    On a busy Washington morning, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a deadly terrorist attack on the executive mansion. The president is evacuated to an underground bunker, but not before nearly one hundred hostages are taken. Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

    Michael says: "Great Story-Bad Narration"

    If you could sum up Transfer of Power in three words, what would they be?

    Can't stop listening


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Transfer of Power?

    Hooked on Mich Rapp


    What three words best describe Nick Sullivan’s voice?

    Nothing to wirte home about


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

    Shouldn't attempt femaie voices which is a problem with most male voice actors. Also word pronouncation needs improvement, again a problem with most readers attempting to be actors who don't research their subject matter thereby screwing pronouncing words that aren't necessarily in common usage.


    Any additional comments?

    In spite of the above criticism can't beat Mich Rapp for excitment. Vince Flynn does his research.

    After the presidents' helicopter, Marine One, goes down in a brutal thunderstorm, the government blames the European manufacturer of the helicopter, accusing them of killing the president. Senate investigations and Justice Department accusations multiply as Mike Nolan, a Marine Corps reserve helicopter pilot and trial attorney in civilian life, is hired to defend the company from the criminal investigations and a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the most notorious lawyer in America.

    Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight - and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines. But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a greater threat lurks....

    Where does Executive Power rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 5


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Best narrator for Mitch Rapp and Flynn's character I've heard. Perfect voice to match a macho protaginest.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made my laugh at some of the sorry situations between the hero and politicians.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes but they be politically incorrect like Rapp

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here in War and Remembrance, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Time well spent because it sets forth the true record of WWII


    What other book might you compare War and Remembrance to and why?

    Incomparible.


    What didn???t you like about Kevin Pariseau???s performance?

    His lame attempts at voice the characters and madding mispronounciation of words.


    Did War and Remembrance inspire you to do anything?

    To read the Winds of War only after I give my ears a rest from Pariseau's over acting.


    Any additional comments?

    Needs better direction and forget the attempts at singing refrains from the past, that doesn't lend anything to the book, but is a distraction. Something to fast forward through.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    What did you like best about Miracle Cure? What did you like least?

    The gratuitous violence thought necessary to make the point


    What other book might you compare Miracle Cure to and why?

    Like most other thrillers with HIVas the main story line


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Scott Brick has a good voice albeit he is excessively melodramatic and after awhile all his characters sound the same. Just read the story without all of the excessive conspiratorialy voicing.


    Did Miracle Cure inspire you to do anything?

    No, unless avoiding other Harlan Coben's stories if they exhibit the same level of unecessary discriptions of violence.

    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    D says: "Spiritually Uplifting -- and entertaining!"
    "Life Changing"

    If you only listen(read) one book in your life time it should be this book.

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"
    "Unusual"
    Overall

    Very sci-fi and not what I expected, although it was just compelling enough that I had to see the outcome. Probably won't read this author again, not my style. Found it difficult to stay with at times.

    Here is the astonishing, never-before-told story of the greatest rescue mission of World War II: when the OSS set out to recover more than 500 airmen trapped behind enemy lines. During a bombing campaign, hundreds of American airmen were shot down in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. Local Serbian villagers risked their own lives to give refuge to the soldiers, and for months the airmen lived in hiding, waiting for rescue.

    Ron says: "an amazing tale"
    "The Forgotten 500 (Unabridged"
    Overall

    Very interesting providing a very important historical perspective and understanding on the Balkans from WWII to current and how the U.S. and Britan sold out the freedom loving people of that area.

    Didn't care much for the reader - his voice always sounded strained and screechy.
