    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?

    This is without a doubt the best book I've got off of audible. I am so proud that men like Sean and his brothers in arms protect this country and fight for us. INTENSE!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    How Sean let you know how he felt but could never let the men know what was really in his head


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't but I believe I will be soon.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Outlaw Platoon,

  • Not Taco Bell Material

    • ABRIDGED (7 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Adam Carolla

    Story
    (920)

    Funnyman Adam Carolla is known for two things: hilarious rants about things that drive him crazy and personal stories about everything from his hardscrabble childhood to his slacker friends to the hypocrisy of Hollywood. He tackled rants in his first book, and now he tells his best stories and debuts some never-before-heard tales as well. Adam Carolla started broke and blue collar and has now been on the Hollywood scene for over 15 years. Yet he never lost his underdog demeanor.

    Brett says: "Not bad but uneven and not revealing."
    "Carolla talks EVERYTHING and makes it funny"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Not Taco Bell Material to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version but since the audio book and the print versions are very different these might not be the best question to ask.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Not Taco Bell Material?

    When Adam tells the story of his buddy Ray trying to spray water out of his butt onto the dude in the drive thru window at the Jack in the Box! the best books have a water pooping story in them.


    What about Adam Carolla’s performance did you like?

    When Ray came in to help tell a Ray Story. When Dr Drew came in to tell road trip stories and when Adam farted live to make a point!


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

    Adams passion for how working hard to get out of the welfare . When he realizes how to do it.


    Any additional comments?

    this should be a movie.
