A Chilling Tale of Life and Death
I definitely would recommend this story to friends because it is only an hour long, so it can be listened to just about any time! In that short amount of time, the listener will follow a man who wishes for death... Or so he thinks, and ends up getting his wish to look death in the face in the war. The narration is relaxing and beautiful as well, bringing a lot of life to a ghost story!
There are more than just soldiers accompanying him. A mysterious woman with glowing eyes appears to him, and from there his adventure being face-to-face with death (and what is left behind after death) only becomes more wild!
When Devon has his conversation with a dead Tommy, and all the chaos surrounding it, as well as Devon's efforts to justify all that is happening in front of him, and why he craves death but fears it all at once, was definitely the most memorable.
I love this title, and wouldn't change it!
R. F. Whittaker does it again! As a fan of his written work, this branch into audiobooks is very exciting! His pairing with Jake Urry is absolutely perfect!
