    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not! Learned some new facts, regarding Oswald, little new about JFK. Heard a different perspective, not pleased with narrators delivery


    Would you be willing to try another book from Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard ? Why or why not?

    Don't believe I'll waste the time


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bill O'Reilly’s performances?

    Not impressed with delivery at all, less than pleasing tone and cadence


    Do you think Killing Kennedy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, Lack of evidence to support differing theories negate the need

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to No Easy Day the most enjoyable?

    Background, lead in, allowed you a perspective from which you expect that you know the lead character. The training synopsis gives insite and sets you up to compehend the attitude that will prevale throughout the Seals. That said you now feel their high expectations from themselves and their commerades, along with the increased room for dissapointments.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Outcome


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

    I have not. Enjoyed his pace and presentation,articulate and easy to follow. Hope that the subject matter that drives my purchase decisions cross paths with his projects again.



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

    No laughing and no crying, I had a few "knotted up gut" moments and some emotions whelling up inside experiences within.


    Any additional comments?

    I've gone from long periods of K. Vonnegut to historical novels and now evolved to more non-fiction without knowing what will catch my fancy. Looking for an unabridged version of William Least Heat Moons, "Blue Highways"
