Is there anything you would change about this book?

I found this book to be slow and tedious. Not the usual quality from Amy Tan.

I chose this book on a whim, and was totally entertained both by the story and the narrator. It is a wonderful story blending the value of traditional books and how technology can enhance the reading experience. It can be enjoyed by millenia and baby-boomers like me.

It Is What It Is

Although Ms. Rosenblatt is an exceptional narrator, she could not do much with this trite and predictable narrative. As this novel was rated as the best in this series by Nevada Barr, I will not be downloading the others.

Barbara Rosenblatt Is Amazing

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-23-09

Barbara Rosenblatt's exceptional versatility as a narrator is what makes this mediocre novel a worthwhile listening experience and the only reason I rated it 4 stars. Ms. Rosenblatt has been one of my favorite narrators for many years. In this novel, her amazing ability to create the voices of more than 12 female and male characters of different races and of various nationalities within those races is simply stunning and the only reason I persevered listening to the end of the novel. Had I been reading it in the printed version, I would not have finished this novel.

Killing Rommel audiobook cover art

Pressfield's Best To Date

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-23-09

Generally I am not a fan of fiction and non-fiction accounts of ancient or modern warfare, but I find Steven Pressfield's novels to be some of the best historical fiction published today. In the past year, I have read and listened to three of his novels, and Killing Rommel is the best so far. Alfred Molina's reading of this excellent piece of historical fiction is the icing on the cake.

Don't hesitate a moment to download this book. Do it now. You'll find it difficult to turn off your MP3 player or computer once you start listening.
