    They were the leaders, the men who made the decisions that change the outcome of battles... and the fate of continents. From the awesome landing at Normandy to the torturous campaigns of the South Pacific, from the frozen hills of Korea to the devastated wastes of Dien Bien Phu, they had earned their stars. Now they led America’s finest against her most relentless enemy deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia. It was a new kind of war, but the Generals led a new kind of army, ready for battle - and glory...

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Some of the series are not as good as others, but I love them all. I especially like the books about WWII & the series about Argentina. A bit before my time, but right in line, generally, with history.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ken McCoy was the most adventurous to me.


    Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This one is excellent. I was very surprised at the number of voices he can use.

    Lady Georgiana Rannoch has once again been called into service by Her Majesty the Queen. This time she's sent to Nice on a secret assignment that's nothing to sneeze at: recover the Queen's stolen snuff box. As much of an honor as it is to be trusted by Her Majesty, an even greater honor awaits Georgie in Nice - as Coco Chanel herself asks Georgie to model her latest fashion. But when a necklace belonging to the Queen is stolen on the catwalk, Georgie has to find two priceless items-and solve a murder. How's a girl to find any time to go to the casino?

    Where does Naughty in Nice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved the whole series. Just finishing the last book. I would enjoy others written by Bowen and narrated by Kellgren. I hope to find some. Loved the period of the '30's, the fictional perspective of Queen Mary and other Royals. Fiction or truth, I liked them all.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    What did you love best about The Litigators?

    If you have the time it's a great book to listen to on a long journey. The problem with doing that is that if you don't have enough time to complete the whole book before you return home, you might have to do as we did and get two copies so we could finish it. Grisham is one of my very favorite novelists and I am loving using my spare time listening to books.


    Any additional comments?

    To the hearing challenged: The VA recently gave me a new set of hearing aids that are 'blue tooth' compatible. They have helped my general hearing quite a bit, and I enjoy the cell phone ringing 'in my head' so that I don't have to pick up an instrument to hear and to talk. The best feature of the new 'gadget' is that I can listen to audio books, music and sermons 'in my head'. It's better than wearing headphones without the pressure that the headphones cause around your ears and you don't have to remove or adjust your hearing aid. I am spending much more time listening to books now.

    An abridged version of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, starring Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck. Anna (Bergman) is a wife and mother who has an affair with the handsome Count Vronsky (Peck).

    What did you like best about Anna Karenina (Dramatised)? What did you like least?

    I did not care for this dramatized version of a great story. When I have the time I will listen to the unabridged version. Tolstoy is too fine an author to shorten like this. Not my cup of tea for sure.

  • Midway: The Battle That Doomed Japan, the Japanese Navy's Story

    This landmark study was first published in English by the Naval Institute in 1955. Widely acknowledged for its valuable Japanese insights into the battle that turned the tide of war in the Pacific, the book has made a great impact on American readers over the years. Two Japanese naval aviators who participated in the operation provide an unsparing analysis of what caused Japan's staggering defeat.

    Would you listen to Midway again? Why?

    I have not read historial/military reports of these vital WW II battles from the Japanese perspective. This was reasonable and without too much defensiveness. I really enjoyed seeing the 'other side' and would like to read/hear more stories of battles especially written by high ranking officers of the 'other side'.
