hobby fearsome

I delayed in purchasing this audiobook because of the bad reviews complaining about the narrator whispering or talking too quietly. I’m glad I didn’t pay attention to these, as they should have turned up their hearing aids, or put the children to bed. I listened to this book with headphones next to a loud factory machine all day and I heard every word loud and clear.

This is an excellent collection of accounts by the author who visited the men fighting in the trenches daily during the duration of the war. Easy to follow, eloquently written, and disturbingly graphic. if you have any interest in WW1 or military history, this book is right in your zone, one I will soon add to my bookshelf. Don’t let the deaf reviewers prevent you from getting this masterpiece.
