Gods and Generals

Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Jeff Shaara

Narrated By: Stephen Lang

Date: February 2003

Duration: 3 hours 47 minutes

Summary:

The New York Times bestselling prequel to the Pulitzer Prize–winning classic The Killer Angels
 
In this brilliantly written epic novel, Jeff Shaara traces the lives, passions, and careers of the great military leaders from the first gathering clouds of the Civil War. Here is Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, a hopelessly by-the-book military instructor and devout Christian who becomes the greatest commander of the Civil War; Winfield Scott Hancock, a captain of quartermasters who quickly establishes himself as one of the finest leaders of the Union army; Joshua Chamberlain, who gives up his promising academic career and goes on to become one of the most heroic soldiers in American history; and Robert E. Lee, never believing until too late that a civil war would ever truly come to pass. Profound in its insights into the minds and hearts of those who fought in the war, Gods and Generals creates a vivid portrait of the soldiers, the battlefields, and the tumultuous times that forever shaped the nation.

Genres:

  • Alexander Stoyanov

    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.

  • Christopher Stringer

    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.

  • Mel Longano

    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.

  • Joon Pak

    The book itself is very good, but the narration was done on such a low tone. It was hard to hear while driving.
