loved it! Same natrorator as the first book, excellent accents performed for different characters, and long and windy plot with all sorts of side stories usually left out of main stream historical depictions.
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.
I found this novel both entertaining and enlightening. Well written story and performance was superb! Can't wait to hear the next in the series.
A very good follow-up to the first book. Liked the characters. Loved the details. Vivid, lusty, touching at times, too.
I love this series and the characters are rich and real. The historical facts in this book make you feel like your really in the time period with names you recognize and facts you know.
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.
