Really well written and engaging story. Even though the novel is a bit dated, the science explored is still quite relatable to what’s in use today. Scary to think that an extraterrestrial virus could slip though the cracks in this way! Really good narrator! David, Australia

At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, along the lonely stretch of cells known as the Green Mile, killers such as "Billy the Kid" Wharton and the possessed Eduard Delacroix await death strapped in "Old Sparky". Guards as decent as Paul Edgecombe and as sadistic as Percy Wetmore watch over them.

Brilliant story, beautifully told. Stephen King at his very storytelling best. I was sad when the book eventually finished!

The war with Germany is over. All that is left to secure world peace is to crush the Japanese. HMS Seahound has crept through a minefield in Asian waters to land an armed force of soldiers in enemy territory. Now she lies silent, waiting, on the seabed only a few hundred yards from shore. Inside, the heat is unsufferable, the tension sickening....

Using his own experiences, log books, and correspondence with other U-boat crewmen, Hans Goebeler offers rich and personal details about what life was like in the German Navy under Hitler. Since his first and last posting was to U-505, Goebeler's perspective of the crew, commanders, and war patrols paints a vivid and complete portrait unlike any other to come out of the Kriegsmarine. He witnessed it all, from deadly sabotage efforts that almost sunk the boat to the tragic suicide of the only U-boat commander who took his life during World War II.

A beautifully crafted and entertains account of life in a German uboat during ww2. Regardless of which side of the conflict you align to, the crews of uboats were incredibly brave men. Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in naval warfare or ww2 history.
