Warning: narration is horrendous!

Overall
1 out of 5 stars
Performance
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-06-15

The fact that the narrator refers to it as a "performance" is laughable. His enfisis is very distracting and makes the story hard to follow. You are better off buying the printed version and reading it yourself.

Any additional comments?

Patton was the greatest general America has ever produced. The Germans were mortified by him as were the Russians. A must read for all WW2 /Patton/Stalin history buffs!...Also the reader was excellent...five star *****-

too much echo!

Overall

WARNING - A slap back echo effect has been added to the readers voice. It's a pity because it's very distracting and ruins an already weak delivery.

War stories.

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-17-10

Lot's of battles but provides very little detail or insights onto the political and social issues of the times. Also tends to embellish war in general with little mention to the far less glamorous aspects of a "civil war".

The narration was good.

A war story...

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-16-09

It's a pretty good war story and the reader is good, my only complaint is that I would have liked more history on the root causes of the war and the why when and how Korea was divided into two separate parts.

Firstly, Michael Toms is an excellent host! But I find his guest author and gay advocate Andrew Harvey's assertion that Rumi was (like himself) a homosexual and that he and his guru Shams-i-Tabrizi were somehow secretly involved in a homosexual relationship as being absurd and self serving at best. In actuality ones sexuality is irrelevant and has much more to do with the translator's perspective then Rumi's message.

Though the message was reasonably positive the reading could have been a bit more upbeat.

The narration was excellent however my children didn’t appreciate the "N" word as they had never heard it used before listening to this audio book.
