    Story

    A larger-than-life hero with a towering personality, Robin Olds was a graduate of West Point and an inductee in the National College Football Hall of Fame for his All-American performance for Army. In World War II, Olds quickly became a top fighter pilot and squadron commander by the age of 22—a double ace with twelve aerial victories. But it was in Vietnam where the man became a legend.

    Overall

    This book is excellent! I listen to 5 to 7 books on tape a month. This is one you do not want to miss. Often like a suspense novel, it puts the listener on the edge of their seats. Knowing that it is a true story makes it even more incredible. Thank goodness the man kept journals during WWII and Vietnam, so that we get the correct facts. What a phenomenal, phenomenal individual. The many famous aviators and celebrities that were in Gen. Olds life are mind boggling. I am near the end of the book and absolutely do NOT want it to end. No wonder the young military personnel of today hold Gen. Olds in such high esteem. Talk about a 'get 'er done' kind of guy. I'd heard that the men in his command would follow him anywhere. This book is a treasure, just like the man. I'll definitely listen to this book again! I want to get a hard copy too, to see the pictures. Often memoirs of great men disappoint, Memoirs of Ace Robin Olds exceeds one's expectations.

    An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in an instant. After picking up her two young children from school, Grace Lawson looks through a newly developed set of photographs. She finds an odd one in the pack: A mysterious picture from perhaps twenty years ago, showing four strangers she can’t identify. But there is one face she recognizes—that of her husband, from before she knew him. When her husband sees the photo that night, he leaves their home and drives off without explanation.

    Story

    Another great Harlan Coben story, however the female voice ruined it The female voice was so irritating, I almost quit. It was like a singer who was tone deaf. Emphasis was on unimportant sentences. I winced at the end of each sentence as the last word was drawn out. I forgot Just One Look had all the negative comments on the female reader. This should be remixed with a different female voice for the benefit of all future listeners. .

    The first week of school becomes a “Week of Hell” when forced busing divides a small southern town during the integration of its school system. The actions of a third-string football player do more than all of the politicians and educators put together to ease the pain of coming together.

    Story

    Who gave this five stars? Friends and family? I gave it one star as I did not think that the review would register unless I clicked on a star. It was so difficult to listen to that I could only tolerate it if listening to it at 2X speed. I love southern voices and listened to The Help three times. This was as if it was read by a second grade reader, word by word. It should be called Read Too Slow. And as far as I could possibly put up with it, and I really tried to give it a chance, the writing was very sophomoric. I want to thank those who gave The Help five stars, as I wouldn't have selected it otherwise. I selected this one by its five stars and I want to save others their time and money. This is the first bad review I have ever written. Unless someone was a slow learner, they could not possible appreciate how Step Too Slow is read, or the way it was written. It seemed to be random thoughts. I'm thinking about requesting my credit back from Audible. I do 76 books a year and this is the first stinker I've had from Audible.
