Reviews


(5 stars)

i can usually speed or slow the playback according to the clarity and rate of speech of the reader. When there are so many readers in a book it sure makes that practice difficult.

Cuts both ways


(5 stars)

True telling of brave dedication on both sides. Within same families the hard losses and horrors tore all.

Good book


(4 stars)

Really good book but the last chapter was very hard to understand due to the readers accent.

another great book


(5 stars)

This Book Is Awesome except for the very last chapter. It's hard to understand


(2.5 stars)

There is one reader who reads this fine book like it is Jake and Jill went up a hill ....I guess you get what you pay for. Fabulous book with parts read by someone who should read lullabies to sleepy toddlers.

Great except for the last two chapters


(4 stars)

The strong accent of that reader made it hard to follow the story.
