    Story
    (2379)

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions.

    "Narator Poor Choice, heavy country accent"

    Where does American Sniper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the middle


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Author, it is a story that is best told by the man who experienced it


    What didn’t you like about John Pruden’s performance?

    It made him sound like a simple country bumpkin, not what he sounds like in TV interviews on Connan and O'Rielly


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Open scene when he has to kill his first human to protect others.

  • Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture

    Story
    (304)

    From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. Now presiding over Bravo's reality-TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels and All My Children - and to his mother, who received daily letters from him while he was at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

    Roberta says: "If you're depressed, listen to this book!!!"
    "Andy is a true one of a kind"

    Story
    Would you listen to Most Talkative again? Why?

    I already have! He reads his own story and you feel like you are right there in the club house just hanging with Andy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Most Talkative?

    When Andy comes out to his college room mate it brought me to tears. Andy tells it all with his wide eyed fear, just wanting to still be loved by his family and friends.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are too many to list. Andy's life in showbiz is filled with celeb meetings and he is forever the consumate fan.


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

    I did not want it to be over.


    Any additional comments?

    Andy thanks for reading your own book and sharing all that is personal as well as your fascination with celebrity, reality and everything in between.
