If endless cliches and purple prose are your preference, this is a great audiobook. Otherwise, you might want to stay away--it makes you roll your eyes so much you need a bottle of aspirin. I am willing to tolerate bad prose in an audiobook far more than in print (I even enjoyed The Da Vinci Code), but this was just too much. I lost count of how many times a person experienced a "chill down his spine."

This book is an interesting read, but seemed somewhat lacking in depth. As a fan of the Civil War, I was hoping to find a gem, instead I found over-used phrases and a weak ending. The author seems to make an attempt to create an equal to "Gods and Generals" or "The Killer Angels", but fails to do so. Not enough description of the actual battle, and too much focus on what seems to be irrelevant characters.
Overall the book was okay, but wasted the potential to be a great novel.
