    From the author of Argo comes an unforgettable behind-the-scenes story of espionage in action. In the first ever memoir by a top-level operative to be authorized by the CIA, Antonio J. Mendez reveals the cunning tricks and insights that helped save hundreds from deadly situations.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to hear the story continue from where the movie left off. I was a bit surprised at the cussing in the book though as the tv shows didn't have that.

    On June 5, 2002, 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic, Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. She was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life.

    This was an incredible story. I still remember where I was when I heard she had been found and praised God for her rescue. It is so encouraging to hear how she has moved on with her life.
    Being a parent, I now double check my windows and doors. What an awful feeling to know that there are creeps like that in this world. I mean, I knew it before but this just hit a little closer to home.
    Thank you again for sharing your story!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Overall

    The story itself was interesting and the narrarators' voices suited well. However there was so much language and sexually graphic. I was very disappointed. Couldn't finish listening to the book.
