Fills in a LOT of missing details of The Pacific.

I loved the series "The Pacific", but, I could never figure out why after 4 years in the Marine Corp. that Leckie still remained a private! Well, this book will certainly let you know why. Told with emotion, spirit and humor. Makes you love the guy and some of his antics and attitude!

What an awesome book.

This is truly one of the best books I have heard in years! Senator Kennedy's story shows what a humble man he was. You will get answers to questions that you may have had, for years.

UGH! One of the worst....

I've ever read or listened to. Save your money! Boring, Boring and Even More Boring. Truly one of the most ridiculous books out there.

Bored me to tears....

I'm rather disappointed that I listened to "Oprah" on this one. It bored me to tears. I did force myself to finish it, just in case it picked up, but it never did. I'd save my money.

Truly, One of the best!

Excellent Story. And the narrator is AWESOME. He captures each and every single character with such authenticity that you can't help being sucked into this story. I've been looking at this audible book for months and I'm glad that I finally decided to listen to it. The story is told with such depth of each character and scene that you don't want to turn it off. I give this one 10 stars.

WORST book I've ever tried to listen to!

This was the worst $9.95 I've ever spent on a book! The story would be good BUT, all it seems to say is "I said", "He said" and "She said". The sentences are 1-5 words long, followed by "I said, she said or He said." And there seems to be an emphasis on those words which makes that the only thing your hearing! Please, DO NOT waste your money on this one! It's awful!

The absolute BEST book I've ever listened to!

You certainly will not go wrong with this book. I have never been so riveted by a book in the 50+ years I have been reading. This book has plenty of suspense and great story line, if not downright scary. (Scary because it has a real possibility of happening.) I found myself getting up in the middle of my sleep to come and listen to another chapter. Never has that happened to me. The story teller is brilliant as well. This is a book that I will listen to again and again.

One of the best I've ever heard or read...

I have literally read or listened to thousands of books. And this is truly one of the best fiction books I've ever read/heard. This is one of the very few books that has kept my full attention and I didn't want it to end. This book has everything in it, suspense, mystery, sex, and so much more. It also enlightened me even more on Vietnam and the Vietnam war. This is worth the read. It is something that I will keep and listen to again. Get it, you won't regret it.

I couldn't stop listening...

DeMille has written another riveting suspense thriller! He has given us the most diabolical antagonist that we can imagine, and returns the irascible John Corey as the wisecracking protagonist.
You can't and won't go wrong with this book!

Loved This!

My first book by this man and I absolutely loved it! Very much like CH, but, a style all of his own and a story line that is all his own. I look forward to reading/hearing his other books. You can't go wrong here. Good story line, good narrator, great who done it.
