    Prince Roger MacClintock, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, was a spoiled rotten, arrogant, whiny, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before an assassination attempt marooned the Royal Brat and his bodyguards on the planet Marduk, and before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through 120-degree heat and five-hour rainstorms in jungles full of damnbeasts, capetoads, killerpillars, and atul-grak, not to mention hostile peoples, to make their way back to port.

    What made the experience of listening to March to the Sea the most enjoyable?

    The flow of action and the memorable characters.


    What does Stefan Rudnicki bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He reads the book wonderfully and his inflections work well for this style of book.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

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

    First time reading in any format.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oberon is a fantastic character and he is so fantastically written that I found my self rooting for him at points over the weirdest things.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Have not listened previously.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh and smile. I found myself having a ball and feeling much better. A great ride.

    In Israel and the West, it is called the Six Day War. In the Arab world, it is known as the June War or, simply, as "the Setback". Never has a conflict so short, unforeseen, and largely unwanted by both sides so transformed the world. The Yom Kippur War, the war in Lebanon, the Camp David accords, the controversy over Jerusalem and Jewish settlements in the West Bank, the intifada, and the rise of Palestinian terror are all part of the outcome of those six days.

    Patrick says: "Great overview of Middle East troubles"
    "Fantastic in depth history of the conflict"

    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful breakdown of the events leading up to, through, and after the Six day war of June 1967. It broke the events down into manageable chunks that can be digested and incorporated into the larger understanding of the story. I was impressed by the Narrator as well.
    If you are interested in history, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, or Israel then I recommend reading this book.

    This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For the last 60 years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, never disclosing its blunders to the American public. It spun its own truth to the nation while reality lay buried in classified archives. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Tim Weiner offers a stunning indictment of the CIA, a deeply flawed organization that has never deserved America's confidence.

    Michael says: "Flawed but Important"

    Would you listen to Legacy of Ashes again? Why?

    I would listen to this again and have listened too this more than once. There is so much information and so many stories that every time I read it I pick more and more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the level of detail and how it helped to give my a better picture of what happened in the past and how it helped shape the present and future.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made my in awe at points and laughing at others.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book if you love history, or spy stories, or just want to know what is going on in the world. It is a great read.
