    Story
    (1234)

    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've read a lot about WWII, but this story follows 2 pilots on either side of the war and was a very good book. Highly recommended.

    Franz Steigler.


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

    Makes the characters come alive


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

    A lot more sympathy and understanding of the German pilots during WWII.

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The new characters and plots are hard to follow. Too many sharp bends.


    Would you be willing to try another book from George R.R. Martin? Why or why not?

    I am halfway through the book and am considering quitting the series. I enjoyed the first 3. This one I am not enjoying. It's one thing to kill a character or two, but to keep killing off the best characters doesn't make me want to read any more.


    What aspect of Roy Dotrice’s performance would you have changed?

    If Roy was asked to come back and do the performance (in replacement for John Lee's), then he should have at least listened to his previous works and kept come consistency. Arya Stark's voice is completely wrong. She sounds like the wildling from the 2nd book. Or an old hag. Not a 10 yr old girl.

    Why the change from Pe(TIRE) Baylish to Peter? Hard to follow. Not to mention his voice changed from a weaseling, cunning tone that Little Finger was to something close to Lord Tywin or Lord Robert. Just changes the whole look of the character in my mind.


    Could you see A Feast for Crows being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO!

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What did you love best about 11-22-63?

    Although I read a lot of Stephen Kings growing up as a kid, I haven't read a lot of his books lately. Some fo the past few I wasn't that thrilled about, but this story intrigued me. I think had I read the book I would have been turning page after page anyway but the narration performance by Craig Wasson was OUTSTANDING. I've listened to a dozen audiobooks, and I would have to say that was the best. All of his voices made the characters come to life even more than the excellent writing King put in. I couldn't stop listening. Awesome book and a must read even for the non-King fanatics.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    Well, that would be giving it away! Let's just say I wasn't disappointed with the end and I enjoyed the plot thoroughly.


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

    As stated above, the voices he used as he flowed in and out of the dialogue was impressive.


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

    Much like the


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it! You won't me sorry.
