    Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, award-winning authors of such best sellers as Footfall and The Legacy of Heorot, return us to the Mote, and to the universe of Kevin Renner and Horace Bury, of Rod Blaine and Sally Fowler. There, 25 years have passed since humanity quarantined the mysterious aliens known as Moties within the confines of their own solar system. They have spent a quarter century analyzing and agonizing over the deadly threat posed by the only aliens mankind has ever encountered - a race divided into distinct biological forms, each serving a different function: Master, Mediator, Engineer, Warrior.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Gripping Hand in three words, what would they be?

    While listening I found it difficult at times to follow who was involved in the plot at what race (human or Motie) that person was. It didn't see like there was much distinction in the narrator's voice when it came to the different characters; It's the same narrator but I liked the narration he did for "The Mote in God's Eye" much better. I'd have to listen to both again to make a good distinction.


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

    Not necessarily.

    When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six—a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes listeners deep inside the world of Navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL - the toughest and longest military training in the world.

    Allan says: "unique among these books"

    Story

    I started listening to this book yesterday morning and barely turned it off before completing the first six hours. The story of the making of an elite Navy Seal was gripping. The reader was pleasant to listen to and even did accents for some of the the different non-American players in the story.
    From five years old to "retirement" from the Seals, the author tells a gripping tale of the high-stakes world of the elite Navy Seals.
