The book here is so short, you skip through the book, in the beginning there are some characters that start to be build and then they are never mentioned again. I will definitely read it, but this recording really disappointed me. The only cool thing is that if you have watched the movie, you get the feeling that Stonewall is reading to you.
I love the Civil war. This book gives you a quick history of the battles at the begining of the war. An unabriged version would have been better. You would have gotten a better feel for the battles and a better background of General Jackson. All in all this was a very good book to listen too.
I like this book overall. I have read all 3 of the series: Gods & Generals, The Killer Angels and the Last Full Measure. Nothing can overtake Killer Angels in its intensity, detail and true story, however, this book is fascinating for any history buff. The problem is that it crams too much (start of civil war to chancellorsville) into a small book.
I sent it back before I finished it. It just dragged for me even though it was a topic that particulary interests me. I also didn't care for the narrator's charactor expressions.
I sent it back before I finished it - it just dragged for me. Would have been better if I enjoyed I enjoyed reading about the era more. It was more that I lost interest because it is not a topic that particulary interests me in the first place. A bad choice for me - not necessarily the book.
The book itself is very good, but the narration was done on such a low tone. It was hard to hear while driving.
