    Little Bighorn and Custer are names synonymous in the American imagination with unmatched bravery and spectacular defeat. Mythologized as Custer's Last Stand, the June 1876 battle has been equated with other famous last stands, from the Spartans' defeat at Thermopylae to Davy Crockett at the Alamo.

    Stanley says: "So enjoyed the re-visit to this historical battle."
    "Great, great listen."

    Mattie Ross, a 14-year-old girl from Dardanelle, Arkansas, sets out to avenge her Daddy who was shot to death by a no-good outlaw. Mattie convinces one-eyed "Rooster" Cogburn, the meanest U.S. marshal in the land, to ride along with her. In True Grit, we have a true American classic, as young Mattie, as vital as she is innocent, outdickers and outmaneuvers the hard-bitten men of the trail in a legend that will last through the ages.

    Tommygaus says: "So worth it!"
    "A classic"

    Now at last Keith Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere....

    Jesse says: "Ins and outs"
    "Great listen"

    What made the experience of listening to Life the most enjoyable?

    Very interesting and entertaining story with a great performance by Joe Hurley. Johnny Depp was a great addition as well, too bad he didn't narrate the entire book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Life?

    Too many to name just a single moment.


    Have you listened to any of Johnny Depp and Joe Hurley ā€™s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    It's only rock-n-roll, but I like it!
