What the Critics Say

"Brilliant…. An outstanding novel and at the same time a great work of history…. Wouk has more than recaptured the period; he has given it life." (Henry Kissinger)

"Those who lived through World War II can most fully appreciate the resonances in this uncommonly readable book. But it is clearly meant – and recommended – for those who did not." (Time)

"Moving, thrilling fiction…. Wouk is a magnificent storyteller." (Boston Globe)

    Story
    "From all perspectives"

    In over 105 hours of listening time, in both of books, I never tired of hearing Kevin Pariseau's voice, which says a lot. His sometimes subtle changes in tonalities of personalities were always recognizable. But the most enjoyable part for me, was learning about WW II from so many perspectives...... the author cleverly separated the story's family into different parts of the world. My understanding of the events increased greatly, while being thoroughly entertained. I came away with a much greater appreciation for this time in history which changed so many people's lives.Highly recommended.

    "An Epic Story about the Best Generation"
    If you could sum up War and Remembrance in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, Spellbinding, Heartbreaking


    What other book might you compare War and Remembrance to and why?

    It's hard for me to even think of a book that compares to the depth of characters and attention to detail in War and Remembrance.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Pariseau – was your favorite?

    Kevin Pariseau did an amazing job with all the characters but my favorite performance was that of Pamela. She came off as dramatic and snooty, just like any well bred English girl should.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All the moments that Aaron Jastro realizes how his actions of not leaving affected the lives of so many others. It was so sad to think of how this must have affected him.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like this book, but all the women come off as flaky and of questionable morals. Definitely a book more geared towards men, but still an excellent listen.

    "Absolutely the best!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of War and Remembrance to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely, because Kevin brought all the characters to life!


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

    Kevin is the best reader of all of the books I have listened to. He deserves an award!


    If you could take any character from War and Remembrance out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    FDR or Aaron Jastrow were the most engaging and intelligent!

    Story
    "Best I've Heard or Read"
    Would you listen to War and Remembrance again? Why?

    I will, someday, listen again to this audiobook. But, I just completed and will let lie for a time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I had read and heard stories of the Jews' plight in WW II, but this just brought the horrors
    home. Plus the ongoing story of the Henry family kept me looking forward to my next
    day's commute so that I might continue to hear the story. A daily anticipation !


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

    Kevin was outstanding ! Couldn't of imagined a finer performance. I will search Audiobooks
    for another Pariseau "performance".


    Who was the most memorable character of War and Remembrance and why?

    As a man I don't know whether I should be embarrassed for saying so, but I kept
    pulling for Natalie: why didn't she go ! what will happen to her and Louis, etc


    Any additional comments?

    I first listened to Winds of War, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I naturally migrated to War and Remembrance. Both Audiobooks were outstanding ! I'm 68 and they were both
    easily in the top 10 from my perspective. I am a WW 2 reader/listener (Roosevelt, Eisenhower, B-19 fliers, etc, etc) but Herman Wouk's works were just plain excellent !

    "Great story, even greater performance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story is what it is - a fictionalized historical account of some of the main points of World War 2. Personally, I love both books and think this is a must read for everyone.

    That being said, I think the high point of this particular work is Kevin Pariseau's performance - bar none, best reading I've ever heard.
