    At 31, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At 29, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle.

    Overall

    There is no way that the author is a man, no men actually feel or act that way. It was a great book, a real tear jerker. I wish I had a man who loved that deep and could express his love that way. Don't get me wrong my husband is awesome.

    When Nathan McBride receives a text message from someone who claims she’s been kidnapped, it triggers a deadly chain of events that has the potential to haunt him for the rest of his life. Nathan will soon learn that nothing from his past could ever prepare him for the crisis he’ll soon be facing. The girl’s name is Lauren and she’s just 12 years old.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Option to Kill to be better than the print version?

    For me Yes. I live on the road.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nathan is a hero but he's relatable; he's not perfect. I like that. I feel smarter than him often enough to believe he's real and he's brilliant enough to be a skilled hero and leave me thoroughly impressed..


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Harv for sure! He nails it.


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

    I sat in the truck in my driveway for an extra 45 minutes to finish book 2 after a 9 hour drive from Phoenix at 1:00am so that oughta tell ya.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep 'em comin'. I always fear an author getting side tracked or getting a new idea and ending a great character. I hope Nathan lives on for a long time!

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"
    ""AWESOME""
    Overall

    I mean "Awesome" in the old definition! Not like "Awesome book dude" but more like "Awesome like looking at the moon". Because of the excellent writing and narration it makes you forget your listening and makes you feel like you're actually part of the scene. I had to sit in my driveway for the last 45 minutes cuz I couldn't wait until the next day. I hope he continues this as a series. Must read!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Overall

    I liked it, don't get me wrong. I just didn't think it was such a great read. I have read some books lately that had me riveted and this wasn't one. I would recommend it but not to emphatically. Maybe it was to hyped up.

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "Unforgetable"
    Overall

    I loved it and recommended to to everyone. Not since Life Of Pi have I been so glued to a book.
