Hopefully this woman's story will continue to be told in this and in other ways that capture her drive, romanticism and love of people and culture from different nations. I would welcome a different audible reading that is slower with pauses that allow more time to capture the spirit - her spirit, her expansive world's spirit, at the special moments, of which there are many, articulated in this book.
I think Henry Kissinger was right to call this book "The war itself". The way Pariseau (the narrator) plays all the different characters, including the women and as well as men in the story, is amazing. Anyone who has seen the move and/or read the book should also listen to this.
I'm just disappointed that Audible.com doesn't have the sequel to this (War and Remembrance). That's my only disappointment.
