    "Great sequel to original"

    There were a few slow parts in this book but all in all a very enjoyable listen. This book gave me new insights to the Civil War which I did not previously have and that is also worth something.

    "Wow! Blown away! Fantastic Listen!!!"

    With this book, John Jakes has surpassed my wildest hopes. After reading the first book in the series, North and South, I did not think there was any way that the next book could or would be even better, but it was! Grover Gardner has the perfect voice for this novel. His performance was simply stellar! I cannot wait to listen to the third book in this series.

    I live in Northern Virginia and had no idea that so many places I pass through regularly and have grown up around have such deep historical significance! I will never be able to look upon my surroundings in the same way. I will always be thinking about what I heard in this wonderful story! The amount of detail and richness in this story is mind-boggling. I have become an enormous fan of John Jakes!

    If you enjoy romance, historical fiction, history, or anything to do with the Civil War, you will love this book!

    "Love and War"
    Any additional comments?

    Audiobook. Over forty hours of listening. Love and War is the second book in a three part trilogy regarding the American Civil War. Although historically accurate, the primary purpose of this story is not to convey history. It is rather to convey the effects of history of the lives of ordinary people. Sweeping and accurate, Love and War pulls the characters from North and South through the war years as human, flawed, and victims all.

    Expect the epic-tale style of writing, a different type of presentation than the modern novel. Better, in my opinion, affording the reader the opportunity to savor the time and thoughts of the characters and the author.

    Listened to this audiobook at 1.5 speed. Grover Gardner, although a terrific narrator for the series, is a bit slow for my taste.
