This is an intricate and interesting story, giving me a much better understanding of the causes, events, and repercussions of the first world war. John Lee is a marvelous narrator, with a lot of variety in the voices, accents and emotions of he characters.
Way up there
The performance seemed a bit flat. Good job between men and women, but not so much between Shea and Brandy. The female voices were a little confusing at times.
A cracking good story. This time travel story fully explores characters, while offering an insight into history.
It seemed to be aimed at a young adult audience, rather than mature ones.
Narrator Ruby Dee made this book come to life in a variety of voices, emotions, and moods. This book is poetry with a complex main character. It's a definite "must read" for book clubs.
Jeremy Northam is superb in his narration. Most of the text is in the main character's mind, rather than spoken aloud. Northam's take on this book really brought to light the idea that the character is speaking to himself. The narration brought this book to life.
I couldn't get too far into this book because of the narrator, who mispronounced words, read too fast, and had a rather high feminine voice. It's too bad, because I didn't want to continue the story!
