    Tune In is the first volume of All These Years - a highly-anticipated, groundbreaking biographical trilogy by the world's leading Beatles historian. Mark Lewisohn uses his unprecedented archival access and hundreds of new interviews to construct the full story of the lives and work of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.

    What did you love best about Tune In?

    The story flows like a very well made movie. The narration is great and the story is well told. I listened to 43 hrs in a week and you know what? I can hardly wait for parts 2 and three.


    What other book might you compare Tune In to and why?

    This is a massive book that is never dull or boring. The Clive Davis book comes to mind and also Janis Ian. Just great books about great lives.


    Which character – as performed by Clive Mantle – was your favorite?

    I think He did all the voices very well,


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    So you think you know all about the Beatles? Think again.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read several books about the Beatles. They are one of my favorite Groups. This book reads better than most without letting all the details bog down the story. 43 hours..And I can't wait for the next volume,

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    Would you listen to Monster Hunter International again? Why?

    Yes. But not right away because I want to listen to the next 3 books by this authur.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter International?

    I just loved the naration and the story. Very well done.


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

    No I have not, but I assure you, if he narrated a book, i may pick it up just for his narration.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many. A surprise around every corner.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not wanted to listen to a story so much since the books by David Rosenfelt. I could not wait untill the next line or voice to come in. How much did I like it? I have never written a review until this one. I recommend this highly.
