    The year is 2032. The NRA has been outlawed; the U.S. military has been gutted; Conservative Christians, dubbed ANARKS, have been labeled a global conspiracy and have been largely driven underground. The Caliphate is now a superpower, residing in Israel. The White House is occupied by a repressive Progressive regime, obsessed with the upcoming presidential election.

    Would you try another book from Oliver North and/or Peyton Tochterman?

    Oliver North - maybe; Peyton Tochterman - NEVER!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peyton Tochterman?

    ANYONE!


    Any additional comments?

    The story had potential (other than Oliver North's self-aggrandizing mention of himself several times), but the narrator was horrible. I just wanted the book to be over so I wouldn't have to listen to his stumbling mispronunciations. His occasional attempts at a Scottish (?) accent were so pathetic as to not even be laughable. This book's potential was totally ruined by the narrator, who sounded like he was sight reading at about a 3rd grade level. I kept checking to see how much longer the book was going to last. Should've just given up on it, returned it for a refund, and saved myself the frustration!

    In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark - as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

    Story

    This story really brings home how lucky/blessed we are to be Americans and points out all the things we take for granted - sometimes to the point of abusing them. In addition to having a very interesting life that holds your attention, Craig's heartfelt reading of his life's story adds to the intensity of his desire to get to America and his gratitude at becoming a citizen.

    One generally doesn't think of Scotland as a place to want to get away from, but then one realizes the vast difference our freedom of religion gives to who you know, like, love and associate with.

    I had not known before that he was a alcohol/drug addict. He tells the story of his addictions, rehab and recovery with an openness and honesty that is at times brutal. He doesn't soften any aspect of his struggle with his demons.

    I rate this book very highly for its content and message. And listening to Craig for 7 and a half hours isn't hard to take either!
