One of the worst books I have ever read

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

G.O.K...(God Only Knows)...very difficult book to listen to...can't believe there is someone who would enjoy this book.

Has Hitler’s Monsters turned you off from other books in this genre?

No...but I'll be more careful in the future in choosing my books.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Grover Gardner is one of the best...I'm still in awe that he could go from start to finish

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes...it would make a great starter for a fire in the hearth

Any additional comments?

As stated in most of my reviews...I walk a great deal...3 to 10 miles a day....the books I buy are in general, history books and books that have a read time of usually +20 hours...If I walk 2 hours a day...that will have me listening to a book for about 10 to 12 days....this book made walking an ordeal...listening to it as you walk made each mile seem like 2....last comment...TERRIBLE...repeat...ONE OF THE WORST BOOKS I HAVE READ.....
