    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    PLOT: Seal Bio and the plan to take down Bin Laden~

    Mark Owen is an AKA~ pseudo~to HIDE the idenity of a real life Navy Seal who was Part of the SEAL TEAM 6~ Anit-Terrorism Navy Seals~ Owen who has a hero worship of Seals from his youth. Getting to be a SEAL is no easy task. They are the elite of the elite both physically and mentally. TEXT book is the phrase he uses to perfect his sit ups and mental strength. He outlines the training in details but ADDS his own human side which keeps us interested. This drags at first. AFTER all it is a 6 hour audio and part way through brings us back to the PLOT and and deeds of Bin Laden. the HEART POUNDING trip into the Bin Laden Compound to" GET HIM"~ is first rate and keeps you glued to the story. WE learn details we did not read or hear before. And CLEARS UP the inaccurate news reported by the press of the mission. BETTER than I expected. THE "details" are what ADDS the very human faces of REAL life SEALS and YOU have a 5 STAR audiobook. Plot is first rate and READER is 4 STARS~ and over all 5 STAR. I was skeptical all the HYPE would live up to the reality but I give this over all a 5 STAR for the mission alone and close up LOOK into the mission and life of a Navy SEAL~ ** THE AUTHOR details that he is using NON RESTRICTED MILITARY INFO ALSO he claims that all details involving seal activity has been published before can be found in published forms (internet or books or newspapers).and he also states an independant expert has verify all material used in the book was non restricted. This info is stated in the forward of the audio. VERY good STORY.

    When the call came in over the radio, Sheriff's Deputy Rafe Franco thought he would be responding to a typical domestic dispute. But he didn't know that the perp was St. Louis's most notorious mobster - or that the victim was his college sweetheart, Lisa Tobin. Now, as Rafe is drawn into a web of crime and danger, he discovers that his feelings for Lisa are stronger than ever. And her three-year-old daughter, Chloe, is melting his heart in ways he'd never imagined possible. But Lisa's ex is a powerful sociopath who will stop at nothing to get her back - or destroy her.

    PLOT: Lisa must deal with her Psycho ex husband.

    Officer Franco answers a call and finds the victim is his former lover Lisa. Lisa's ex husband Sloan breaks into her home and threatens her. Corrupt and Wealthy Sloan buys his happiness and freedom using any means both legal and illegal to get his "own way" in just about everything including his ex wife's life. When Officer Franco 'crosses' Sloan an he finds he is soon implicated in a murder and internal affairs is taking him to trial on a murder he did not commit. This is a very good story it holds the interest. I liked the heroine Lisa who is not a victim but a survivor. the real interesting character in this book is the Psycho Sloan who shows how a nut with money is still a nut. The reader is excellent and I really enjoyed the book due to her. I would give this book 5 stars all the way including the reader.

To protect his ex-fiancee, and the baby girl he never knew they'd created, from a malevolent masked man. Who is behind the attack-and what could they possibly want with Peggy Jane "PJ" Franks? While the answer remains unclear, one thing is certain: Chuck never stopped loving PJ after she left him.

    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen was first published in 1813. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, moral rightness, education and marriage in her aristocratic society of early 19th century England. Elizabeth is the second eldest of five daughters of a country gentleman living in the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, not far from London.

    This is a very good edition of this book. I listed to about 10 or more samples of books before I purchased this one. Her accent is good and she talks smoothly. It is not the typical ...you have to pay attention to catch every work edition. It does not drag and Margarite Gavin is one of the better readers. I liked it...I will buy more from this reader.

    Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov were the most electrifying pairs skaters of all time, winning Olympic gold medals and countless major championships. Partners on and off the ice, they were inseparable until Sergei's sudden, tragic death at the age of 28. In the inspiring, heartbreaking My Sergei, Katia tells the remarkable story of their storybook romance and extraordinary career, paying loving tribute to her exceptional husband. She also speaks eloquently of her battle to overcome grief after Sergei's death, her struggle to raise their daughter Daria, and her dramatic decision to skate again...alone.

    Story

    PLOT: fast and short story about the life of Russian Pair Skaters.

    This book is not very long. it is told through the eyes of Ekatrina Gordiava from the early training and when she meets and skates with Sergei. The background of the old Russian System and the changes to the new. Eventually they marry and have a child. Win 2 gold medals at the Olympics. This is a good story for those who love skating and this sweet couple. I give this 3 STARS. the audio sounds like it was recorded in someone's garage and on a home recorder....and a Russian woman narrates. This is good but you have to pay attention because she drops words out of sentences. The Story is 4 stars but the rather poor audio quality and the distracting Russian narrator is less enjoyable than it could have been.
