The smearing of Robert Bly by the women"s movement just showed how un-read these people were at the time. Men who desire to find out what is going on in their lives, (and the women who love them), and why many are so dis-satisfied with the way things are, can profit handsomely from this book. It is an excellent gift, hard won by Bly's years of research and experiences of working in men's groups. Of benefit to every Western male I know. This is not a once over book however. No problem; the serious reader will find themselves wanting to go back, again as they see themselves perhaps for the first time. Like the unlocking of an important puzzle.
A must read for anyone who cares about the coup and the imminent destruction of America. The jihadis have won.
Too bad Stieg Larsson died right after this Trilogy was written, but worse is the fact that his lifelong support, confidant, and common law wife received nothing, while his estranged father, & brother usurped all proceeds from their publication due to archaic misogynistic Swedish laws. Makes them commensurate with some of his villains. Perhaps he was thinking of them when he crafted some of his characters.
I think the story idea is a good one, but the author cannot make the dialog believable. The reader is good. I made it through 12 out of 16 chapters, but can't stand the way the dialog goes, and the story begins to deteriorate as the book progresses.
I thought I would like this, as I am a big Patton buff, and grew up in the Shadow Of WWII. But the reader is a poor one, with poor voice modulation, and a twangy nasal quality to his voice. He also just reads poorly with the sentences not coming out as though he has even looked at them before. I am grateful for Audible's "return it if you don't like it" policy. I only managed to get through the first two chapters, and I'd rather have the Credits.
Very disappointing. William Shirer, was a writer and Narrator. He tells a good story, but with this; it all seems so choppy. The Narrator is just not up to the task. he has quirks he repeats throughout, almost treating every sentence in the same way. He seems very amateurish not to mention his frequent mispronunciations.
I find I really like this author and what she brings to her works. She is careful and thoughtful by design. That said: This is not the best book in the series from the standpoint of story for story's sake, BUT is a very necessary book in the background of Maisie Dobbs, to more fully appreciate the books that come after. Her lessons in psychology alone are thought provoking, and most importantly, are healing, positive, and light emitting.
Very well done. Most believable. The author shows a very good deal of intelligence, and a good researcher. Overall a very pleasant surprise. I'm buying my second one now.
Good story, well written, and excellently performed. This book applies to all of humanity. A story for our times. I'll not say who I think Should read it, as they would not allow themselves to be moved by it anyway.
Good character development attempt in a repetitive character by a second book. I'm thinking this guy is getting more and more interesting. So is Robin, (or Robyn as I've not seen the print), his very special sidekick. I am interested, as a male, that she is able to get some of the more subtle male attitudes down in believable fashion, (or maybe it's just me who thinks they are subtle attitudes). I hope there will be many more with these two characters. I like this book.
This should be read by every rank and file common American. She is a scrapper willing to fight for us, "we the people". I think we should draft her in 2016 for president. At the same time throw out all of those party hacks that only seem to be able to support the moneyed corporations and "one percenters", who think "We The People" just means them. We need someone who would actually do what the people need and want. Let's Draft her.
