    An iconic figure in the history of rock and pop culture (inducted not once but twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), Neil Young has written his eagerly awaited memoir. Young offers a kaleidoscopic view of his personal life and musical career, spanning his time in bands like Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Crazy Horse; moving from the snows of Ontario through the LSD-laden boulevards of 1966 Los Angeles to the contemplative paradise of Hawaii today.

    Where does Waging Heavy Peace rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorite biographies. I felt like i was sitting down with Neil Young as he told me stories about his life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Neil Young. Listening to the book brought me closer to who the man is instead of just the guy on the records.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Just listening to Neil describe his passion for not just his music, but all music.


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

    That would be nice, if a little impractical. The narrative aspect of it was a nice change from most biographies I have read.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    Steven says: "Not Your Ordinary Western Novel (Series)"
    "Can't wait to read the next in the series!"

    Would you listen to The Cold Dish again? Why?

    I will probably re-read this sometime in the future. It was that enjoyable. The story, the character development and the narration were excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cold Dish?

    The ending took me totally by surprise. No way was I expecting that.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final scene was probably my favorite.


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

    Very funny in places. It was great to witness the development of the major characters and get to know them as people.

    Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War historian James McPherson provides a historic tour through Gettysburg, one of our nation's most visited cities, and the site of the bloodiest and perhaps most consequential battle ever fought by Americans. Listeners will be transported by McPherson's meaningful reflection, historical description, and his intimate stories from his own experiences at Gettysburg.

    William says: "Nice for what it is."
    "Perfect for a Battlefield Tour"
    Overall

    If you are planning to visit the Gettysburg Battlefield, this is the book that you need to have with you! Listen to it before your visit and then have it ready as you make your way through the tour.

  • The Last True Story I'll Ever Tell: An Accidental Soldier's Account of the War in Iraq

    John Crawford joined the Florida National Guard to pay for his college tuition; it had seemed a small sacrifice to give up one weekend a month and two weeks a year in exchange for a free education. But one semester short of graduating, and newly married, he was called to active duty, to serve in Kuwait, then on the front lines of the invasion of Iraq, and ultimately in Baghdad. While serving in Iraq, Crawford began writing short nonfiction stories, his account of what he and his fellow soldiers experienced.

    Stephen says: "You can't handle the truth"
    "An honest, real account of the Iraq War"
    Overall

    This book is a must read by everyone. It does not matter what your position on the Iraq war might be. This Citizen Soldier gives a very honest description of his tour in Iraq. The good and the bad. More than anything, I think it reveals the price that our soldiers pay for their service. My thanks to John Crawford for his service, his sacrifice and his candor.
