Could not get excited about this story or the characters. After experiencing so many really great legal thrillers by the likes of Scott Turow, John Lescroat; even David Rosenfelt, this was such a poor imitation.
This book gives a more individual perspective on the movements of Easy Company that we've seen on screen, but digs deeper into the individual sacrifices, pleasures, aggravations, pain, grief and strength of these soldiers. The end is worth the whole book as they work with the actors who played them in "Band of Brothers".and re-live their war-time actions.
Without being simpering or too sugary you hear the amazing story of a remarkable animal and a post WWII Dutch immigrant who knows how to train and love him. The fact that it's a true story is a bonus because you want this to have really happened! Bronson Pinchot does a great job of narration. If you're in the least inclined toward a good animal/human love story GET THIS BOOK!
Linda Howard has written a couple of my favorite books, but I think she's gone the way of James Patterson - putting her name on books written by novice authors. Either that, or it's a very early book of hers recently released on audio. That would be my mistake. At any rate, don't bother if you're looking for anything more than sexual fluff.
He is one of the funniest people on the earth today. I was completely charmed by how he is
still so impressed by other greats in his field and others. He tells one great story after another, chronicling his life. Highly recommend.
Got a little impatient with some meandering, but Grafton has put out another good mystery - not a great one, but definitely a good one.
Great mystery, but if you can write the Harry Potter books, you can write anything!
It's helpful to follow this series in order, as you age & develop with the characters. Wonderful geographic descriptions combined with education on the Ojibwe culture and characters you really care about accompanied by a good mystery in every one.
Not usually a big fan of science fiction, but something made me try this book. Boy am I glad I did. Even though I couldn't understand all the scientific & mathematical calculations Mark Watney had to do to keep himself alive, I never bored of the story. It's well written and hilarious with great characters. HIGHLY recommend this book. Bravo, Mr. Weir!
I have enjoyed everyone of P. T. Deutermann's books available on audio and have really enjoyed every one. I was so excited to see he had a new book out, but he phoned this one in. No, that's unfair. You will love this book if you're an archeologist. I, however, am a fan of good, fast paced mystery/thriller/espionage. And, in my opinion, this isn't it.
