    Thomas Hardy, never one to be conventional, took a very unconventional moral stance in this novel, which shocked readers of the time. In doing so, he created one of the great romantic novels of all time, the story of a striking and tragic heroine who came to life for the reader as she did for the author.

    Eddie says: "excellent novel and reading"
    "Clearly one of the Great Books and very well read."
    Overall

    Jill Masters brings Hardy's masterpiece to life although the technical quality could stand some improvement. Her treatment of Tess is remarkable and I am grateful to Audible for making this experience possible.

    Story

    On April 6, 2003, 26 Green Berets, including those of Sergeant First Class Frank Antenori's Special Forces A-Team (call sign Roughneck Nine One), fought a vastly superior force at a remote crossroads near the village of Debecka, Iraq. The enemy unit had battle tanks and 150 well-trained, well-equipped, and well-commanded soldiers. The Green Berets stopped the enemy advance, then fought them until only a handful of Iraqi survivors finally fled the battlefield.

    Tomio says: "Excellent First-Hand Accout of SF in Iraq"
    "Well written - Great Book"
    Overall

    Frank Antenori puts together a well written narrative. Well written meaning the organization and structure of his thoughts demonstrate real skill in writing. Some books of this genre are written on a Jr. High level. I would like to say thank you to Frank Antenori for having the courage to kill the enemy, not be conflicted about it, and for telling his story.

  • Trigger Men: Shadow Team, Spider-Man, the Magnificent Bastards, American Combat Sniper

    Combat veteran and author Hans Halberstadt takes listeners deeper inside the elusive world of snipers than ever before, from recruitment and training to the brutality of the killing fields. Based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews, Halberstadt gets inside the sniper mind and shows how snipers think and interact with each other, how missions are planned and executed, how the weapons work, and even what happens when a bullet finally strikes its target.

    There are only a few hundred snipers from all the services put together in combat at any one time, making this true inside story a rare and important event.

    Leostriple says: "One Shot, One Listen"
    "Brutally Repetitive"
    Overall

    While I am very grateful for the work these Soldiers and Marines do, this book was repetitive to the point that I found myself thinking of other books I have listened to while listening to Trigger Men. Here's the book in a nutshell: Snipers are misunderstood and often poorly used. Repeat twelve times then shelve.
