What did you love best about The End Has Come and Gone?

Main character's personality is realistic and the interactions between characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Main Character, like the way he thinks.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Runnette?

Ray Porter from Joe Ledger series. Sean Runnette sounds like he is on Prozac. Seriously, this is a suspense post-apocalyptic story about an ex-Marine fighting for survival and the narrator sounds like the depressed robot from "Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe." A little energy would be nice. The difference between the main character's dialogue and the narrator's depressed, Prozac induced, auditory is huge.

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

Fun story to forget about life for a while.

Any additional comments?

I read Post-Apocalyptic stories so I don't have to think, have to think too much at work and in real life. Just retreat and enjoy a story, nice break while working out or driving. This series is good for that. If you are looking for realism or answers to the worlds problems, this ain't it!

What made the experience of listening to The Yanks Are Coming! the most enjoyable?

The book concetrated on the people, not the timeline of the war. Too many histories simply tell what happened. By having a better understanding of the people that actually took part, we can learn more about their success and failures.

What did you like best about this story?

How the book showed how the main characters in the war came to be the people we only know by name.

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

Eddie Riddenbacher (sp?) and how he lived and conducted business. Very eye opening.

Any additional comments?

Very good book, the experience that America's future leaders gained in WWI is often overlooked. Well worth the time.

Virtually all Americans above a certain age hold strong opinions about Douglas MacArthur. They either worship him or despise him. Now, in this superb book, one of our most outstanding writers, after a meticulous three-year examination of the record, presents his startling insights about the man. The narrative is gripping, because the general's life was fascinating. It is moving, because he was a man of vision. It ends, finally, in tragedy, because his character, though majestic, was tragically flawed.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, Douglas MacArthur comes from a time when Americans thought mush differently than we do today. We need more of it!

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

Made me wonder could Americans today overcome what we suffered through in the past? The MacArthur's of America's past were visionaries that also had the ability to carry out their visions. They thought differently than what we see today. We may need more of them now!

Any additional comments?

I belief that every American school needs to teach more about men such as Douglas MacArthur, they could learn much from his successes and failures. If nothing else, the way he handled Japan after WWII is a lesson we all should learn.
