    This powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of four cadets who have become bloodbrothers. Together they will encounter the hell of hazing and the rabid, raunchy and dangerously secretive atmosphere of an arrogant and proud military institute. They will experience the violence. The passion. The rage. The friendship. The loyalty. The betrayal. Together, they will brace themselves for the brutal transition to manhood... and one will not survive.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dan John Miller?

    I thought he was a pretty good reader, but his mispronunciations were distracting. Fete, effete, papist, archtype are a few.

  • John Lennon: The Life

    Story

    Philip Norman turns his formidable talent to the Beatle for whom belonging to the world's most beloved pop group was never enough. Drawing on previously untapped sources, and with unprecedented access to all the major characters, here is the definitive portrait of John Lennon. This biography takes a fresh and penetrating look at Lennon's much-chronicled life, including the songs that have turned him, posthumously, into almost a secular saint.

    Let's Be Reasonable says: "Really Bad Abridgement Job (slash job)"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Philip Norman and/or Graeme Malcolm?

    Sure. I think the entire book would have been great, or even a well-edited one. But this one makes you think you've zoned out and missed a big chunk or else had a technical malfunction. Graeme Malcolm is a good reader. Money: A Suicide Note was really great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Guess.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from John Lennon?

    Oh, God, please don't cut more.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to hear this unabridged, but now I'm just cranky that I blew a credit on this book.

    Jonathan has gone to England for a vacation, but it is interrupted when British Intelligence needs him for his highly skilled services. Jonathan must take over the mission of an agent whose murder was so bizarre and terrifying that no other agent was willing to replace him. His task is to locate a set of secretly made films that incriminate a number of high-ranking British officials. His target is a top underworld figure who delights in debauchery and torture.

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

    Joe Barrett is a great reader, and this is a fun, slightly racy spy thriller. The violence is pretty brutal.


    What other book might you compare The Loo Sanction to and why?

    The Eiger Sanction, also good.


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

    Yes, but it would be a spoiler to say what.

  • Ready Player One

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Ernest Cline

    Story
    (10242)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    People seem to love this book, and the story is ok, but it's not particularly well-written. I found that distracting.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story is good.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Wil Wheaton’s performances?

    Nope. Too many mispronunciations.


    Do you think Ready Player One needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No opinion.
