I've read a lot of the Patrick Robinson suspense books and enjoyed them all, until now. At the end of "To the Death" he retires Admiral Morgan. If this story is any indication, it's high time. I don't know how the author managed to work in as many cliches and cliched events, but it was unbelievably corny. I probably will not take a chance on any more of the Robinson works for a while. Save your credits and use them on something else.
Elizabeth Warren tells her own story, which is so like many of ours. Born and raised in small towns with working parents who did all they could to give us a better life. My parents, like hers, succeeded in setting me on my path. I just wish I had been as effective in working for others as she has been.
Although she is not a professional narrator (like Barbara Rosenblat, my favorite), hearing her read her own story in her own voice was a pleasure. I grew up in Texas so the Oklahoma accent sounds good to my ears. I appreciated the genuine emotion that she was able to show, especially when talking about her children and family, including Otis. She gives a level of detail that does not become tedious, and a strength of personality that does not become overbearing.
Stay the course, Sen. Warren. We need you.
The story is as good as the others in the Mitford series and having John McDonough back as the voice of Father Tim is the best part.
Love his style. He portrays all of the characters well. You never have to guess which character is speaking and he is particularly identifiable in this series as Father Tim.
Story is compelling. Never tire of this series. Just wish Barbara Rosenblat were reading it.
