    (12)

    At the high point of a soaring career in the US Army, Lt. Col. Mark Weber was tapped by General David Petraeus to serve in a high-profile job within the Afghan Parliament as a military advisor. Within weeks, a routine physical revealed Stage IV intestinal cancer in the 38-year-old father of three. Over the next two years he would fight a desperate battle he wasn't trained for, with his wife and boys as his reluctant but willing fighting force. When Mark realized that he was not going to survive this final tour of combat, he began to write a letter to his boys, so that as they grew up without him, they would know what his life-and-death story had taught him.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tell My Sons... to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How much this man loves his sons and wants to share some important things with them. And that they will have this book after he's gone.


    What about Lt. Col. Mark M. Weber’s performance did you like?

    That it was him reading it and sometimes he got choked up which made it all the more real.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, took me awhile to digest it.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the read or listen.

    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    Kelli N. Perkins says: "Still Thinking About This Tale Weeks After"
    "Loved it but it was a teeny bit predictable"

    Would you listen to Defending Jacob again? Why?

    I usually don't listen to stories twice, so, probably not but if it came out in a movie, I'd go see it.


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

    No, but he was very good.


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

    It made me feel for the parents. Their anguish over their son was palpable and I could certainly relate to feeling responsible for everything their son might have done.


    Any additional comments?

    I should have said that only parts of the book were predictable, the ending wasn't what I expected at all.
