    As the lead singer of the Doors, Jim Morrison's searing poetic vision and voracious appetite for sexual, spiritual, and psychedelic experience inflamed the spirit and psyche of a generation. Since his mysterious death in 1971, millions more fans from a new generation have embraced his legacy, as layers of myth have gathered to enshroud the life, career, and true character of the man who was James Douglas Morrison.

    Story

    This book is very extensive and believable. Having lived through this period it brings back many memories. It was good to hear some of the behind the scenes information that I was not privy to in my youth.

    What made the experience of listening to Ticket to Ride the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it was read by the author.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Because the author was a reporter, it is very believable. So many books are second and third account references and you are unsure of the authenticity.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole book was memorable, beginning to end.


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

    I was there, really!

    Robert Morgan's Gap Creek was an Oprah's Book Club selection and a phenomenal New York Times best-seller. Here he turns his talent to chronicling the life of American frontier legend Daniel Boone.

    Would you listen to Boone again? Why?

    Yes, because I am a history buff and this book was long and detailed.


    What does James Jenner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Convenience. This book was long and I would not have spent the time to read it.


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

    No.

  • George Harrison: A Tribute

    The silence is deafening with the loss of George Harrison, the "Quiet Beatle," who lost his long bout with cancer last week at the age of 58. George Harrison: A Tribute celebrates the journey of the musician and the man - a journey which, like the traveler himself, is an extraordinary mix of the spiritual and the down-to-earth. It is a gripping, inspiring, and at times amusing portrait of one of popular music's highest-soaring talents - who will be sorely missed.

    Richard says: "Sloppy and lazy research"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book skimmed through the life of George with a few interviews by and about the Beatles.


    Has George Harrison turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but this author had some incorrect information and vague conclusions and opinions.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Geoffrey Giuliano?

    No


    Was George Harrison worth the listening time?

    Not really
