gritty and real

(4 stars)

This was a hard volume to listen to. The story is getting a lot harder and grittier. A lot more death a lot more suffering. This climaxes in the last chapter which talks about the horrors of being a Civil War prisoner of war. Onward to Volume eight.

(3 stars)

a decent book but a few of the readers are atrocious. nevertheless, it's free so I'm not complaining!
