    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions.

    Would you try another book from Chris Kyle and Scott McEwan and/or John Pruden?

    Probably not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Chris Kyle and Scott McEwan again?

    Maybe.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Just because the protagonist is a good ol' boy from Texas, this doesn't mean that he is a rube! And, be assured, that's how the narrator plays the character. Distracting.


    Did American Sniper inspire you to do anything?

    Finish the story as quickly as possible to limit the pain.


    Any additional comments?

    Not exactly 93 Kills nor Master Sniper.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Would you listen to The Company again? Why?

    Well written, complete (long), entertaining and well read ! Can I say more ?


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

    It has already been done, well, and in a very truncated form.
