    Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

    Theodore says: "Shakes you to your very core."

    I really loved this book, Scott Brick is the best Narrator, he can bring a story to life however no matter how gifted he is in his narration he cannot make a bad story good, in this case he didn't have to attempt it, excellent story, excellent narrator, perfect marraige of both! Worth a credit and then some!

    The story begins on opening day of the NFL season, when bullets begin to rain down upon the upper deck of a packed football stadium. A panic stampede ensues, leading to mass casualties. The alleged sniper is found holding a smoking assault rifle, and is killed by a police marksman. One week later, Congress bans the private possession of all semi-automatic assault rifles. Gun owners are given one week to turn in their semi-automatic rifles, or face a five year mandatory sentence.

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

    If the author would insist on having these books narrated by someone who doesn't sound like someone learning to read aloud these could be very good, the narrator unfortunately ruins it, I couldn't even make it through the first book, a shame! Get Scott Brick or Ray Porter to narrate this series....please!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    narrator ruined it


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    horrible narration, no affect at all, droning on and on and on....ruined it all!


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

    would have if not for the narrator


    Any additional comments?

    horrible (I can't express how horrible) the narrator is!!!

    An anonymous young woman murdered in a run-down hotel, all identifying characteristics dissolved by acid. A father publicly beheaded in the blistering heat of a Saudi Arabian public square. A notorious Syrian biotech expert found eyeless in a Damascus junkyard. Smoldering human remains on a remote mountainside in Afghanistan. A flawless plot to commit an appalling crime against humanity.

    At 24 years of age, U.S. Army Ranger Sean Parnell was named commander of a forty-man elite infantry platoon - a unit that came to be known as the Outlaws - and was tasked with rooting out Pakistan-based insurgents from a mountain valley along Afghanistan's eastern frontier. Parnell and his men assumed they would be facing a ragtag bunch of civilians, but in May 2006 what started out as a routine patrol through the lower mountains of the Hindu Kush became a brutal ambush.

    Where does Outlaw Platoon rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I'm not a big fan of war stories however this book was gripping and was so well written, Ray Porter really brought the book to life with his narration & portrayal of each character in the book, Ray Porter is an excellent narrator separating each character without being overly dramatic, he did a perfect job! Listening to audio books (which I do almost continuously) if you have a great book with a bad narrator it ruins the whole thing, I've left many untouched because the narration was so terrible, it's also the same with a great narrator and terrible writing, but these came together perfectly, I'd highly recommend this book and Ray Porter to anyone!

    What did you like best about Private Sector? What did you like least?

    If Scott Brick had narrated this book as he has some of your others this may have gotten much better reviews, but these narrators where just plain boring!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Boring!

    At the end of her best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government....

    Nancy says: "Perfect timing"

    In my opinion it didn't live up to expectations based on the first book "Eat, Pray, Love".

    I was not disappointed, LOVED this book and Scott Brick brings it to life! A great sequel to The Lions Game! It also reminds you that we can never feel as safe & as separate from the rest of the world as we did pre 9/11.
