    National icon Willie Nelson has evolved over the years from country music outlaw swimming against a whiskey river to a Zen-like figure of wisdom and contentment. In this autobiographical collection of life advice, The Tao of Willie, one of America's truest hearts reveals the spiritual and practical lessons learned from decades of hard knocks and good bounces.

    Story

    I would recommend it to most anyone. It is disappointing however that it misleads, the first name on the list of who it is narrated by is Willie himself which got me jazzed, however he only reads the introduction and a bit at the end. I own the hard copy of the book and thought it would be nice to listen to Willie read his book (even though I generally dislike most authors reading their own material I make exceptions for professional performers), it is very amusing after all, but I would not have wasted the money had I known he had such a small role in its narration.

    Great book, disappointing misrepresentation however!

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    I am not sure if it was by design or by chance, but Wil Wheaton as a cameo character and being the Narrator is great fun! this book satisfies my inner geek as well as my nostalgic heart!

    Max “the Wolf” is a top-notch Boy Scout, an expert at orienteering, and a master of being prepared. So it is a little odd that he suddenly finds himself, with no recollection of his immediate past, lost in an unfamiliar wood. Even odder still, he encounters a badger named Banderbrock, a black bear named Walden, and McTavish the Monster (who might also be an old barn cat) - all of whom talk - and who are as clueless as Max.

    This book is a great story by a great author. Bill Willingham can tie words together, weaving a tale that will leave you enchanted.

    The performance made me go out and buy the physical book.

    I couldn't handle the narration. Dick Hill can do some amazing voice work but I think William Shatner might have made a parody of him when he came up with his patented pause and speak rhythms.

  • World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    The book is great, I have read a lot of reviews and own a hard copy of the book itself (which I read when it was first released) but the cast makes this one of the greatest audiobooks of all time!
