Where does Gardens of Stone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The book is very good and interesting. There's a problem, which is probably caused by the editing of the recording.
In the chapter 25, minute 5,20 ( according to the recording order, not the book order ), suddenly you get the same part of the book that appeared some hours before.
This repetition lasts until the minute 14, which is the end of the chapter 25, and then the story continues correctly with chapter 26. The main problem is that you don't know if this mistake implies that you got the wrong recording during these 9 minutes and you are missing the good one, therefore missing a part of the book.

I actually heard about this book during a radio book review and I sought it out. Honestly, I'm an audible vetran and this book is the Usain Bolt of audio book world, it's sheer gold.
It's such a straight forward, well narrated story of heroism and guts that it is quite simply, astounding. It's written in an almost modest, apologetic way. To all those people of that time involved in the French Resistance, I salute you. To a man and women you should all tell you tale.

I loved this book and was utterly gripped. It was beautifully read with a wonderful transition at beginning and end from an elderly voice to the main narrator, which in itself was moving. This is a true story about a young Anglo-French boy growing up during the Second World War and his desperate need to make some impact against the occupation. His adventures begin in a low key fashion but cause him to be arrested; later he is recruited for the Resistance itself. It has the feel of a novel because it seems almost impossible to be true; and yet, of course, it is. It's one of the best books I have heard for a long time, and puts the sentimental novels set in occupied France to shame!
