    First came the man: a young wanderer in a fatigue coat and long hair. Then came the legend as the character, John Rambo, took his place in the American imagination. This remarkable and critically acclaimed novel pits a young Vietnam veteran against a small-town cop who doesn't know what he will unleash after their first ill-fated encounter - a life-and-death struggle through the woods, hills, and caves of rural Kentucky.

    Michael Rogers says: "Not everything I expected, but exciting"

    Where does First Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think I would have to say in my top 25.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wouldn't go so far as to say the edge of my seat good, but it was enjoyable. This Rambo was one bad mother (shut your mouth) type of guy that was just pushed too far. And he showed the sheriff that he was the wrong drifter to go and mess with.


    What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Like what i say every time, that when you have a good narrator it brings the characters to life and Mr. Dove did a good job on his part.


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

    The movie tag line that was used in 1982 works just fine in my opinion "This time he's fighting for his life."


    Any additional comments?

    It's pretty much the same as the movie, except that he kills a butt load of guys in this book than what he did in the first Rambo movie. I still enjoyed listening to the book and I'm a fan of the movie too.

    For years the Department of Military Sciences has fought to stop terrorists from using radical bioweapons - designer plagues, weaponized pathogens, genetically modified viruses, and even the zombie plague that first brought Ledger into the DMS. These terrible weapons have been locked away in the world’s most secure facility. Until now. Joe Ledger and Echo Team are scrambled when a highly elite team of killers breaks the unbreakable security and steals the world’s most dangerous weapons.

    To me this book tied in all the other books in very nicely. When I heard about this book I was all in. Lots of action and suspense, to me Jonathan Mayberry hasn't lost a step. I wanna tell you more about the code zero but in fear of spoiling it I won't. This book is worth the credit or money so read or listen to it, but you have to listen or read the other books first. Enjoy...

    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    This book is great!! It tells us more of Earl's past and how sometimes things from your past can sometimes come back to haunt you. Loads of action and tons of fun, this book is very entertaining and I recommend this book to anyone who loves action and werewolves.

    Timothy was not a good man in life and being undead did little to improve his disposition. What will a man trapped in his own mind do to survive when he wakes up to find himself a zombie controlled by a self-aware virus?

    What do you do after you’ve escaped Hell, gone back, uncovered the true nature of God, and then managed to become the new Lucifer? Well, if you’re James Stark, you have to figure out how to run Hell while also trying to get back out of it... again. Plus there’s the small matter of surviving. Because everyone in Heaven, Hell, and in between wants to be the fastest gun in the universe, and the best way to do so is to take down Lucifer, a.k.a. James Stark.

    To me this wasn't the best Sandman Slim book, the beginning was a bit slow. It was a lot of Stark complaining about being the new Satan and him having to watch his back. It wasn't until he got top side when it got to be interesting, a lot of old characters and some good old Sandman Slim fun.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    What made the experience of listening to Patient Zero the most enjoyable?

    The action and intensity of Mr. Joe Ledger, the way this man can kick butt and take names is so cool.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Patient Zero?

    There are a couple of memorable moments, one would be how they figured out who would be team leader, two would be that attack on the crab factory and three the last fight was really cool...


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    I think I like Mr. Porter's performance of Rudy was my favorite, In a way he does sound a little like Raul Julia.


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

    Well no i didn't cry, but i did laugh a couple of times and i was rooting for echo team loudly in my work van.


    Any additional comments?

    To me this was a great book and I recommend this book and even the series to anyone who likes action books. Shoot i listen to this book 3 times.

    Indian Hill is about an ordinary boy who grows up in relatively normal times but who finds himself thrust into an extraordinary position. Growing up in suburban Boston, Michael enjoys the trials and tribulations that all adolescents go through, from the seemingly tyrannical mother, to girl problems, to run-ins with the law. From there he escapes to college out in Colorado with his best friend, Paul, where they begin to forge new relationships with those around them. It is one girl in particular that has caught Michael's eye, and he alternately pines for her and laments ever meeting her.

    Would you listen to Indian Hill Series #1: Indian Hill again? Why?

    I'm pretty sure I will listen to this book again. Well I loved the Zombie Fallout series and and I think Michael Talbot is a likeable guy, plus when you listen to a book a second time you get more out of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It wasn't anything I was expecting, but what I liked about this story is how Mike turned form a care free college guy to somewhat of a hardcore gladiator.


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

    Sean brings dept and life to the characters, each person has their own voice and personality (but that's what Mr. Tufo was going for giving his characters their own personality). And if I read the book myself each person would sound like me and I that would be a little confusing.


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

    I pretty much did, I listen to Audible while I work and sometimes I work a long day.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd say give this book a try if you like aliens, gladiators and just some good old fashion action.

    "My name is Mike Ross and I'm a Ferryman - like in the Greek myth. I didn't ask for, or really want, the job, but I'm trying to make the best of it. Most ghosts are okay and just need a little help to get where they need to go. Unfortunately, there are lots of exceptions, like power-mad psychopaths, spirits still trying to fight battles long since lost, and the worst of the lot - the Skinwalkers. They live vicariously by possessing people and controlling them like puppet masters. Then they toss them aside when they've outlived their usefulness."

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

    Yeah I would, if you liked the first book you'll like the second book too...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye: The Skinwalker Conspiracies?

    When mike's spirit was put in a dogs body, it was kinda interesting that he still alive and that he can leave his own physical body and spirit jump.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he met and fought Lee Harvey Oswald.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to people who are into supernatural books and i just wanna know when are we getting book three so we know what's gonna happen to Mike Ross and his group of spirits.

    John works in his family's mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He wants to be a good person but fears he is a sociopath, and for years he has suppressed his dark side through a strict system of rules designed to mimic "normal" behavior. Then a demon begins stalking his small town and killing people one by one, and John is forced to give in to his darker nature in order to save them.

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

    I would, but in print version. Well look above...


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It tied everything together somewhat nicely at the end but i wasn't really impressed.


    What didn’t you like about John Allen Nelson’s performance?

    Where should i start, with the no emotion this book draaaaaaaged. The nasal sounding voice was like come on guy I understand the kid is going through puberty, but does everyone need to sound almost the same...


    Do you think I Am Not a Serial Killer needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It does need a follow-up book, but get rid of John Allen (sorry John)... We need another book because we need to know if this kid is gonna be a serial killer.

    "My name is Mike Ross. I'm a Ferryman. I help people with ghost problems, or ghosts with people problems. Funny thing, no one ever helps me with my problems. Civil War ghosts bent on killing me, Skinwalkers who just want my body, and a vindictive spirit linked both to my bloodline and my destiny... It turns out the dead still hold a good deal of influence over the world, and they don't want to give it up. I'm in way over my head. Fortunately, I'm too stubborn to quit."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman to be better than the print version?

    To me audio version is better than print because I get more of the feel of the book, but not all people are the same as me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman?

    When he spoke to the first dead person which was he's grandfather, to me that would have been a great moment to have spoken to a loved one that had passed on.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    I would have to say Mike Ross, because one he's the main character and he's just a likeable person in one way or another.


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

    He see's and fight dead people.


    Any additional comments?

    To me this book reminds me of the movie "the eye", but sooooo much better. It's got action, suspense, some comedy and a blind priest that sees dead people too. What more can you ask for?
