I read Ivan Doig's "the whistling season" and really liked it. It was well thought out, indepth and had well developed charactors. Based on a good premise and was fun to read.
The Eleventh man didn't start well for me. I didn't care for the narrator, his voice sounded flat and monotone.
I did like the story in the beginning, the talk about the football team and the hard coach, but once the war started it just seemed to forced and contrived and didn't have any feeling and depth to it. I knew what the outcome was going to be.
After listening to the book for a while I did get used to the narrators voice and did not distract me as much as in the beginning. He will never be a favorite to listen to. In the future I will have to weight how much I want to listen to a book if he is the narrator.
I recommend that you preview the book to see if you like what you hear.

I couldn't finish it. It didn't seem to have a point. Just lots of people dying in different situations. Don't bother. I liked another book by Ivan Doig and took a chance on this one.
