This is a political journeyman's flight through prewar, understanding the politics of war and the long term affects considered long before the end of a conflict.
Oliver Wyman takes a great story and brings it alive. He manages the main character with the dry wit and believable experience needed for the lead while opening the listener to the supporting characters in their own light. Masterfully read and the voice changes perfectly done to emphasize each of the participants in the story.
Every lead character came alive as a result of the readers ability to bring out their demeanor.
Oliver Wyman makes the character Pitt created by Larry Correia an intriguing dry witted but personable character. His knowledge of guns in incredible and fun to listen too even in the most technical terms. Earl Harbinger is another dry witted strong leader but his character leaves you wanting to learn more. All lead characters are delivered in the strongest presence.
Yes, most definitely!
Its not about the crazy food but the people and friends along the path. Andrew does a great job reading his book bringing you right into the story. He brings in the people side of his stories and some background behind the scenes not shown on television. You end this audio book looking for more detail on the background and people Andrew has met on his many journeys.
