    . C. “Scar” Gordon was on the French Riviera recovering from a tour of combat in Southeast Asia, but he hadn’t given up his habit of scanning the personals in the newspaper. One ad in particular leapt out at him: "Are you a coward? This is not for you. We badly need a brave man. He must be 23 to 25 years old, in perfect health, at least six feet tall, weigh about 190 pounds, fluent English with some French, proficient with all weapons, some knowledge of engineering and mathematics essential...."

    Where does Glory Road rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    High. I'm a Heinlein fan from way back. I've read Glory Road a number of times. I thought Bronson Pinchot did a great job and even though I knew exactly what was coming next he held my interest.

    After an upbringing of proper behavior and oppressive expectations, Aralorn fled her noble birthright for a life of adventure as a mercenary spy. Her latest mission involves spying on the increasingly powerful sorcerer Geoffrey ae'Magi. But in a war against an enemy armed with the powers of illusion, how do you know who the true enemy is - or where he will strike next?

    What disappointed you about Masques?

    Let me start by saying I love Patricia Briggs. I follow both the Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series and I'm picky about my urban fantasy choices. This is more of a straight fantasy and didn't grab my interest the way her other books have.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    When is the next Mercy Thompson book coming out?

    New advances in medical science and the unraveling of the human genome are providing us great insights to the aging process. We can now significantly increase our healthy longevity and live long enough to take advantage of the even newer technologies being developed. The overall deterioration of the body that comes with growing old is not inevitable. Aging is a treatable disease. So if you want to increase your chances of living a long and healthy life, maybe even becoming immortal, you need to learn what you can do today.

    Would you try another book from Walter Parks and/or Douglas R. Pratt?

    No


    What could Walter Parks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More than once the author refers us to his next book for details. I was pretty sure that this was meant to be advertising for the next books.


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    There are better books on the topic on Audible. I'm listening to Growing Young now and it's more detailed and does not refer me to future publications by the author. Check it out.

    During the 1920's, a young doctor by the name of Dr. Masterson went on a secret expedition with two of his closest colleagues and stumbled upon a second Mayan calendar that was covered in human blood in the Palenque ruins near the Usumacinta River in the Mexican state of Chiapas. Dr. Masterson couldn't believe what he had just discovered, but that wasn't all he found in the ruins. Before Dr. Masterson had a chance to call out to one of his colleagues and show him what he had just found, his torch blew out.

    This was an amateur effort. I can't figure out what was the point of the story.
