Another excellent presentation of an amazing story

Once again Jakes does not disappoint. a fantastic story again. You really do go through this ride with the characters and at some points the story actually has you gasping aloud. Grover narrates this brilliantly... though his English accent is hilarious and makes dick van dyke sound like a Londoner but to be fair, there are many characters and accents so he all in all he does a great job. highly recommended!

Can't believe I haven't read this before...

Others have criticized book 2 in this series as not as good as the first. I disagree, and found the story a natural extension of the first. It is, however a fairly dark story, but entertaining and captivating nonetheless.

The story was very well done. Well researched, it is what I would consider as accurate as far as can be in a work of fiction. Be forewarned, however, that this also means that terminology and attitudes of that era are also presented the same way. For those with a thin skin, this could be somewhat shocking.

Although my favourite narrators tend to be Brits, Mr. Gardner is well matched to this series. I thoroughly enjoyed his pace, inflections, and interpretations of characters.

So, keeping things short, if you have any interest in the Civil War era, and perhaps a glimpse into how the US has evolved into what it is today with regards to politics, this series may be of interest to you while simultaneously providing a darned good story.

The second is as good as the first!!!

Let me start off by saying this is a great book!! The book is better than the mini series!! John Jakes does a great job with the civil war and the family events!! I hated to lose some of the main characters but all great things have to come to an end.. With the end of the war and the start of the rebuild of Mont Royal and Charles trying to find his way with his new life and his new love this should be a great way to start the third book!! Can't wait!!!
