Be prepared to take your medicine. I liked the book when it stuck to Gen. Patraeus. I felt it was way too political and Pro-Obama/Anti-Republican. It is not very objective in this regard. James Lurie did a very good job reading the book though.
I really enjoyed this offering from Andy Weir. It's not necessarily a science fiction story -- I consider it more of a Robinson Crusoe meets technology on Mars. It was very interesting and the characters are funny and likeable. Excellent narration adds to the humor.
I highly recommend the start to this series. It's part ancient history, part high action, with great characters. It's gritty, just a warning. I differ from some of the reviews and enjoyed the narrator. Check this out, you will not be disappointed.
A great continuation to the Quinn series. This is Quinn as we have not seen him before -- Quinn Enraged. Be prepared from some brutal surprises. Brick does good credit to Battles' work.
I highly recommend this new series from Brandon Sanderson. You will enjoy the narrator and the wonderful action. It is Epic!
This book is an excellent and thorough history of the roots of Al Qaeda. An exploration of the roots of evil starting in the 1940's. It gives great insight into the Islamist movement. Though it is lengthy, it is so interesting that it reads quite quickly.
Brett Battles does it again with this great new series. It's definitely different from the Jonathan Quinn series (which you should read too), but Logan Harper is an equally thrilling, complex, and interesting character. And also once again, Battles takes us on a thrilling ride across the globe --- all to save a girl. I could not recommend this any more!
I really enjoy the Sharpe books, don't get me wrong. But I had to go back and read this one in print. The narration for me was totally unintelligible.
This book is clearly written and incisive with lots of great historical details. Flood really brings out the friendship between Sherman and Grant. He is also a surprisingly great narrator. I highly recommend this book.
