    Story
    "The Sounds of War is a deep dive, no holds barred"
    What did you love best about Sounds of War?

    What impressed me the most was that someone who 'went over there' thought it important enough to remember, take home, and share with the rest of us these very subtle experiences. Having served in the military myself, I have a deep personal connection to these little things. Some I have never forgotten, others, I only recalled while listening to Sounds of War audio book. Personally, this book made me realize that many of these colorful 'things' from my own experiences had been lost to my memory because I had intentionally forgotten as much as possible. For the first time in 25 years, those colorful
    little 'things' are coming to the foreground of my memory and I find they are all meaningful. For me, Sounds of War was like a painting done by a different kind of brush!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Sounds of War is a novel with a purpose. It intends to bring the day-to-day, lowest level details about one soldier's wartime experiences home to the reader by stimulating the very five senses thru which we all experience this world.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    With regard to character development, scene setting, scene transitioning, and overall story development, Thomas Ferreolus has organized and narrated a well thought out story that was easy flowing. Characters come and go...and if you have ever served in the military, you will remember that the friends you make often come and go in one patrol. People you get to know in those long mundane hours where you have nothing to do but talk endlessly and in such short time, they move on and you never see them again.


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

    I'd recommend this book to anybody who wants to come as close to a soldier's wartime day-to-day as can possibly be achieved. An experience as told by no other book and seen in no other movie.
    I recommend Sounds of War with 5 Stars.

    Where does Sounds of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First Audio book I've listened to


    Any additional comments?

    Brought back a lot of memories. The back round audio really enhances the storyline. If you want to know what it was like over there. You need to listen to "Sounds of War"

    Story
    "The production of the audio blew me away."

    As you start this, on audio specifically you get to know that this is a story that is character driven and a production all of it's own.
    The audible edition has dogs yapping in the background. Explosions and helicopter sound bites making a read into a production.
    It is also this where the author and the audible edition loses a star. Sometimes these sound effects override the narrator and the reader misses some of the story.
    This does not happen often.
    So the story.
    It is brilliant. It takes the life of a few soldiers with their fear, humanity and failings into a war torn country where it is as hot as it can get both in F and in action.
    The story is absolutely brilliant, never stepping up on to a political rant. Never making war romantic. Never tearing in on the soldiers doing their job.
    It is simply a story of what war is like for the troops on the ground.
    I loved it. Truly loved it. Which surprised me since I seldom read stories in this genre.
    I am so glad I did.

    Story
    "Very Addictive"
    What did you love best about Sounds of War?

    Action, Suspense, Addicting


    What other book might you compare Sounds of War to and why?

    I really loved the music. The background war sounds made me think that I was right there in the middle of the war with the characters.


    Have you listened to any of F. William Baldwin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I absolutely Loved the narrator. He really made it very interesting and sometime very intense to listen too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have loved to and it was very hard to stop it, because I thought about what I heard and day dreamed about what may happen next.


    Any additional comments?

    At first when I was approached, I admit, I was a little skeptical about it, but I never turn a book away when I am offered and I always give the books a chance, but I was extremely surprised and very intrigued about this story and was addicted to it. It's one I would recommend to people to listen too.

    He's in the same league as James Earl Jones ...


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

    Great ending!

    Can't wait till it's a movie...
