    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Would you listen to No Easy Day again? Why?

    Yes, it was such an easy listen. And the narrator talks like a normal person, not all hyped up like other books about SEALs. He shows that the SEAL teams are just normal guys not super humans. And of course the plot of the book is gripping.


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    The narration was clear and had no problems listening to him talk.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually listen to military books, but I'm glad I made an exception.

    In Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends, and colleagues who have blessed his remarkable journey. Willie riffs on everything, from music to poker, Texas to Nashville, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over the course of eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from family, bandmates, and close friends.

    What disappointed you about Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die?

    Do you want to hear Willie talk about what's on TV? Or random sayings like, live in the now? Or do you want to hear twenty other people that you don't know, write about Willie? This isn't an Autobiography or Tales from the road. It is just randomness.... Do you want to hear his lyrics from songs? Or him repeat the same things over again in diff. chapters? Willie needs to fire his editor and stick to music.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything but this. I struggled to finish it.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narration is fine, it's the subject matter and writer that were terrible.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die?

    I would cut about 90% of it. I would keep his past and tales from the road, this would amount to about two chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy this book... if you are curious, go rent it from the library.
