I appreciated this book. I learned a lot about modern warfare and the SEALs in particular. Unfortunately, the production of this audiobook was lacking in several ways. When there was a need to dub over a section where an error must have been made the voice sounded out of place like it was not the narrator. There were at least 12 times that the book also reread a sentence or phrase which became annoying. I appreciate Mr. Denver writing this book, it is too bad the audiobook quality did not equal the writing.
Wow! I grew up watching Tim Conway and his gang. Listening to his stories about how he came to Hollywood and mastered the world of comedy was a great ride. Thanks for sharing, Tim! Looking forward to "Son of..."
I have watched several Frankenstein movies and always thought I knew the story. Boy was I ever wrong. I did not know how lyrical and poetic the story really is. Mary Shelly's book is a wonderful story. I love Dan Stevens' narration as he made the story come alive.
Doc is a refreshing look at the life of one of the greatest young pitchers of all time. I remember his rookie year, the World Series year and I remember the struggles with drugs. I am thankful he took an honest look at himself and presented it in a way that may help others become honest with themselves. Having worked in Substance Abuse Treatment I appreciate how he finally realized that being open and honest made life better. After all, "If you hide nothing, you have nothing to hide."
Steven and Tom nailed this one. I appreciated how the money for their part of this is going to American Vets...Thanks guys!!!
Thomas Jefferson understood that the Barbary Pirates were a problem...and today they are still causing some problems. The events surrounding Captain Phillips tested the patience of a nation, but in the end it worked out well. This is another time I thank God for the training of Navy Seals...and all SF personnel.
...is you don't talk about Fight Club. Well, the book was very helpful in understanding the details of the mental illness that is present in the story. The movie left a lot to be desired in this realm. This is a well written story that helps one better understand the mind of a dissociative client.
George Smiley is a delicious character which captures my attention. It sort of feels a little like Columbo, but the books take me into the past as well. I enjoyed this story which proves that anyone can lie...and they often do.
John Grisham has done it again. He has spun a story that held my attention throughout. I love how he can develop a story and create a picture with words. Be sure to read the end of Chapter 30...what a picture of what a Christian should be...
I have held onto too many things for too long. I have begun to let go of some of those things and I am feeling lighter...I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to get a better handle on what "stuff" you have in your home or office.
I was expecting more of the story similar to the movie. What I got instead was a commercial like a "Making of...". It was interesting to listen to how the movie came together, how much of a struggle it was to get financed but it was really more of a commercial to entice me to go watch the movie. I should not have had to pay $8 in order to be cajoled into going to a movie. Skip the audio book, go see the movie.
