Listening to the familiar voice of Tom Brokaw is the greatest treat to this story; it was indeed a highlight. The choice of examples he used in depicting this generation was superb and poignant. I now want to read the unabridged version. This audio version will also be a nice gift for friends and family of "the greatest generation" to take pride in what they have instilled as values in American society.
I continue to enjoy the Tales of the Otori and really enjoyed the 4th book. However, the narration was disappointing. The pronunciation of the Japanese words and names are unsatisfactory, and the male narration is soft, gentle, and without impact. I will the earlier narrators could have been used. The story, however, continues to be fascinating.
The challange with Lord Saga
This exciting series did need a proper conclusion, but the addition of so many new characters made the ending drag on and on until the middle of the book.
