Love triangle

It starts off kinda slow as you get to know the main characters, but turns into a gripping love story. It’s the kind of novel where you know it can’t end well but you’re still hoping for Annie March to make the right decision. Great depictions of war. Really fell in love with the characters by the end, as tragic as they are.

BORING

I could not get into this even after trying to concentrate and restarting 3 times. I have no idea if the story is well written because the narrator is so dreadfully, painfully slow, monotonous with pauses and ramblings in all the wrong places. Zzzzzzz Not worth even half a star

Great book for taking a nap!

As the title says, I downloaded this because I thought it would help me sleep, the narration is slow and soothing. If (like me) you are looking for a solid bedtime book to help you fall sleep, this is the one. If you're looking for a good story from the free originals, I would go with Peter Pan, that's usually a safe bet.

Couldn't get past chapter 4

The story is worth being told and heard with out the addition of needless expletives.

excellent

I thought it was going to be boring because it was a free audiobook but I was wrong! best audiobook that I have listened to that was not Stephen King. Natasha has such a dynamic, majestic voice that offers a vivid delivery of words. She could read an Allegra textbook and make it sound like a Mark Twain novel.

Unfortunate

I hate to be so blunt but I’m frustrated I didn’t read the (very few) reviews. It drags on. The narrator is slow and it’s very difficult to get into it even after trying twice... exchanging.

Not for me

I didn’t get very far into the story because I found the profanity offensive and just couldn’t get into it. The historical content was interesting as far as I went.
