    When James Bond is asked to settle a dispute over "ungentlemanly behavior" at an exclusive gambling club, the affair is embarrassing in the extreme, for the accused is the unimpeachable Sir Hugo Drax: business tycoon, popular hero, patriot extraordinaire, and head of the multimillion-dollar Moonraker missile program on which Britain's future defense depends.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Robert B. Wales says: "Same great Clancey - Great narration"

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

    Story
    (45)

    In 1861, young Mark Twain found himself adrift as a tenderfoot in the Wild West. Roughing It is a hilarious record of his travels over a six-year period that comes to life with his inimitable mixture of reporting, social satire, and rollicking tall tales. Twain reflects on his scuffling years mining silver in Nevada, working at a Virginia City newspaper, being downandout in San Francisco, reporting for a newspaper from Hawaii, and more.

    Tad Davis says: "The wild humorist of the West"

    Where does Roughing It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first and what a great introduction!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Roughing It?

    Absolutely everything. The voice was fantastic! The chapters about the Mormons and his trip to the tropics I couldn't stop laughing


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

    None. But it was simply great


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

    The time Twain became a public lecturer


    Any additional comments?

    If you ever low on your sales of audible books start by offering roughing it for free. Now I can't stop listening to books.
