    The name "Tom Sawyer" is synonymous with the adventures of boyhood. Bold and clever, Tom gets into and out of trouble with an ease many listeners will envy. A story beloved by children, it also has relevance for adults. Twain's beloved classic of growing up in Midwest America is as popular today as when it was first published in 1876.

    Tad Davis says: "Nostalgic fairy tale, but at times quite dark"
    "A timeless classic."

    Would you listen to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer again? Why?

    Mark Twain's timeless classic provides a sense of adventure and takes me back to my childhood. I'm so glad I chose to listen.

    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Karen Knabe says: "Truly the story of a Hero"

    What did you love best about Fearless?

    I enjoyed the intimate details conveyed in such a simple way.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    Paul Michael did a wonderful job telling the story of Adam Brown. I can't imagine anyone else doing it better.


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

    This book inspired me. I sometimes lapse in my dedication to the job because I am so far removed from the fight. This book reminded me why I do what I do. My role is a minor one, but I feel that my support to the war fighter is needed. This book reminded me that though I am not in harms way, I support those who are. My fight is easy in comparison.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    What did you love best about Across the Nightingale Floor?

    I loved everything about this book! The setting of feudal Japan provides an excellent backdrop for communicating cultural insights and sex/gender based issues. The story of these ill-fated lovers was extreemly well told by the naration performances of Kevin Gray and Aiko Nakasone. The risk and reward at stake through this relationship is painted perfectly in the setting of feuding warlords in Japan.

  • Inside Delta Force: The Story of America’s Elite Counterterrorist Unit

    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).

    Darwin8u says: "Informative & Entertaining Memoir >|< Myth"

    Would you try another book from Eric L. Haney and/or Robertson Dean?

    This book was a clear and concise account of the stand up and early history of Delta Force. It was very well written withour glorification or "cheese." I really enjoyed it and would read other books from this author.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the clear picture of the selection and training process for Delta Force.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robertson Dean?

    Although Robertson Dean's narration might have been well suited to the author's attitude, I wished for more inflection.


    Was Inside Delta Force worth the listening time?

    Definitely!
