    "Long Time to Listen"

    This book sounded like a great idea. I am a history fan and have a particular interest in Lincoln and the Civil War. I should have loved this book. But I didn’t. It was long and had stories that were unconnected except that they occurred before or around the time of the Civil War. I didn’t enjoy the delivery and, unfortunately, the listen did not keep my attention. I am an avid listener and will stubbornly cling to a book even when I don’t care for it so the fact that I didn’t enjoy some aspect of this listen is saying something.

    I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.

    "A bit slow"

    The whole idea of this book sounded great to me. But the delivery was dry and slow. The book got bogged down with excessive detail. I guess I was more looking for war stories from the men that lived it.

    The narration was well done and enjoyable.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Sad history"
    Have you listened to any of Kevin F. Spalding’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Kevin Spalding was an easy to listen to narrator. I would definitely listen to him again.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A different viewpoint on a very sad time in the history of America.


    Any additional comments?

    "Interesting way of looking at the Civil War"

    This is not my typical genre for books, but I thought that it would be interesting. I did get an inside look at the war and how it affected everyday families and communities; not just on the battlefield, but everyday life.

    While the narrator is very clear and easy to understand, I found his reading rate slow for my listening rate. While I typically stream the books I listen to, I found this audiobook more enjoyable downloading it to my phone using the Audible app which allowed me to increase the reading rate.

    I received this audiobook free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "What a disappointment"
    What disappointed you about Long Time Gone?

    This book was just a list of names. I was expecting a story about two young men going forth into the civil war. What I got was a list of names with a back story for each. Most of which had nothing to do with the Civil War.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am going back to zombies.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

    Long Time Gone: Neighbors Divided by Civil War
    : Les Rolston

    Like the Civil War itself, this long and involved recounting of the terrible time in America's history hits at the heart of the listener.


    The narration was well done. Kevin F. Spalding did a fine retelling of war from start to finish.

    "Long Time Gone"

    An excellent account of this conflict which gives both an overall description of the war, whilst at the same time giving it a very human face.
