    Quenton Cassidy thought he had left his athletic career far behind as he built a successful professional career in south Florida. But as several personal tragedies and the wear and tear of life began to weigh upon him, he wonders if perhaps he hasn't given up a special part of his life too soon. His return to the world of competitive running is dramatic and revelatory to both the protagonist and the listener, as is his desperate, all-out attempt to make on last Olympic team.

    Where does Again to Carthage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the best. This is better than Parker's once a runner


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Again to Carthage?

    Trip to the Bahamas. Love the way it is arranged into stories about life


    What about Patrick Lawlor’s performance did you like?

    He did a good job narrating but I had a hard time realizing who was speaking in the story. His voice does not sound different when characters are speaking


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

    Live your life like a clock


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best books of all time. An athletic mark twain and a 21st century Hemingway. The vocabulary is mental gymnastics.

    At the request (well, it wasn't really a request) of his employers, Augusten lands in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey Jr. are immediately dashed by grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. When Augusten is forced to examine himself, he finds himself in the worst trouble of all. Because when his thirty days are up, he has to return to his same drunken Manhattan life - and live it sober. Dry is the story of love, loss, and Starbucks as a Higher Power

    Heidi says: "Sobriety with a sense of style...."
    "Be careful this is more about gay than kicking the"

    What would have made Dry better?

    I couldn't relate

    He is a great narrator and very funny


    Any additional comments?

    I learned that I'm not an alcoholic and defiantly not gay. If your metro this is a great book.

    Story

    An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

    In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

    I am middle aged and a want to be healthy. After listening to this book I have become a vegan and have lost 30 lbs in 2 months. I ran marathons before but now I run with purpose.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Ultra?

    Everything! changing what you eat changes what you can become. It's all about discipline and direction.


    Which character – as performed by Rich Roll – was your favorite?

    He was great as himself. Wouldn't have worked if he hd someone read it for him


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It motivated me to be self centered about my health and who I really am

    Story

    June, 1941. Determined that the United States will be prepared for war, Franklin D. Roosevelt and "Wild Bill" Donovan orchestrate the most complex espionage organization in history, the Office of Strategic Services. Young and daring, the OSS assemble under a thin camouflage of diplomacy and then disperse throughout the world to conduct their operations. And no operation is more critical than the one being conducted by hotshot pilot Richard Canidy and his half-German friend Eric Fulmar: to secure the rare ore that will power a top-secret weapon....

    Scott says: "Horrible acting job by the narator."
    "great book not performed well by narrator"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have someone else perform the narrative. Michael Russotto gave no life to the characters and read it like a dissertation. It was a starch contrast to the other titles by this author that are performed by other narrators


    Would you be willing to try another book from W. E. B. Griffin? Why or why not?

    yes, I love his audio books


    What didn’t you like about Michael Russotto’s performance?

    I would not call it a performance. It was a reading.
