There's very little narrative about the British spy ring and their actual spying activities and lots of gossipy anecdotes about wartime Washington. It doesn't really deliver on the premise.
Fischer removes the myth from the typical retelling of this amazing military victory. And he provides context of the war to that point. And great work of history, well told and well narrated.
Will's narration puts you on the river with this quartet of city boys in over their heads in the Georgia back country. Even if you've seen the movie you'll want to listen to this one.
An enlightening history of the war. From the perspective of 1963, it has some dated elements and is a little too heavy handed in regards to attitudes in the US and the world. But overall it is very well researched and presented.
I can't imagine a better narrator for this entertaining book than Lisette Lecat. She brings an authenticity to the story. And the story itself is beautifully crafted and leads the reader into the characters' lives.
This is a great set of shows from the very beginning of the Hitchkiker's craze. Plus some bonus material with interviews providing some nice behind the scenes info. Overall very enjoyable.
The novel is an American classic that hits home on many levels. Michael Emerson makes it come alive with an understated, expert performance. A real joy to hear.
For the start of a book series that's lasted more than 15 years and as many novels this was a pretty weak effort. A thinly plotted yarn about counterfeiting with some truly unbelievable plot elements, it went on a lot longer than I found it interesting. The performance didn't do the story any favors. Plenty of effort at individualizing the characters, but some of them were odd in an offputting way. The preview of the second book at the end was much more interesting.
This book is written by an author who comes across as very self-satisfied and a jerk to boot. Not worth spending 14+ hours with his thoughts.
Bradbury's stories are always thought provoking. There are some very good ones here and the rest are solid. This audiobook suffers from poor narration. Hoye has a good voice, but his inflection is affected and annoying.
