The flow of the book presented the case from beginning to end in a cogent and logical progression.
It was very in depth and detailed. I don't know what could have made it better.
When Jesse told his attorney that he didn't know why people kept saying that he worshiped "Satin" [sic] Poor Jesse, borderline retarded, didn't even know what "Satan" was although he was being accused of being a devil worshiper. How poetic.
Just a fantastic book and performance.
Yes, it is an uplifting story of an American hero.
Describing how he made it through the Japanese POW camp.
Louis Zamperini, of course.
War is Hell?
Very good read. The first part of the book was a bit draggy, but it got interesting when it got to the war part.
Yes, there were times when my mind wandered away from the story. I would gain a greater appreciation with a second listen.
I liked it when the main character solved a puzzle on his first try, then met another player signing on who had tried to solve it many times, but failed. He then tries to trick her into thinking this was his first time and he failed.
Yes, but I couldn't
Just a truly original story that is bright and fresh.
I haven't read the print version.
Dave Mustaine, of course. That one is obvious.
I have not listened to others, but this one is very good.
Welcome to a Head Banger's Memoir.
Funny, Engaging, and Honest
Chef Hamilton opened her life and told her story....the good, the bad, and the ugly. I appreciate the honesty that she shows in describing her life.
Her inflections when telling stories make the book more interested and those don't translate to the printed word.
Yes, but I couldn't
I wish other chefs like David Burke, Wiley DuFresne, and Thomas Keller would write similar books.
I didn't read the print version.
The beginning and the end of the book were interesting. The middle part was a little slow. I would have liked to hear more about what the prison life was like which is a bit glossed over.
Interesting, adequate, and fine.
How a young man's error cost him 3 1/2 years of his life.
I recommend this book and am also interested in The Aquariums of Pyongyang.
Unless you want to listen to a highly fictionalized account of the Lincoln assassination, it's not for anyone.
It was well written and well thought out, but there are just too many false statements in the book to be taken seriously as a historical account.
I can't wait to see how O'Reilly butchers the Kennedy Assasination!!!!
