    Story

    ‘The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympic’ is a tireless story of triumph that endures beyond cliché and predictability. Reflective of a time where a generation of Americans was tested through the Dust Bowl and Great Depression, this true story of Joe Rantz and his eight University of Washington boat crew teammates follows their journey from humble origins detailing their sense of national pride and self determination to take on elite boat crews around the globe. The novel culminates into a true David and Goliath showdown between the Americans and the German national team at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.

    The drama within the novel lies more with the interpersonal stories than just the action on the water, but you will not be disappointed by author Daniel Brown’s balance and character development. This is a story that could easily be fraught with predictability, but it never happens. The novel has so much depth and narration so flowing, you will still be glued to the headphones with anticipation of finding out how the details of the story unfold.

    Given Edward Herrmann’s remarkable storytelling of ‘Unbroken’ and ‘The Johnstown Flood’, he is undoubtedly the best, natural choice for narrator. Herrmann brings Dan Brown’s words to life with a balance of smooth calmness, wit, and explosive theatrics in storytelling that few narrators have mastered.

    If you enjoy literary non-fiction audiobooks like ‘Unbroken’ by Laura Hillenbrand or ‘The Worst Hard Time’ by Timothy Egan, I promise that you will not be disappointed listening to ‘Boys in The Boat’.

  • Ultramarathon Man: Confession of an All-Night Runner

    "Motivation while you run!!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES!!! (And add the side note of use as tool while you run.)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ultramarathon Man?

    When Dean finished his first 50 mile run. The after effects of the run on his body and the way he tells it is more than memorable.


    Any additional comments?

    For those who do not know who Dean Karnazes is: This is a great book if your are trying to accomplish a 5k or more. Listen to this book while you run, but make sure you buffer in a little bit more time for your run. You will find that once you hit your turn around point, you will want to go a little farther. For those who have heard of Dean Karnazes: No matter what your opinion is, try the book. Remember, you can always return it. This is a book about Dean. He has done some crazy stuff hence he has the right to brag a little bit. This book has just enough in it to make you think "That would be an awesome story to have." I have heard a few things about Dean from other authors and was a bit leery about listening to one of his books. One day I took a chance to find out why certain other runners do not like him. My conclusion after listening: like any sports there are certain personalities the do no jive with others. This is a good book and not one of those where the author tells you how great he or she is all the time. It is not a poor me I was picked on as a kid and I'm a victim book like "Finding Ultra". (You can read my review on that one, it’s kind of entertaining.) This is a book about what running means to Dean and how his life has evolved as his running habits have changed. He takes you through a few personal events, without going overboard and several races where you feel like you are there with him. It is a good listen for a sunny run.

  • Tread Lightly: Form, Footwear, and the Quest for Injury-Free Running

    "Impossible to listen to!!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What disappointed you about Tread Lightly?

    The narrator was terrible. I couldn't last longer than 5 minutes and then had to turn it off. I am really disappointed with this one because I would actually like to listen to the book. I don't know who picks the narrators for the books but they should be fired for this one.


    What could Bill Larson and Peter Larson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know. I was not able to listen long enough to get anything from the book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator would pause in the middle of a sentence when there was obviously no comma then continue on. His tone was completely wrong. It was as if he was trying to do a dramatic read to a fitness book. Think of the Will Ferrell Saturday Night Live skits as James Lipton. Now take away the humor and add a monotone voice.


    What character would you cut from Tread Lightly?

    The Narrator. I can't tell you more than that because I didn't get far enough into the book


    Any additional comments?

    Please pass this to the publishing company......Think of your audience when you pick a narrator. The people who will buy this book run. We are the type of people that try and pull something extra from the world around us. We strive for a little more in life. We want personality from a book. Here is an idea, when you pick a narrator have them read a chapter and then give it to a focus group of your target audience. If the response comes back negative, then don't use a narrator. I may have an MBA but I promise you I could have figured that one out in middle school. I will even give you the person to narrate it, so you don't have to do the work. The book mentions "Born to Run", the narrator of that book Fred Sanders did a wonderful job. He gave all kinds of depth to the book, hire him.

    Story
    Would you listen to Running with the Kenyans again? Why?

    Maybe. I have listened to Born to Run 3 times. I like to listen to running book while I am out for my long runs. This one was a good story of running with Kenyan runners in their culture but not insperational. The tempo of the book was a bit slower and did not speak to me like a few other books. There was good vivid detail in the book which allowd me to see the book in my head while I ran.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dusty - Everyone has a friend that is a little crass, but is loyal as a dog.


    What does Quincy Dunn-Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very good for switching tones and staying here to add color to the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ultra. One mans push beyond all limits.


    Any additional comments?

    A really good book. I gained quite a bit of knowledge from this book. I actually got bored with my music on a 8 mile run and turned this book on. It was a good change. The I enjoyed "Born to Run" a little more but this is now definitely a favorite.

  • "A Once in a Lifetime Moment in History"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    The combination of the amazing author skills of Daniel James Brown--along with the outstanding narrating ability of Edward Hermann--blew me away!

    These nine athletes pull together in a quiet determination in preparation for the greatest achievement of their lives. They didn't have the money of some of the other teams, or the best clothing or living arrangements--what they had was some of the most remarkable resolve to maintain their goals and support for the team --each and every one of them. Not to be left out is the shell builder, George Pocock, who had as much influence on the boys as anyone. His dedication to making the perfect shell is quite a story in itself--I found out much more about this sport than I thought I would.

    Listening to the winning race was breathtaking. I knew how the race ends- we all do - but I wasn't able to keep from being nervous and cheering the American team on as though I was in the stands. That is what this narrator does--just like in Unbroken, he pulls you in.

    Everything came together at that time in history--the right team, the right coach, an amazing shell builder, and their combined efforts to achieve a once in a lifetime moment.

    A must listen!

    I found the propaganda efforts in Germany one of the most disgusting parts of the story--the fake front they were able to put up for the world during that time was nauseating -as well as Hitler's efforts to unfairly give advantages to the German team over the other's --this was a very small portion of the story, yet had to be included. It makes this story even more amazing.

    Human flight is one of the last great challenges on Earth. Not like how the Wright brothers flew, but how we fly in our dreams. This is the goal of the Wingsuit Landing Project: to soar through the sky at speeds up to one hundred miles per hour and to land without the aid of a parachute. This project is the creation of 37-year-old Jeb Corliss, Jr., a Southern Californian who seeks to emulate a mode of flight more like a flying squirrel than bird or plane.
