wherever James Lee Burke takes you, there you are. this book is a trip to the Alamo. The book is too short but every single minute of it is worth the read. The narration is fantastic. I think I have read almost all of Burke's stories and this one is a good yarn. His descriptions of the old west make you smell it and feel the grit in your teeth.
I really enjoyed the story. I recently read the stand by Stephen King. This is a similar end of the world tail except that the world is blown up instead of killed by a man made virus. the tales of survival are similar. Swan song is scarier. I couldn't stop listening to it practically finished all 34 hours without a break. The narration of this book is absolutely superb. if you're driving across country take this book with you and you'll be sure not to do any sightseeing or get out of the car.
Enjoyed the story. Andrew Peterson is a good writer. There are three books in this series. I liked the first two the best. The third book is a builder for future stories.
Fast paced, I listened to all three in one gulp. Fun.
Read this book years ago but the revised edition is better. I loved the book. Stephen King has the ability to bring you into a story like few others. Very thought provoking.
The narrator, Grover Garder, is fantastic. I think he one of the best in the business.
I really liked this book. I agree with his very excellent and well presented research on the problems wheat is causing in our diet.
After the second chapter I stopped all wheat consumption. That was five weeks ago, and I have lost three pounds. I am not fat, but was getting a wheat belly. It has gone down two belt notches and I feel much less bloated.
Mainly, I feel much better, I don't have the wild cravings for crackers and cookies I was living on.
I now understand the cycle of glucose intake and how it effects my body, and why.
If you struggle with weight, rashes, mood swings, low energy, READ THIS BOOK.
The narration is excellent but it does have medical and scientific terms so have a dictionary
handy. He mostly explains all the terms but it will be daunting for some and stop others.
I recommend he write a consumer edition and scale back on the scientific nomenclature.
This is a VERY important book, it needs to be read and understood by the masses.
Sad to say many of the masses can't read well enough to get through this book.
Loved the book. I like action stories where the bad guys get wasted and this book does not disappoint. The hero is pretty much a super hero in many ways but it is a story, who wants normal?
The narration is very good as well.
This is a great Clancy book. I have loved his stories for many years and this is one of the best.
He presents excellently researched computer hacking data that is impacting our world today.
The whole Chinese connection is also very accurate. So much of what Clancy reveals in the story are things that are actually happening in that country. I really wish this was all just fantasy, but I fear it is not.
Mark Greaney is another one of my favorite authors and is influence is appreciated. Pick up one of his books and you will not be disappointed.
I basically listened with all my available time, excluding my family, and getting those all too common comments like " What are you listening too that is so important you don't have time to talk..." Oh well, I must need counseling. I love a book that puts me in this zone, and this one did.
Thanks Tom and Mark.
This is a must read book for all people interested in wanting to understand how the raid on Bin Laden went down. Well written and narrated. It makes me very mad that our pathetic VP and others leaked the identity of the team that carried out this mission. One of the that team was killed a month later and I hope Biden thinks about that when he goes to bed at night.
I love John Sandford books. This is another Virgil Flowers story, I have enjoyed them all. Plenty of unnecessary violence and crimes to be solved. What else can you ask for.
Not exactly what I expected but the writing was excellent and the characters fun to get to know. The premis is fiction and twisted but keep me listening. I have spent much time in the exact area of Los Angeles where the story takes place and that made it all a bit more real. Most of LA is like fiction anyway so this book just added another layer.
