    "THE BEST READ THIS YEAR"
    Where does Two Brothers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one I rank in my top 5 collection.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    You cannot have one favourite character in this book. You get so attached to Paulus, Otto, Zilka and Dagmar.


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

    his accents are brilliant wich helps you distinguish wich character is wich.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    2 Brothers together while worlds fall apart.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't get emotional in books until I read this one. I find myself pondering over it for days. It really plucked at my emotional heart strings. Thank you for a great listen.

    Story
    "as good as The First Casualty"

    I find Ben's historic novels fascinating. This is well written as well as a great story (i was born in Germany but move away 30 years ago and therefore I could be a bit biased to the story).

    The main characters might be a bit 1 dimensional but it seems to work for the story and you don't notice it unless one sits back to analyse the story (like when writing a review).

    If you like his previous book about WW1 then you will love this one. If you have not read that just don't expect black adder and you will get a lot out of it
