    The year is 1924 and the race to summit the world's highest mountain has been brought to a terrified pause by the shocking disappearance of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine, high on the shoulder of Mt. Everest. By the following year, three climbers - a British poet and veteran of the Great War, a young French Chamonix guide, and an idealistic young American - find a way to take their shot at the top.

    He did a good job with the German language and accents.


    Any additional comments?

    Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine. The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder....a bounty that has never been found. As they follow the trail, the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of treasure hunters.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

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

    I put off listening to this book because I have read several others on Lincoln's Assassination, but I was pleasantly surprised. This book is an account that is concisely written without a lot of unnecessary sidebars.


    What other book might you compare Killing Lincoln to and why?

    This book has an excellent narrator and does not bear the weight of long, boring, and unnecessary side stories. I have read several; too many too list here.


    What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

    He has a pleasant voice and his radio and television experience makes him sound at ease.


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

    A bright and shinning star whose life was tragically cut short! I still can't believe that it happened and wonder why there was not stronger security.

    An enzyme that will dramatically prolong life has been discovered 2,000 feet down in the North Atlantic, in an area known as "Lost City". But why are the people attempting to harvest it getting killed? Why are the scientists in a remote Greek laboratory disappearing one by one? To Kurt Austin, leader of NUMA's Special Assignments Team, and his colleague Joe Zavala, it's clear they have their work cut out for them, but it may be even bigger than they think.

    Story
    What did you love best about Lost City?

    The detailed account of the history of the Fauchard family over the centuries.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Skye Labelle, who would not not love a beautiful and sexy female soviet spy?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The early part of the book where it describes the research complex below the ice and what happens there.


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

    Yes, but I try to enjoy books by reading or listening to them slowly.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to listen to Scott Brick recordings of unabridged versions of the first 4 NUMA Files Books; Serpent, Blue Gold, Fire Ice, and White Death.

    Early in 1968, a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine sank in the waters off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Compelling evidence strongly suggests that the sub sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile.

    Story
    What did you like best about Red Star Rogue? What did you like least?

    The detailed account of the sinking of the Soviet Sub K-129 in 1968. The author uses critical thinking and reasoning skills to back up his theory regarding what was the apparent cause for the sinking.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The detailed account of the sinking of the Soviet Sub K-129. At times the account gets bogged down in too many details.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, it appears to match.


    Could you see Red Star Rogue being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It has already been made into a pretty good movie (Phantom, 2013).

  • An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa (1942-1943): The Liberation Trilogy, Volume 1

    The liberation of Europe and the destruction of the Third Reich is a story of courage and enduring triumph, of calamity and miscalculation. In this first volume of the Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson shows why no modern learner can understand the ultimate victory of the Allied powers without a grasp of the great drama that unfolded in North Africa in 1942 and 1943. That first year of the Allied war was a pivotal point in American history, the moment when the United States began to act like a great power.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Rick Atkinson and/or George Guidall?

    Undecided; this book chronicles some interesting background information, but it seems like every chapter details the mistakes made by allied forces. After listening to the first 2 parts, I find it difficult to believe that we ever won the campaign in Africa. The narration is average, but I expected to hear more details of combat.


    Has An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa (1942-1943) turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I will look for other World War 2 books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't have any issues with the performance, just the book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Of course the allies made mistakes, but what did they do correctly? What good decisions were made? How about a few more stories of heroism?


    Any additional comments?

    The author appears to have done a great deal of research. He does reveal some interesting details and background information, but i was unable to finish the book.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Exodus Quest to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the complete print edition.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Will Adams? Why or why not?

    Yes, I have already enjoyed "The Alexander Cipher", which I liked a bit better.


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

    I don't think I have, but I did enjoy his performance.


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

    The hostage scene seemed to be terrifying realistic.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not care for the attempt to portray the pharaoh Akhenaten and Moses as one in the same.

    What did you love best about Star Trek Movie Tie-In?

    The added detail to the story that the movie left out. It fills in some gaps and helps you to better understand the movie.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    James T. Kirk, he is a man of action.


    What three words best describe Zachary Quinto’s voice?

    Not good to imitate a female (Sorry, 6 words)


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

    Star Trek on steroids.

    Zachary Quinto does a good job with male characters, but not with female characters.

    Egyptologist Daniel Knox's lifelong fascination with Alexander the Great and his tomb, a fabled wonder of the ancient world, could be the death of him. After construction workers excavating in Alexandria expose a catacomb dating back to ancient times, Knox eagerly sneaks in to scout the cavernous and dusty site. Among the relics he finds clues that may solve one of the world's greatest mysteries: the last resting place of Alexander the Great.

    What made the experience of listening to The Alexander Cipher the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy adventure books that involve archaeology. This is similar to Boyd Morrison series of Tyler Locke thrillers like "The Ark".


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot builds slowly and reaches an exciting climax in the last few chapters.


    What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed his voice and he did an excellent job!


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

    When they finally find Alexander the Great's Tomb.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to listening to the next book in the series "The Exodus Quest". I hope that Will Adams will write more books. I would have given it 5 stars if there wasn't some many "F Bombs".
