    In Taylor Anderson's acclaimed Destroyermen series, a parallel universe adds an extraordinary layer to the drama of World War II. Now, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, the crew of the USS Walker, and their allies battle an ever-growing host of enemies across the globe in a desperate battle for freedom.

    Story

    Unless I'm mistaken there were a couple of battles that were rehashed from other books in the series. (IMHO). That was why I gave the story 3stars instead of 4. Other than that it was a very entertaining book.
    William Dufris continues to do excellent work.

    The instinct of the true Porterhouse man faced with a crisis is to reach for the bottle and then to fall back on the subtle tactical skills honed at Cambridge down the centuries: blackmail and kidnap. But will these be enough? Menaced on all sides - by the collapse of the Chapel, by the tentacles of organised crime, and by the hovering threat of the abominable Dog’s Nose Man - will Porterhouse be forced to unleash the most fearsome weapon in its armoury - the college food?

    Early in May 1861, 21-year-old Sam R. Watkins of Columbia, Tennessee, joined the First Tennessee Regiment. He fought in all of its major battles, from Shiloh to Nashville. Twenty years later, with a "house full of young 'rebels' clustering around my knees and bumping about my elbows," he wrote the remarkable account of "Co. Aytch," its common foot soldiers, its commanders, its Yankee enemies, its victories and defeats, and its ultimate surrender on April 26, 1865.

    Tucker says: "Must Have"
    "A very good first person account of the Civil War"

    Story
    Would you listen to Co. Aytch again? Why?

    Yes, because it is the best book of its kind I have listened to.


    What other book might you compare Co. Aytch to and why?

    There are one other books to compare it to.


    What does Pat Bottino bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He captured the emotion of the War both the good and the bad.


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

    No, the entire book was very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first Civil War account that have either read or listened to that told the how the foot solider felt about the Generals that commanded them. That in itself makes this a one of a kind book.

    Jerry Broadfield thinks he's a good cop. But now he's been charged with extortion - and his former buddies in the NYPD would like to see him laid out on a morgue slab for squealing to a committee on police corruption. Suddenly, he's got a lot of enemies, and when a dead call girl turns up in his apartment, his troubles get even bigger. Broadfield screams "setup," but nobody believes him - except ex-policeman, now unlicensed PI Matthew Scudder. Because Broadfield turned traitor no cop is going to give Scudder any help with this investigation, so Scudder's on his own.

    The story is a little weak and boring, but the reader does a good job with what their is to
    work with. I have listened to many Scudder books that are further along in the series.
    The series gets much better.

    In the Pacific, as USS Walker is repaired and updated after a previous battle and Reddy is healing from his wounds, planning begins for a bold raid on the very heart of the Grik Empire. But time is running out for the Alliance army in India, and the Allied forces in the west must gather in an unprecedented land, air, and sea campaign to destroy the mighty Grik battle fleet and break through to their relief. All other plans go on hold when the attempt proves more difficult - and more heartbreakingly costly - than anyone imagined.

    A new addition to the New York Times best-selling Stone Barrington series. After an eventful trip to Bel-Air and a reunion with his sophisticated (and very wealthy) former love, Arrington Calder, Stone Barrington is back in New York, and he's looking to stay closer to home and cash in on his partnership at Woodman & Weld. But Arrington has other plans for Stone... including introducing him to the child he fathered many years ago.

    This book was over the top on a lot of areas. Stone has all the emotion of his name.
    Lets just say that the major loss in stones life has very little effect on him.
    The worst Stone Barrington book I have listened to.

    On the other hand Tony Roberts does his usual great job, and is the only saving grace
    for the book.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Why do publishers/ authors feel the need to change what does not need to be changedthis is the worst book in this series . I have all the audios in this series and this is last one I listen to with this reader.


    Has Shot of Tequila turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Only this series.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    Dick Hill for the male voices Susie Breck for the female like in the earlier books.

    Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals.

    Amazon Customer says: "Odd even for Dexter, but enjoyable!"
    "Good story, bad reader"
    Overall

    It's never a good idea to change readers in a series after starting with an outstanding reader. Jeff Lindsay is a good writer ,but is not the voice of Dexter.
    Two stars for the bad reader, four stars for the story.

    Richard Sharpe, a former private in His Majesty's army who now commands a company of riflemen, finds himself fighting his old enemies, the French, at the extraordinary battle of Barossa in 1811. Sharpe has been sent by the Duke of Wellington on a mission to Cadiz, now the capital of Spain, to rescue the British ambassador, who happens to be Wellington's brother, from a spot of undiplomatic trouble. The city has been blockaded by the French but is supported by the British from the sea.

    I have listened to the previous 10 books and this is the worst one yet.
    Worst reader of the 3 I have listened to.
    First part is nothing but confusion. It a shame an unabridged version is
    not available.

    Stoner knew. The fiery object hurtling toward the Earth was an alien spacecraft. But the world might never know. He was trapped in an iron cordon of secrecy, for the discovery had shattered the world power balance, setting off a brutal struggle for supremacy that raged from the sacred halls of the Vatican to the corridors of the Kremlin and the Pentagon. The forces of fear and treachery would use any weapon at their command, from mind war to sabotage, to keep the world in darkness.

    Noe says: "Not Quite "Rendezvous With Rama""

    Overall

    This is the worst Bova book I have read or listened to.
    The first 80% of the book is a soap opera, the last 20% is just STUPID.
