    Mike Piazza was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 62nd round of the 1988 baseball draft as a "courtesy pick". The Dodgers never expected him to play for them - or anyone else. Mike had other ideas. Overcoming his detractors, he became the National League Rookie of the Year in 1993, broke the record for season batting average by a catcher, holds the record for career home runs at his position, and was selected as an All Star 12 times. Mike was groomed for baseball success by his ambitious, self-made father in Pennsylvania, a classic father-son American-dream story.

    Where does Long Shot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Long Shot?

    I watched Piazza through his career and enjoy knowing the inside stuff. Listening to this book brought back a lot of memories. Wasn't just any one thing, but the tales of his interactions with Eric Karros gave a chuckle. I laughed out loud at many of them.


    Which character – as performed by Holter Graham and Mike Piazza – was your favorite?

    MP for sure


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

    Yes

    Holter Graham was the perfect choice for narrator.

    As an Alterant who fights everything from trolls to demons, Evalle has lived as an outcast among the Beladors, but can now change all that... and find answers to her origins as well. Those answers and a traitor hide within the Medb coven, an enemy poised to destroy the mortal world and all that Evalle holds dear. While her best friends Tzader and Quinn want to help, they have their own conflicts and face unthinkable choices as relationships with the women they love twist in unexpected directions.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes...Excellent story with plenty of action.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rise of the Gryphon?

    The end! I won't spoil it for anyone.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Stephen R. Thorne?

    Probably not unless it was an instruction manual. He has a clear voice and reads well, but there is no definition of character; almost monotone. Listen to the first 3 books, then this one and you'll understand. I would LOVE to hear Fred Berman or Dick Hill narrate this book.
