  • On Call in Hell: A Doctor's Iraq War Story

    Cdr. Richard Jadick's story is one of the most extraordinary to come out of the war in Iraq. At 38, the last place the Navy doctor was expected to be was on the front lines. He was too old to be called up, but not too old to volunteer. In November 2004, with the military reeling from an acute doctor shortage, Jadick chose to accompany the First Battalion, Eighth Marine Regiment (the "1/8") to Iraq.

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

    yes, it is an interesting point of view. Having served in Iraq in 2003 with a Fleet Hospital within the combat zone, his story is very real and acurate and yet he was more involved in the urban warfare than my personal experience.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The physician's point of view. I have read other similar books but from a nurse's perspective.


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

    No

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    What did you love best about One Second After?

    It gives you an idea about what skills you need to hone - just in case our comfortable way of life should change.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Second After?

    As a part of the medical profession...we have forgotten how much medical technology has impacted on our lives and on our longevity.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I have even purchased the paperback to share with others

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    No I don't think so. Others who have read the whole series tell me to hang in there it gets better. I guess my feelings are I shouldn't have to hang in there to get to the best part of the story.


    What could E. L. James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Less email, more development of the characters other that "how perfect and hot" they are


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Fine


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

    I hated the endless emails....part of the reason I read is to get away from day to day stuff- like email.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

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

    I love all his books. They aren't normally what I had read in the past. I had picked up the 1st book years ago...pretty much out of desparation for anything to read while deployed in Iraq with Fleet Hosp in 2003. Have been a fan every since. When ever a book comes out...I pretty much tell my husband I am doing "nothing" today. His response "Oh, another Mitch Rapp book"


    What did you like best about this story?

    the intrique, the travel, that he is a survivor....


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Excellent


    Any additional comments?

    I feel like we need a hero and Mitch Rapp fits that

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    A very interesting book. Very different than what I normal listen to. However extremely interesting how habit affects our day to day life AND how retail manipulates our habits to their benefit. Who knew so much study went into our every day to day purchases

    In the morgue of a Philadelphia hospital, a group of physicians open a coffin and uncover the corpse of a beautiful young woman. What they see takes their breath away. Within days, one of them strongly suspects that he knows the woman's identity - and the horrifying events that led to her death.

    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Be an American Housewife to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Be an American Housewife?

    No, I haven't but now would consider reading more their books.
