The story itself. This is a hero at the fullest extention of the word, loaded with great deeds as well as deep downfalls. One might even think this to be a carefully crafeted work of fiction. Because it did hapen, Patton's life soars above any myth. He was a living myth.
His notes and letters, where he expressed his focused drive to become famous, his view on military tactics, and the role and attributes of a true leader.
Clear voice, as well adequate emmotional rendering where applicable.
Some small parts of the recording are damaged. It would be great having them fixed.
The story itself. It's a true tragedy of the highest proportions. It's dramatic. It's daunting. It's full of superlatives. Just amazing.
The precise reconstruction of Titanic's timeline, particularly from the moment when the iceberg is seen until the Carpathia arrives at New York. Of course, as I mentioned before, the entire story is great.
His rendering of this superb account does enhance the experience. I did enjoy listening to this narrator.
I first heard of the Titanic as a child when I watched the first episode of the scifi TV series "The Time Tunnel". A couple of years ago I had the outstanding opportinity to touch an actual piece of Titanic's hull during my visitation to the itinerant "Titatinc the Exhibition", also a must for those who love this story (http://www.titanic.eu/). Of course I watched Jim Cameron's "Titanic", which I only enjoyed because of its perfect representation of that long-gone era. Now, "A Night to Remember" revealed to be a great addition to my knowledge base of this involving subject.
Yes, spending time to listen to this book was worthwhile because the book, even though abridged, supplied extra information to what I know about the Battle of the Bulge.
I didn't realize the book was abridged until I started listening to it.
It's such a sad story - as every war story is supposed to be - that it's difficlut to say that the book has a "favorite" scene. A very disturbing one, though, is that where a German soldier surrenders to the author but someone else shuts him in the belly, and someone else, possibly the author himself, shuts him in the head to end his agony.
No, it doesn't, because it has a battle as its subject, battles have a start and an end, and the author covers its participation in the battle from start to end.
The book was excessively abridged, to the point where one loses almost all the context wherein the Battle of Bulge too place. Very little is said about the parties and actors involved. It could and should have been more enlightening. Other aspect to consider is that this is the kind of book whose story requires the use of maps so it can be properly followed and interpreted. This certainly applies to almost all war stories.
Absolutely! This is a must for the space exploration history afficcionado!
Tough question! But I'd had to say the author, Gene himself. He is the reason I bought the book in the first place
All of them! I just loved the book. Danny delivered a great performance.
It was a wonderful experience. Thanks a lot!
