If you could sum up In No Man's Land: A Ghost Story in three words, what would they be?

Vivid, Touching, Gritty

What about Jake Urry’s performance did you like?

Jake Urry shows a lot of promise with this short story. I think he is a new narrator but he handles this very well and has a very listenable voice - I hope he narrates some longer stories and will keep an eye out for him in the future.

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

It was a strong telling of one man's struggle through a much covered event in world history. While it's hard for a writer to be original with this kind of historical material, the author manages this with vivid and sometimes daring imagery.
