    Story
    What disappointed you about Ill Wind?

    Didn't notice it was abridged, but wanted to listen in order. Really choppy and I still don't know if it was murder or suicide??!! What?! WTH? Barbara Rosenblat IS Anna Pigeon! Was so disappointed to hear a different voice.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The continuation of the storyline of Anna's life is interesting and important to me, but really paid having to listen to a butchered version of the book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joanna Gleason’s performances?

    I haven't checked yet, but hope they don't use Joanna Gleason again for Anna.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ill Wind?

    I wouldn't have cut anything else out! It's too sparse as it is.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Patricia Daniels?

    No, I won't be trying anymore of her books. I thought I was getting a ghost story and it turned out to be a treacly romance, with a terrible reader. You can't call this person a narrator, as she just plods along, reading the story. Awful book.


    Has Jewels of the Sun turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yep!


    What didn’t you like about Patricia Daniels’s performance?

    See above.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    So disappointed. Thought I might glean some insight as to what Ireland is like, but can't stomach to romance novel feel of it.

    Story
    (1719)

    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Lone Survivor to be better than the print version?

    N/A


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I usually listen during my evening commute and I changed habit and listened both ways. Very engaging...


    Any additional comments?

    Every lawmaker, from both sides of the aisle, should be forced to read this book, twice. Maybe they would rethink the ROE's that these guys have to live (and die) by.
