Flat Portrayal of Oppression Overcome
What if the Third Reich had won WWII? This is the question Christopher Nuttall attempts to answer on the Stormfront series, of which Ragnorak is the third instalment. I think he does a great job.
Nuttall shows a complex range of response to the regime established by Adolph Hitler in 1933 and is now seemingly thriving in its fifty-second year. From the dogmatic faith of those upholding a racially oppressive system to the unquestioning acceptance of those benefiting from it to the confusion, disillusionment and outrage of those who see the evil in the system Ragnorak and the rest of the books in the series realistically capture the horrors of the Third Reich. It is a story rich with political intrigue and hair-raising action as the characters deal with the chaos of relationships and rebellion, betrayal and salvation.
Unfortunately the narration does not live up to the story. Through the emotional highs and lows, the frenzy and calm of the story, Corey Gagne delivers the text in a flat monotone. Some stories benefit from such a deadpan rendition. However, the plot and characters of the Stormfront series are so complex that a more energetic portrayal is needed to reflect their situations and responses, at least for this listener.
Even with the low lustre presentation, Rangnorak and the Stormfront series raise questions about humanity and political systems that are worth contemplating and are well worth the listen.

Portrayal of Third Reich Germans was way off. He made them out to be Russians with their technology.
Portrayal of Third Reich Germans was way off. Spoiler alert! He made the Germans out to be Russians with their inferior technology. The Germans were ahead of the US in almost everything. Then all of a sudden they stop and the US surpasses them! Wrong, with the defeat of Russia and England boxed up and the US not officially against them, the Germans would have dominated.
