    Story

    At 6:00 a.m. on the morning of October 3, 2009, Combat Outpost Keating was viciously attacked by Taliban insurgents. The 53 U.S. troops, having been stationed at the bottom of three steep mountains, were severely outmanned by nearly 400 Taliban fighters. Though the Americans ultimately prevailed, their casualties made it one of the war's deadliest battles for U.S. forces. And after more than three years in that dangerous and vulnerable valley a mere 14 miles from the Pakistan border, the U.S. abandoned and bombed the camp.

    What made the experience of listening to The Outpost the most enjoyable?

    Depth of the author's research and amount of detail he includes in the book.


    What other book might you compare The Outpost to and why?

    Reads like something Barry Eisler or Lee Child might have written as fiction


    Which character – as performed by Rob Shapiro – was your favorite?

    Not relevant


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

    Yes, but it is too long to do so. Took me a couple weeks to get through it.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the money and the time spent reading it. I'm just really upset that the events in the book actually happened. Hard to believe our military would do that to our own people.

    When Lincoln's estranged cousin Arthur Rhyme is arrested on murder charges, the case is perfect - too perfect. Forensic evidence from Arthur's home is found all over the scene of the crime, and it looks like the fate of Lincoln's relative is sealed.

    Audiophile says: "Long, Complex, and Good."
    "An interesting story. Glad I read it."

    If you could sum up The Broken Window in three words, what would they be?

    Relentless
    Overly detailed


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Broken Window?

    Villian keeps coming up with ways to misdirect


    What three words best describe Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance?

    Stiff
    No warmth in voice


    Any additional comments?

    Sound of reader's voice makes a big difference to me in audibles. I didn't find this voice contributed to the experience as much as others have. Nevertheless, I still recommend the book.
