Publisher's Summary

At the height of the air war in Europe, Captain Joe Farley and the baseball-loving, wisecracking crew of the B-17 Flying Fortress Fata Morgana are in the middle of a harrowing bombing mission over East Germany when everything goes sideways. The bombs are still falling, and flak is still exploding all around the 20-ton bomber as it is knocked like a bathtub duck into another world.
Suddenly stranded with the final outcasts of a desolated world, Captain Farley navigates a maze of treachery and wonder - and finds a love seemingly decreed by fate - as his bomber becomes a pawn in a centuries-old conflict between remnants of advanced but decaying civilizations. Caught among these bitter enemies, a vast power that has brought them here for its own purposes, and a terrifying living weapon bent on their destruction, the crew must use every bit of their formidable inventiveness and courage to survive.
Fata Morgana - the epic novel of love and duty at war across the reach of time.

Best one I have heard in some time!

I often measure the value of a story by how annoyed I feel when real life gets in the way of listening to the story, and I have been annoyed a lot this week with all the interruptions I have had while listening to this one. I know the whole time travel in war thing has been done before. However, this one is done well, very well! Another major factor in the value I place on a title on audible is the total listening length. I am always a little dubious about paying full price for a title that is under 10 hours in length. This is mainly due to the fact I find most of today's titles to be a tad slow in narration, as I result I tend to speed them up to 1.25x speed. This one is no different, I sped it up to 1.25x speed, but it is just over 12 hours in length, so it is all good! These two factors alone bode well for a positive review.

The narration is excellent. The narrator did a great job with multiple characters all with different accents both male and female. There was a couple of clicks and pops in the narration. However, not enough to cause any real grief, I didn't even bother re downloading the title to determine if it was just a corrupted download. I wouldn't have any problems with listening to Macleod Andrews again.

The blurb does an excellent job in summarising the story, and to tell you more about the story would be to spoil the plot. However, I have to say something about the ending. I loved the personal nature of it. This would have to be one of the most enjoyable endings I have listened to in a long time! This one left me very good!

This fast fatman who is now hanging out for a holiday, is giving this one the full two fat thumbs up with a very big and long fonzie 'heeeeeeey' with a smile that says 'I am like a monkey with a new banana!'

PS. I should mention that normal services will return shortly... I will return to reviewing zombie genre very soon.

PPS. Some people have tracked me on the good old inter webs and asked if I receive free copies of the titles I review, or if I get paid for reviews. I can say beyond any shadow of doubt, the answer is no I have not. Some authors have offered, but I have said no.

This book had it all

Sometimes I gamble and buy an audiobook that normally wouldn't have made it on my wish list without an effort. Fata Morgana was one of them and I enjoyed every minute of it. Each facet of the story was engaging, the dialog era-appropriate and the narration as close to perfection as you can wish for.

In short, I loved this book and I simply urge everyone to give it a go.
