    "Good Listen"

    I read the Starbuck books when they first came out and loved them. This is a good narration. At first I though the narrator's voice was a little to rough and not southern enough. But it grew me. His really did a great job with the battle scenes and with building the intensity through the novel. One mispronunciation irritated me -- I guess I thought the word "quay" was pronounced "key". maybe I have it wrong . . .

    "Solid effort"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if he or she were a civil war buff, or just generally liked a good adventure story. It seemed that the descriptions of the specifics of the war went on a long time and became a little repetitive. Best part are the characters and their interrelationships-their motivations.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Probably Old Man Treslow-he had a ton of integrity and grit. All the others had some serious flaws of basic character.


    Have you listened to any of Ed Sala’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just the first book in this series and his work is about the same.


    If you could take any character from Copperhead: Ball's Bluff, 1862 out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Delaney-he's sharp, cynical and entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll probably eventually listen to the whole series, Cornwell seems to get you hooked on his stories.

    "Copperhead"
    Where does Copperhead: Ball's Bluff, 1862 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed Copperhead just as much as all the other Nathaniel Starbuck stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy reading about both sides not trusting Nathaniel and how he got himself out of trouble with both.


    What does Ed Sala bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think the author does a great job of mingling historical fact and great characters. It kept me fascinated and wrapped up in the story line the whole time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I found no problems with Ed Sala's performance, I enjoy his voice and the different inflections he displays during the reading.
