To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book came highly recommended, so I expected to like it. By the time I finished, it exceeded my expectations for so many reasons, particularly the emotional impact it left. I laughed and cried - all through it realizing the characters were real, respecting and admiring their honor, patriotism, determination and strength to prevail.
Ben MacIntyre brings his matchless story telling to a familiar story and adds new facts and perspective. A compelling and enjoyable read beginning to end. Details and characters abound in wartime imprisonment in a historic German castle. A great read in time to be a great gift.
