    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Where does American Sniper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably one of my favorite audio books


    What other book might you compare American Sniper to and why?

    Non-fiction of something compared to Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Author was so casual about the events at points. Author was always concerned about our soldiers.


    Any additional comments?

    Informative with a good story

    In this mystery classic, Perry Mason takes on the case of a young woman whom the authorities accuse of exploiting her wealthy uncle. The Case of the Beautiful Beggar is part of Erle Stanley Gardner's massively popular, always compelling Perry Mason series. Everyone's favorite crusading attorney must use all his investigative and interrogatory skills to crack the case and win the trial.

    Would you try another book from Erle Stanley Gardner and/or Perry King?

    Don't bother with this book, half way through the ending is read.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be pulled until it is corrected. I would like a refund.

    Michael Lewis’ Flash Boys revealed how high-frequency trading has created a ruthless breed of traders capable of winning whichever way the market turns. In Rogue Code, Mark Russinovich takes it one step further to show how their grip on high finance makes the stock market vulnerable to hackers who could bring about worldwide financial collapse.

    What did you like best about this story?

    A lot of technical details you just don't get in many fiction (Is it really fiction???). Amazing what is going on that impacts so many and controlled by so few.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator just doesn't have it for voice change. It made it hard to follow when multiple characters were involved.

    On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality: thirty Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East - the Fatah Revolutionary Council. But surviving agent and ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath doesn't believe the Fatah Revolutionary Council is responsible for the attack.

    Delta Force—the US Army’s most elite top-secret strike force. They dominate the modern battlefield, but you won’t hear about their heroics on CNN. No headlines can reveal their top-secret missions, and no book has ever taken readers inside—until now. Here, a founding member of Delta Force takes us behind the veil of secrecy and into the action to reveal the never-before-told story of First Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force).

    What made the experience of listening to Inside Delta Force the most enjoyable?

    I hate to write anything bad about someone who has devoted his life to his country, but then I think the author would be insulted if I was honest with him. First half of the book covered training but it had to many details about it. Maybe the author made him I don't know but I thought that it could have been reduced.

    Second half of the book was what I had expected, great read!

    For decades, December 21, 2012, has been a touchstone for doomsayers worldwide. It is the date, they claim, when the ancient Maya calendar predicts the world will end. In Los Angeles, two weeks before, all is calm. Dr. Gabriel Stanton takes his usual morning bike ride, drops off the dog with his ex-wife, and heads to the lab where he studies incurable prion diseases for the CDC. His first phone call is from a hospital resident who has an urgent case she thinks he needs to see.

    Would you try another book from Dustin Thomason and/or the narrators?

    I am a big Vince Flynn fan and he recommended this book. It just did a bad job of building out the story and until it got 3/4 quarters of the way in before it started to get interesting and then the book premise was solved in about 2 minutes at the end. I wouldn't recommend this book at all.

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    Would you listen to Separation of Power again? Why?

    I don't like to be critical, but I almost put this down do to the narration. I have one book to go in the series and fortunately it is done by George Guidal again.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Kilban’s performances?

    No

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    It was real difficult to get into this story. I struggled to listen to the end.
