    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    There is a milestone in the evolution of every sentient race, a Tech Singularity Event, when the species achieves transcendence through its technological advances. Now the creatures known as humans are near this momentous turning point. But an armed threat is approaching from deepest space, determined to prevent humankind from crossing over that boundary - by total annihilation if necessary.

    Delta Force—the US Army’s most elite top-secret strike force. They dominate the modern battlefield, but you won’t hear about their heroics on CNN. No headlines can reveal their top-secret missions, and no book has ever taken readers inside—until now. Here, a founding member of Delta Force takes us behind the veil of secrecy and into the action to reveal the never-before-told story of First Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force).

    What did you love best about Inside Delta Force?

    I really enjoyed this book. It gave a different perspective of the war. But it lacked in depth descriptions of his training. Otherwise I would recommend it.

Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (14161)

    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.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Really a surprise!"

    Would you listen to 11-22-63 again? Why?

    Yes I would. As with almost everything, if you do it more than once you will pick and learn more than the first time around. That goes for this book.
    When you first start to read(hear) you kind of think you are going to be taken back in time, real history, (I was there and remember), but now the story starts to change and you finally can realize that this is science-fiction. I would/will read it again, even though I am not a King fan.
    By the way, this is my wife's birthday. Happy birthday, honey.


    What other book might you compare 11-22-63 to and why?

    One second after. This story is about as close to science fiction/reality as you can get.
    I loved it and will read again.


    What aspect of Craig Wasson’s performance would you have changed?

    None. I really liked him.


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

    When Sadie finally got her satisfaction.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book. You will not be disappointed.
