Men of hope
What did you like best about this story?
I always like true stories in which the contrast between good and bad, corruption and honesty, despair and hope is so apparent.
Which scene was your favorite?
The descriptions of how and where the loot was found
Any additional comments?
The personal side of the story in the fashion of letters and notes really allows the audience to feel empathy with the people
The book is a little dry. The book is creative historical non fiction being dressed up as a novel without much success. The Narrator Jeff Harding does an adequate job, however he is tied to the writing of Robert M. Edsel who failed to create real drama, plot or character. Based on fact and probably historically correct, it still lacks the charm of the movie and comes down to just a list of facts, dates, times and stuff that happens.
This informative book makes me curious to know more. It revealed an aspect of the Second World War completely unknown to me previously.

This is the story that is currently being made into a movie with George Clooney, Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett. I actually loved that it was history that was presented like fiction, which for me made it easier to follow and more entertaining.
