    A middle-aged, overweight, and acrophobic newspaper editor Tom Ryan and a little dog, Atticus M. Finch, are an unlikely pair of mountaineers, but after a close friend dies of cancer, the two pay tribute to her by attempting to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshire's four-thousand-foot peaks twice in one winter. Tom and Atticus set out on an adventure of a lifetime that takes them across hundreds of miles and deep into an enchanting but dangerous winter wonderland. Little did they know that their most difficult test would lie ahead, after they returned home. Following Atticus is ultimately a story of transformation....

    "I'm still thinking about Atticus weeks later!"

    If you could sum up Following Atticus in three words, what would they be?

    Unforgettable, heartwarming, and inspiring.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course it was the main character, Atticus. His friend the author, Tom, made him come to life as I listened to the story. I have a little dog that I walk every morning while listening to books on my ipod. My dog became Atticus to me.


    What about Tom Ryan’s performance did you like?

    It was heartfelt and loving towards his dog and his father.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I cried several times but the one I remember is when Atticus received his award.


    Any additional comments?

    Since reading this book I've searched the internet for more pictures of Atticus and wish I could meet him in person.

    Characters and humor.

    Don't know.


    Any additional comments?

    It is very, very long and I'm not even 1/3 through yet. Sometimes the volume drops a bit but that is the only problem I have had.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if they like a wonderful romance.

    There were many, many wonderful moments. I just love a happy ending and great romance, along with lots of excitement and "bad guys" who get what they deserve.

    New York Times best-selling author C. J. Box delivers a novel starring Joe Pickett’s sidekick: fan favorite Nate Romanowski.

    In Force of Nature, trouble comes calling from Nate’s past in the Special Forces, and the colleague he once called a friend won’t stop until those who know a deadly secret are silenced. Everyone close to Nate is at risk, including Joe and his family. To save them, Nate will have to convince law-abiding Joe to finally break a few rules along the way.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Force of Nature to be better than the print version?

    I loved this as an audiobook because listening to the book made me slow down and savor all the beautiful descriptions of the mountains, wilderness, weather, etc. It makes you feel like you are right there. When reading a print book I sometimes read too fast and skim over the descriptions.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the setting (western mountains and wilderness) and the action was non-stop.

    John Rain is back. And “the most charismatic assassin since James Bond” (San Francisco Chronicle) is up against his most formidable enemy yet: the nexus of political, military, media, and corporate factions known only as the Oligarchy. When legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, Rain can’t resist the offer: a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America. But the opposition on this job is going to be too much for even Rain to pull it off alone.

    Andrew Stone says: "Fast paced read..."
    "Action fun all the way"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe. Most of my friends don't like this type of story.(I am a 70 year old women and my friends read biographies and romance..)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rain. He is smart, thoughtful and well prepared and likes adventure.


    Have you listened to any of Barry Eisler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. This was my first.


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

    No, I just couldn't stop listening.
