    In February 1966, U.S. Navy pilot Dieter Dengler was shot down over "neutral Laos". He crashed deep in territory controlled by North Vietnamese army regulars and the communist Pathet Lao, who would eventually capture him and hold him prisoner in a fortified jungle prisoner-of-war camp.

    Matthew says: "Extremely interesting and well-written!"

    A great story, Deter has a zest for life and no one is stopping that. Narrator does a great job.

    Very funny, and enjoyable! Even better since the author is the narrator.
    His story telling is so very funny, I must read his other books!!

  • Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

    Story

    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    Teddy says: "Just Plain FUNNYYYY!!!!!!!!!"
    "Are you there Vodka, it's me Chelsea?"
    Overall

    Funny as usually, the stories are short and hilarious. It's nice to hear the author read their own book.

  • In the Spirit of Crazy Horse

    Story
    (25)

    On a hot June morning in 1975, a fatal shoot-out took place between FBI agents and American Indians on a remote property near Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in which an Indian and two federal agents were killed. Eventually, four members of the American Indian Movement were indicted on murder charges in the deaths of the two agents. Behind this violent chain of events lie issues of great complexity and profound historical resonance, brilliantly explicated by Peter Matthiessen in this controversial book.

    Darrin says: "Good Story But Too Much Detail"
    "In the Spirit of Crazy Horse"
    Overall

    A good story but hard to follow. When the narrator tries to sound like an Indian, it's a little creepy.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Unbroken"
    Overall

    A must read, Louis is great human being that is devoted to his country and life. The narrator is fantastic!
