    With a postscript describing SEAL efforts in Afghanistan, The Warrior Elite takes you into the toughest, longest, and most relentless military training in the world. What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? What makes talented, intelligent young men volunteer for physical punishment, cold water, and days without sleep?

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    This book should have been narrated by someone with military experience; someone that understands how certain things are pronounced and emphasized in the military.


    Any additional comments?

    In spite of the narrator's shortcomings, it was still an interesting listen.

    Jon Hudson, lead investigator for the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center-P, thinks his job is a joke. While other Fusion Centers focus on thwarting terrorist activity, Hudson's division is tasked with handling paranormal threats to national security, of which there have been zero during his years at the DHS. When yet another Sasquatch sighting leads to a research facility in the backwoods of Maine, disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site, Hudson's job becomes deadly serious.

    I struggled to finish this book. I don't like writing negative reviews, but this book inspired me to write this review so that others in search of genuinely good fiction might instead avoid an agonizing listen and buyers remorse. This isn't the worst science fiction I've ever read/listened to, but it was far from the best.

    This kaiju thriller lacked imagination. It had relatively little to say about kaiju, and wasn't the least bit thrilling. None of the characters were believable. They lacked depth. They were as predictable and juvenile as the plot. The author obviously knows very little about science, aircraft, or firearms, and even less about women. He should probably stick to subject matter of which he is knowledgeable.

    I found the narrator's voice nasal, grating, and annoying, like nails on a chalkboard. It may just be a matter of personal preference, but I won't be listening to anymore of his works. Sorry.

    I think it would be better suited to young teens and other readers/listeners who are not so well read and have little-to-no basis for comparison. On the other hand, if you've been exposed to truly good literature, then save yourself the agony...find another book.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    What did you love best about Hard Magic?

    I really enjoyed the little differences and explanations concerning various historical events and quotes in this alternate reality.


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    Bronson Pinchot's performance was excellent! His portrayal of each character was distinctive. I couldn't possibly choose just one favorite!


    Any additional comments?

    This book needs to be on film! It's destined to become a big budget blockbuster!

    In August 2006, the International Astronomical Union voted Pluto out of planethood. Far from the sun, tiny, and eccentric in orbit, it's a wonder Pluto has any fans. Yet during the mounting debate over Pluto's status, Americans rallied behind the extraterrestrial underdog.

    This guy sounds so much like Neil deGrasse Tyson, I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn't narrated by the author!

    Mixing a bit of seventeenth-century French history with a great deal of invention, Alexandre Dumas tells the tale of young D'Artagnan and his musketeer comrades, Porthos, Athos, and Aramis. Together they fight to foil the schemes of the brilliant, dangerous Cardinal Richelieu, who pretends to support the king while plotting to advance his own power. Bursting with swirling swordplay, swooning romance, and unforgettable figures.

    A. A. Green says: "What Fun!"

    Would you listen to The Three Musketeers again? Why?

    I enjoyed this book so much, I'll probably listen to it at least once a year.


    Any additional comments?

    There hasn't been a film yet that honestly follows the book. This story is far better than any of them!
