I really enjoyed the way this book was played out. The short stories of each individual melded into a whole. I found it fascinating and disturbing. Makes one not want to visit Chicago.

Overall it was good.

My therapist recommended this book and it gave me some eureka moments.
Overall it explained many different personalities and traits of abusers.
It was heavy on term and acronym clarification.
It was very skinny on how to get your life back on track and suggested therapy. Well, that's why I'm in therapy.

Yay!

It brings to mind the expansive world of Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings. It make me wish JK Rowling would create more books for the wizarding world.
Great book!

Sardonically sardonic

The story was good, narrator awesome (as usual)
I enjoyed this book...here's the catch...sort of. There were a couple of things that annoyed me about it.
1. He said sardonically, he thought sardonically, he said with a sardonic smile. I am 52 years old and I'm pretty sure that if you added up all the "sardonics" from the thousands of books I've read (listened to), it would not equal how many times this word was used in this book.
2. Women are portrayed as being teary eyed, overly emotional and dramatic . Being a woman I kept rolling my eyes and muttering sardonically "Oh Puhleeeze"
Storyline excellent and if you can get past all the sardonics and twitty twits, it's a light listen.

A deviation from my regular genre and I am glad I did. Action and adventure from beginning to end.
Historically accurate as well.
I highly recommend the Crash Dive series.
Craig DiLouie and RC Bray made an awesome team.

R.C. Bray is by far the best narrator in the business. He brought Craig DiLouie's Crash Dive to life. I could almost smell the diesel fumes and feel like confinement of the submarine.
Great deal, 3 excellent books for 1 credit. Can't wait to start the next 3.

OMFG!!! FANTASTIC!

From start to finish, first book to last, an amazing thrill ride!!! Now my favorite series of all time! The action, humor, characters, ups and downs make Arisen the best series of novels in this genre.
If I could give it 10 stars I would.
I listened to this last one, savoring every word because I didn't want it to end.
The characters are fantastic and over the last few months they have been an integral part of my day. I'm sad these books are over. If I didn't have a plethora of new books waiting, I'd start these all over again.
Hooray and kudos for Mr. Fuchs and another frickin GREAT job by Mr. Bray!

Nonstop action! When you think it can't get better...it does. RC Bray brings Fuchs characters to life. Great story, awesome narration!
