    He was one of the greatest figures of his generation, and arguably the greatest baseball hitter of all time. But what made Ted Williams a legend, and a lightning rod for controversy in life and in death? New York Times best-selling author Leigh Montville delivers an intimate, riveting account of this extraordinary life.

    Joseph says: "Very revealing"
    "A must for all baseball fans"
    Overall

    If you like the game or you are a Real baseball fan to your core, you must listen to this book. Ted Williams was one of a kind. The greatest hitter in the game, his relationship with the writers, war hero, crazy family life, his bizarre end, it's all here.

    The author does the research to be the authority on the splinter. It is well written, Scott Brick is a great voice, and what an extraordinary true story. This was one of a kind. Treat yourself baseball fans, you won't be sorry.

    Story

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    "Well written!"

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

    Definitely recommend. It's rare to find a writer that can weave a story like Walters with witty dialogue. The performance by Ballerini was special.

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"
    "fast start....slow finish"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    no. I think the research and story was top rate, that is until about 3/4 of the way and it just droned on and on. I lost interest


    If you’ve listened to books by Daniel Suarez before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first


    What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

    It was fine, but your chained to the content of the book, and it fizzled out.


    Do you think Kill Decision needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Promising and brilliant start. Disappointing overall.
