    In Pack of Two, the author of the acclaimed best seller Drinking: A Love Story tackles a different sort of relationship. Two-time Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry, Million Dollar Baby) guides us into the life of Caroline Knapp who, after losing both parents to cancer and breaking off a two-decade long relationship with alcohol in the span of one year, struggles - and succeeds - to redefine her world. The unlikely solution to Knapp’s task was found in the form of a dog named Lucille.

    Story

    On October 7, an Inuit hunter found three California Gray Whales imprisoned in the Arctic ice. In the past, as was nature's way, trapped whales always died. Not this time. Rose compellingly describes how oil company executives, Greenpeace activists, Eskimos, businessmen, and military officers heroically worked together to save the whales. The book also features some of the more than 150 international journalists who brought the story to the world's attention. The rescue was followed by millions of people around the world and brought President Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, the General Secretary of the Soviet Union, to join forces.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author uses this as a soapbox for his personal and political agenda. He takes what could be a very heartwarming story and twists it into a rant on the evils of Greenpeace, while painting the natives as moneygrabbing indigents and the Oil corporations as altruistic saviors.
    Much of the story is sidetracked by the author using sarcasm a weapon to vent his own version of everthing from National Politics to his opinions of individuals and policies.

    Don't waste your credit.
