Any additional comments?

Beyond doubt, this is a powerful and detailed account of an American tradegy. It was an experience I will not soon forget. Narrator, Dick Hill brings O'Nan's painstakingly researched story to vibrant life. Hill plays every character to perfection in an absolutely stellar performance. If you listen to books, you must listen to this one. Nothing on the printed page could convey the raw emotion as does this audio version.

What made the experience of listening to Asleep the most enjoyable?

I can say without equivocation that Christian Rummel's performance brought this book to a brilliant life. In any audio book the story may be of the greatest interest, but if the narration is lacking, then something is lost from the beginning. Asleep is one book that has it all. We have a powerfully entertaining mystery of non-fiction - those that make you hold your hand to your mouth after an audible gasp. Asleep is difficult to bookmark because you are always anticipating what awaits beyond the next page.

Any additional comments?

Medical histories are not for everyone, but if you can put away any preconceived notions, you will walk away from this one with a new-found appreciation for the subject matter.

What did you love best about Firestorm?

What was best about the story was the Historical detail. It was very interesting to learn about the history and evolution to air power.

Any additional comments?

If I could find one criticism it would be that more time was spent on the history of air power and very little on the actual events that surrounded the bombing of Dresden. Dresden's history may have been pivotal but is also somewhat distracting from the main point of the narrative, which is, of course, the details of the bombing.

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

If you watch The History Channel you may have heard - seen - this one before. Nothing new here.
