    Story
    (8018)

    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!"
    "A GREAT AMERICAN HERO STORY OF SURVIVAL."
    Overall

    What a an inspirational story. How these men stood all the torture and still survived Is amazing. It makes you proud of our military men and women.

    Story

    From Mark Bowden, internationally best-selling and acclaimed author of Black Hawk Down and the preeminent chronicler of the actions of our military and special forces writing today, comes an intensely gripping account of the hunt for and elimination of Osama bin Laden. With unprecedented access to key sources and his great gift for storytelling, Bowden takes us inside the rooms where decisions were made and on the ground where the action unfolded.

    W. Goodman says: "Bowden is great as usual, but the narrator sucks"
    "Far to much information about President Obama."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More information about the warriors who planned and executed the attack and less time spent pumping up President Obama.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Another verson of killing Bin Ladin.


    What aspect of James Lurie’s performance would you have changed?

    No comment.


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

    Happy Bin Ladin was killed but disapointed about this verson of the events.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not reccomend this verson of the the story.
