    This no-holds-barred autobiography chronicles the remarkable life of Phil Robertson, the original Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty star, from early childhood through the founding of a family business. Life was always getting in the way of Phil Robertson’s passion for duck hunting. An NFL-bound quarterback, Phil made his mark on Louisiana Tech University in the 1960s by playing football and completing his college career with a master’s degree in English. But Phil’s eyes were not always on the books or the ball; they were usually looking to the sky....

    Raised in the historic southern splendor of Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned all he knows of honor and duty from his father, Dr. Tom Cage. But now the beloved family doctor has been accused of murdering Viola Turner, the African-American nurse with whom he worked in the dark days of the 1960s. Penn is determined to save his father, but Tom, stubbornly invoking doctor-patient privilege, refuses to even speak in his own defense.

    What disappointed you about Natchez Burning?

    I could not even listen to the whole book because the narrator was so awful


    What other book might you compare Natchez Burning to and why?

    I like all of Greg Ilse's Penn Cage books. Whomever set David Ledoux up to do the narration did the book, the author and the series a great disservice.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Ledoux?

    Will Patton


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger because I have absolutely no tolerance for racism and injustice.

    In Christopher Golden’s first horror novel in more than a decade - a work reminiscent of early Stephen King - Snowblind updates the ghost story for the modern age. The small New England town of Coventry had weathered 1,000 blizzards...but never one like this, where people wandered into the whiteout and vanished. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same. Now, as a new storm approaches 12 years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator did a great job.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Berkrot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've heard this voice before, can't remember on what book, does a great job always.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    SCARY!

    When Miranda Barnes first sees the sleepy town of St. Yvette, Louisiana, with its moss-draped trees, above-ground cemeteries, and her grandfather's creepy historic home, she realizes that life as she knew it is officially over. Almost immediately, there seems to be something cloying at her. Something lonely and sad and . . . very pressing.

This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. I listen to a lot of audio books. I often pick the books that I want to listen to by who is doing the narration. The narrator of this book was odd from the first word. Everyting was read extremely roboticly. Narrators of these books most of the time do an wonderful job of assigning a new voice to each character. This narrator could not even remember from sentence to sentence whose voice he was using for which character. UGH!


    What other book might you compare Silver to and why?

    I could not finish the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator. There is a wealth of wonderful male voices to pick from.

    Charlie West just woke up in someone else's nightmare. He's strapped to a chair. He's covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death. The last thing he can remember is that he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really?

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charlie. I loved his outlook on life and his beliefs.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Swanson – was your favorite?

    Charlie. In my mind Joshua Swanson sounds like Charlie would sound.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I read a review from a grandmother about this book before purchasing it. That review is what made me take the chance on getting it. I must say that I would agree with her whole-heartedly, this book is not just for kids. I am 46 and enjoyed it completely.

    A woebegone old car, a harried department store clerk, a monosyllabic man in a sombrero, and a train announcer whose line ran somewhere between Orange County and the Twilight Zone are all memorable characters from The Jack Benny Program, and all the products of a single talented throat: Mel Blanc. "The Man of a Thousand Voices" was Carmichael the Polar Bear, who lived improbably in Jack's cellar.
