Simply a terrific book to listen to. Jot brings the characters to life.
This one I rank in my top 5 collection.
You cannot have one favourite character in this book. You get so attached to Paulus, Otto, Zilka and Dagmar.
his accents are brilliant wich helps you distinguish wich character is wich.
2 Brothers together while worlds fall apart.
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.
Love Books and listen while working out and on the way to and from work
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
