Mostly preparation stories
Yes and no. It is another of Griffin's fill-in-the-black books, it seems to me. As always, I enjoy learning about the further development of the characters, but the suspense was a little lacking.
Pretty dang good.
It became apparent how much Dick Hill contributes to the storytelling. He is one of my favorite. However, this one was recorded in '96, and almost all of the character voices are different. This changes perception of the character- most of the time for the worse. I would purchase a new version if it became available. Other than that, Dick is awesome!
I really like his voice, yet he has changed the speaking voice of characters and pronunciation of different names. It really pulls you out of the story if you've listened to the first books.
Even though it is fiction, it brings a perspective into the lives of those whom we take for granted every day.
It wasn't a nail biter, but I enjoyed listening when I could.
I found the dialogue to be a little campy. The action was good, the storyline was solid, but the characters were a little weak. Even heroes aren't perfect, and the main characters were presented as saints.
This was easily the best book I've come in contact with. I was sad when it ended, wishing for a few more hours. I'm sure my wife is glad it's over, as I couldn't help but sit and listen for hours every night. I certainly hope it doesn't take another 30 years for Lt. Marlantes to write another, I'll be waiting in line if he does.
