    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    A story of sadness in a prison camp in Japan, it not a story I would have endured I am sure.

    Comfortable in his new life in Deer Run, young Ruben Beeler is called away by Marshal Marion Daniels to help in an investigation of murder and mutilation north of St. Joe. That begins a search for killers and leads the men northward into unfamiliar territory, pitting them against a family of outlaws who have ruled Nodaway County since before the Civil War.

    Story

    I have listened to all of the Trail series twice. While the stories a very good, it's the reading done by the author that makes the listen great. I have laughed out loud at many of the different slang terms the charters use through out the book. Hope Mr Lewis has more of these stories coming.
    I guess that I am a fan.

    Janeway has agreed to help Laura Marshall, a friend of his bookstore partner, who's accused of murdering her husband. While Janeway tries to gather the facts, he pulls long shifts standing watch over the Marshall home, filled with books signed by their celebrity authors. When a shifty pair of alleged book dealers turns up, and Janeway begins to suspect that Laura's son is hiding critical information, the case becomes a maze of clues and increasing danger.

    "You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely," notes Jack Reacher - and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott - an American marksman gone bad - is one of them...

    I have been listening to Reacher books in the past. Unfortunatly; in this book it seem that any idea or thought required listing the several possible alternatives, over and over this happened and I really had a hard time completing the book. This problem really messed up a good story.

    As the great migration of men and cattle headed west to new untamed lands in the 1880s, one man stood tall. Jimmy Highsaw was honest as the day is long - cross him and hell was at hand. Leaving his job as trail scout for John Chisum, Jim rode to Durango to visit his sister, and fell headlong into a plot to bring a herd of the new breed of Hereford cattle from Kansas City to Durango Colorado. A long dusty trail filled with romance, gun smoke, hardship, and death.

    This story kept me laughing and hoping it would not end. I listen to books a lot and It has been a long time since I enjoyed one as much as this one. A good story, easy writing, believable, just a wonderful listen. I will look for more books by David R. Lewis, but he will have a hard time topping this one

    I enjoyed the story, but seemed to drag with not much happening at times. Really unhappy about how the book ends, but suppose left that way to form an opening for the next book.
    Anything read by George Guidall is made better by his reading!!!

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Was a great history lesson, but the history was so boring I never got to the story (if there was one). I have listened to other Griffin books, but this one just kept on and on, so if there was any story in there I never got to it. I should return the book, but t t t t.

    Not since the publication of his own beloved classic Lonesome Dove has there been a novel like this one, another big, brilliant, unputdownable saga of the West from Larry McMurtry. Telegraph Days is at once a major work of literature and a completely absorbing read, not just great fiction, but fiction on a great scale.

    Gor this book thinking it was a Western and really it was, but not your normal shootem up roundem up. I really don't like to listen to female narrators but after llistening a while she kinda grew on me. It's a story about girl/woman getting by in the west. Turned out I couldn't stop listening and stayed on to the end and am really glad I did. This story is one that grabs you and you don't want to lay it down (so to speak). Anyway give it a try!!!
