A Voice From the Grave Audio Book Reviews


For Audio Book

 

 

  • “Great Civil War History-Mystery”

    Would you listen to A Voice from the Grave again? Why?

    I think once was enough for me.

    What other book might you compare A Voice from the Grave to and why?

    It’s not a typical mystery thriller with a current or on-going murder spree. This tells the story in current time, unravelling the mysteries at an archeological dig; and then back in time, as the events were happening at Andersonville.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not extreme, but it made me look up some factual info on the actual Andersonville and read more about the Civil War in general.

    Any additional comments?

    Strong women have always wanted to contribute to military service any way they could, even if it meant disguising themselves to do it. I think they were brave precursors to the WACS & WAVES of WWII.

  • “Good Story, Bad Narrator”

    This is a well-researched story that works well for fans of the time period (Civil War). However, the narrator sounds like she’s reading to a kindergarten class and it’s just too hard to get past. Ok, I’m not a southerner, but do all people of the old south speak so slowly they sound lobotomized? And do all southern women have to sound like little girls?

  • “Secrets live forever”

    What did you like best about A Voice from the Grave? What did you like least?

    This book offered me a real unsanatized version of what Prisioners os war endured dung the civil war. The modern story was nicely dispersed between the horrors of the past.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The psychological impact that secrets have upon families and how fear and shame impact people of all ages.

    Did A Voice from the Grave inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to do more detailed Internet research into Pow camps and the civil war. Especially regardig the camp and characters in the book.

    Any additional comments?

    I think this is an excellent story and is well worth the price even though I was not impressed at all with the narration.

  1. yep got to agree about the narration, the story probably could have been cut by a couple of hours, it seemed the older the character the slower they speak, I found myself shouting at the car stereo and finishing their sentences! Enjoyed the story though.
