    Karnazes reveals the mind-boggling adventures of his nonstop treks through the hell of Death Valley, the incomprehensible frigidity of the South Pole, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains and canyons of the Sierra Nevada.

    What did you love best about Ultramarathon Man?

    This book gives all perspective on what a human can accomplish if they want to try hard enough. This example leans heavily on physical accomplishment but can be taken as inspiration toward any achievement.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Dean's ability to write about something he loves as well as inspire the common man. You could argue that Dean has a special physical gift but more likely he has an ability to use his brain and his heart to achieve what most would not dare to do. I also like Dean's strong relationship with his family and is desire to help others while doing something he truly loves.


    What about James Yaegashi’s performance did you like?

    I did not feel like I was being read to but more that a story was being told to me. Some of the pauses were a bit long but once I got used to that all was great.

    Story
    (2654)

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"

    What did you love best about Kill Decision?

    I think the authors ability to transport the reader into the story. I can see in my mind the exciting story taking place as though I am there.


    What other book might you compare Kill Decision to and why?

    Demon and Freedom are similar style and just as exciting. The same narrator read these books and did a phenomenal job on those books too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were many favorites for me but the HALO jump and the final approach on the cargo ship probably are most memorable.
