Lost in Shangri-La

Best book I have listened to this year! This is an action-packed non-fiction that reads like fiction, a wonderful addition to the WWII books being written now. The author/reader has a great voice.

Silent portions

i really enjoyed the book as well except for the large sections of dead air. it wasn’t a single occurrence, but was multiple times. a good read/listen and will explore additional titles by the author.

Lost in Shangri La

Bought as an audiobook from ITunes ....first half was excellent but recording stopped after that point. My guess is that the file was corrupted in download process but there appears to be no recourse except buying another copy.
