    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Would you listen to Unbroken again? Why?

    A 1000 x's YES!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Louis, oh course


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

    He was great in that he did not get in the way of the story. This story did not require any "fluff". The facts stood on their on and needed nothing else but a steady, clear voice to speak them.


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

    A story of great talent, who had super human courage and was given miraculous forgiveness.


    Any additional comments?

    Every person on the planet should read or listen to this story. Truly amazing.

    In June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader. Less then 24 hours later, only one of those SEALs remained alive. This is the story of how team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle that led to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history.

    Where does Lone Survivor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Upper half


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the serviceman pointed out that it was a God thing that his gun was always by his side even after many long falls where he lost his grip on the gun... it was always within arms reach. Truly amazing and I agree - a God thing


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Average from what I've heard from others.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks to our brave men and women who serve our country. I also appreciated the serviceman being honest about how our military has their hands tied when it comes to winning the war on terror and how the liberal mind set, when it comes to the forementioned, is the root of the problem

    What made the experience of listening to The Prince of Tides the most enjoyable?

    I am from S.C. and like the coast and the wild life there. I could relate to the setting and people. The great challenge of these children surviving their parents had me pulling for all of them with great zeal.


    Which character – as performed by Frank Muller – was your favorite?

    Tom and then Luke.


    Any additional comments?

    I have never read anyone like Pat. He is a master of the language. I loved the character development and the interesting settings and people he placed the characters in.The narrator grew on me in time. I grew to appreciate him and longed for him to continue the story.

    Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time he amassed an unparalleled resume - winning two BCS national championships; becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy; and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

    What a story

    Tim and his families passion for God


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The family together time in NYC leading to the Heisman Trophy ceremony


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

    YES!!!


    Any additional comments?

    This book challenged me to seek God with all my heart for the riches in living life His way. I love the faithfulness of the Tebow parents and Tim's as he grew up and attended college. With all the distractions/fame/success he still stayed focus on the lord. God was always faithful. Many lives have and will be impacted through this young man - and because of his parents faithfulness in how to live life - for Christ
