Packed plenty of history into a short book. Keep your ears open or you will miss alot. Historically balanced and not over simplified.
Yikes. This book is about how sad and unhealthy the rest of the world is in comparison to her family. A long over the top celebration of their life style. Learned very very little about how to actually DO anything with the land.
Narration was a fail, over-the-top self narration.
Absolutely nothing. Already know too much.
This author clearly has a background in literature. Therefore she is very happy to finally write her very own book. Result? Every sentence is over written. I want my money back
In depth and fast. Good quick read to learn about an almost forgotten war. Good narration.
Ohhhh, just a terrible narrator. makes it very hard to get through the level of detail this book holds. Look elsewhere for information about this time.
Sebastian writes a good story about life at the tip of the spear. Not perfect, but worth the read.
Good lord what a book. Interesting way to approach history, shows how the objects we make have such an effect on our culture and lives. Marvelous.
I read just about anything related to the spy world. This could just be the worst. Will be asking for my money back.
