannot really say, but I do enjoy Mr.Prichard's style of narration. I tend to find it relaxing, or maybe familiar, like the voice of an old friend.
Yes, very much. Near the end when the Doctor found out he had survived the Bataan Death March. I found that very emotional.
A good listen. Something to look back on when you think your having a bad day.
I would highly recommend this story to readers of all ages. A classic in it's own rights, creativity blending story and characters in a fashion to keep the listener enthralled with little or no effort.
I particularly liked the blend of character personalities.
Ralph Cosham's gift of narration brings to light the complexity of personalities that I don't
think the average reader could appreciate or reveal with only one reading.
