Another great book by Stephen Ambrose we will miss him as a writer and historian. I found the book insightful and entertaining Ambrose opened this land up for all of us to see as Lewis and Clark saw it. Makes me want to go out and follow the trail they blazed. I live in the Northern Plains and I couldn't imagine living as they did at Ft. Mandan in the winter and have a longing to go back there. They must have been exceptional men.
This book was a tough listen I thought the story was slow developing.
I needed to become engaged with the characters, I found my mind wandering during the listen
I enjoyed this book I was not familiar with the Author; however I thought the story line was interesting. I was not disappointed and I downloaded the next book in the series. I would recommend this book it bring a new approach to the vampire story line.
I think I have read most of Connelly's Harry Bosch novels.This give you a starting point and delves into his tunnel rat experience. If you are a Bosch fan this is a great listen.
I have read or listened to many of Nelson de Mille books this was not his best work and I can't recommend it. This book seemed to be a collection of sarcastic commentary by the main character about his relationship with his ex wife and inlaws. I listened to 2/3 of the book and could not take it anymore. If their was a compeling plotline to hold my attention; I had not discovered it by that time. I recommend any other of the authors titles.
Another great story by Flynn. I have listened or read all of the Mitch Rapp stories and I highly recommend this one, the reader is exceptional and the story fast paced. If you like spy thrillers then Flynn is certainly an author you should explore.
I have read or listened to many books on the subject of the marines and their battle history. This listen will give you a broad overview of all the battles be they on the battle field or in the halls of political power of the marines since WWII. If you are interested in modern marine history this is a great place to start.
This was a great listen well documented account of the battle for this pivotal city in Iraq. You never hear about the brave soldiers and the intense fighting that went on. Well read and well written this is something everyone should listen to no matter what side of the issue you are on. The Author gives you a wide view of all that went into the decision making process to under take this fight.
This was the first book I have listened to by this author and I was pleasently surprised. I knew she was an award winning author but was a little afraid to read any of her stuff thinking it is more in the fantasy genre. I do love a good space opera and this was a excellent one I loved the characters and the wit that the lead character has. I also like the reader who I have listened to on other books he brings just the right cadence to his read. I highly recommend this book and hope more of this seris is put out for us to listen to.
This book is a good example why I like Audible. I would have never picked this book up by looking at the title. The author has combined the 2 genre I love Sci-Fi and a good detective novel. If you like the 2 this is a listen for you. I felt like I couldn't stop listening wanted more and I wanted to solve the mystery .What more could a listener ask for. More of this author please.
I have read/listen to many books about WWII and I rank this with the Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw. The campaign in the Pacific some times is over looked. This is another tremendous story of the heroism and sacrifice that all combat soldiers go through. It again left me with a feeling of gratitude for what that generation did for their children and granchildren. I highly recommend this listen if you have any interest in the personel views of those who where there.
