Publisher's Summary

From America's master storyteller and writer of historical fiction comes the dramatic conclusion to the North and South saga.

The Civil War has ended, but the Hazards and Mains have yet to face their greatest struggles. Even as the embers of old hatreds continue to burn in the heart of a nation torn apart by war, a new future in the West awaits a new generation of Americans seeking a life of their own - and a place to call their own.

Filled with all of the vivid drama, passion, and action that have made John Jakes the acclaimed master of historical fiction, Heaven and Hell is the tumultuous final chapter in one of the greatest epics of our time.

    "An excellent ending."
    If you could sum up Heaven and Hell in three words, what would they be?

    One great ending.

    The overall story arcs.


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

    I have. All are excellent.


    Who was the most memorable character of Heaven and Hell and why?

    All were very good, no, great.


    Any additional comments?

    A must-have for any fans of historical fiction.

    Story
    "Gratuitous violence described unnecessarily."

    Of course this is a graphic study of the aftermath of the civil war. Very ugly. Just be aware that violence described done to women and children is not spared in any sense what so ever. This novel includes a gratuitous antagonist with a vendetta against the main character family. A waste of time in my opinion. I like historical fiction and this added antagonist is just plain raunchy violence in the story.

    "Good ending to the series"

    Realistic and mostly entertaining. Interesting on how NOT to do things when dealing with a psychopath. The author is good at keeping you hanging.

    "Fitting end"

    Most enjoyable end to the trilogy. Criticism that the book leaned to heavily towards Charles and his life are unfounded. If you enjoyed the first two books, you will enjoy this one.

    "Outstanding Tale"

    I'm sad that this tale is over as it was outstanding. I'm going to miss the adventures of the Hazard and Main families.

    Story
    "Good for a long series."

    I like a long series. This story kept me engaged 90% of the time and the narrator did not have any quirks that made it difficult to listen. He wasn't as animated as I prefer, but he did an acceptable job. I would recommend this for someone who enjoys long series and doesn't mind if it slows down from time to time.
