I had seen the movie, but the book give so much more detail on why things are the way way they are in Macon. I enjoyed the book a lot .

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The book could have discussed General Patton's challenges during this battle.

What could Leo Barron have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Don't try to sell a book by putting a popular generals name on the cover!

Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Weiner’s performances?

Narration was fine.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The book should have been from the German point of view.

Any additional comments?

I enjoy history book and especially books on WWII but was a little frustrated with this one, since the title of the book says it is about General Patton. The story spends all its time discussing German troop movements! I will be very careful about buying books that claim there about General Patton in the future.

What disappointed you about New Earth?

We travel eight light year to encounter more humans...really?!?

What was most disappointing about Ben Bova’s story?

This is the author who brought us "Jupiter" and "Leviathan" so the aliens presented in this story are a big disappoinment for me.

What three words best describe Stefan Rudnicki’s voice?

His narration is fine as always.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

I am a big Ben Bova Fan, but this is not an example of his best work.

Would you try another book from Jay Lake and/or Katherine Kellgren?

I don't think so.

Has Endurance turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, between the story and the performance I just found I could not get off the first chapter

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I found her reading performance as artificial.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I did not get far enough to find out.
