I was married on the day Secretariat won the Triple Crown. I was sitting in the living room, in my wedding dress at 5:30pm June 9, 1973, waiting for the race to begin. I was to be married at 6:30 and had a good 45 minute ride to the church..........but I wasn't gong anywhere until the big red horse ran. When he crossed the finish line and then into history, I felt this was a good sign for my upcoming marriage. And so it has been....... some 38.5 years later.
It starts out SLOWLY, going through all the bloodline history. If you're not a race fan, it's boring. But once you get to the part where Secretariat was born and his journey into greatness and history........you cant stop listening. What a one of a kind champion, who's record times in the Derby, Preakness and certainly the Belmont will probably never be broken. Cant wait to see the movie.
Was hoping for more history of the Coal, Not a platform for this eco nuts bias .
Even if you hate FOX & O'Reilly, dont let that prevent you from listening to this amazing narration of the days leading up to Lincoln's Assassination & details of Lee & Grant. It keeps you spellbound from start to finish. I didn't want it to end. Cant wait for his next book/audio .....KILLING KENNEDY ....to come out later this year.
Everything you need to know......nothing you dont. Might as well take advantage of the information since it's free.
I'm a big fan of Fern Michaels, and got hooked on the Coleman / Thornton family. May I recommend you start with the Texas Series ( Rich, Heat, Fury & Sunrise, then go to her Vegas Series (Rich, Heat & Sunrise) and finish the collection with her Kentucky Series ( Rich, Heat and Sunrise). If you read them in this order, you'll understand the family timeline and dynamic. Once you get started on this Saga, you wont want to stop. I'm not much of a "fiction" person, but I LOVED these 10 books and her style of writing. The narrator was excellent as well. You'll be facinated, entranced, entertained, surprised and amused. Great writter, great stories
Still remember the day we got our first color TV and one of the first programs we watched Star Trek in all it's colorful glory. William Shatner gives a good narration and keeps your interest. Funny, Sad, Interesting, Informative.......... it's well worth your listening time if your a Trekkie fan
Not a listen for everyone to be sure, but if you're into the Medical field, or are just interested in what happens to you after you pass, or donate your body to medical research........it's facinating, funny, informative, graphic, at times gruesome with a touch of the macabre.
