Jerks for all the delays

I will prob end up changing this review eventually...but for right now I’m so annoyed with how many months you kept delaying this release, I think it was over a year delayed? Every month I would save my audible credit for the release, always in the 3rd week of the month...then the date would come and all a sudden the release date would be another month further out. For a long time I thought it was some kind of pre order scam, or that I was legitimately crazy. I’m glad it’s finally here, but you should have made a post or something somewhere explaining what was happening. I looked and could not find anything.

Should Be Required Reading In Schools

The narrator to a few hours to get use to and really his reading was the only area of opportunity I could find. We've spent so much time and energy talking crap about the Nazis AND RIGHTLY SO but I am ashamed that our Leftist teachers, historians, media, and universities have not shown us how horrible communism is and was. Be very very careful because the stories in this series may be the future of America, if we are not careful. Just look at our Pravda style media today. Look at how they control the low information people. Look at how they can hide the crimes of the elite. If you are a parent, please listen to or read this book with your kids.

Unbelievably Powerful

This should be required reading in our schools, this could be the single most powerful tool in teaching our children about the inevitable nadir of any attempt at Marxism.

The Narrator is Growing on Me

But it's only because I've spent 50 hours listening to him. The story is still very engrossing.
