Tough and gritty covert thriller that pulls the main character back into the super secret world and you along with him! The action comes fast and furious with this book as the story unfolds and will keep you pulled in. The main character is a bit unlikable in the fact that he kills good and bad without remorse, but he has enough redeeming qualities so that he’s doesn’t totally put you off. The only complaint that I have with the book is that it doesn’t tell the whole story. You have to get into the other books to see how things really turn out, but since I liked this one so much it’s not really that much of a problem, I just need them to be available in Audiobook!!!
Also Joseph Morton is a great narrator. Haven't disliked one of his performances yet!
Part post-apocalyptic survival novel, part dark comedy and part western, ‘Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse” is a fun and exciting ride through a world ravened by war, natural disasters and economic meltdowns. The characters are quirky, unique and likable and overall this was just a fun book. I highly recommend it for any who likes action and adventure and is looking for a slight change of pace.
Mr. Sowers does a great job with all the characters and really adds to the enjoyment of the book.
A tale of two books ‘Dead: The Ugly Beginning’ is a solid zombie read. The first one third to half of this book is gore, gore and more gore. Everyone who dies does so in terribly painful way. This part of the story is all action and setting the scene for the second half of the book. I didn’t really like this part of the book because it felt more like whip around news coverage of the zombie apocalypse which no story or plot direction. The second half of the story was great as there is a good balance of both gore and action along with an actual plot. The characters are easy to like and wild and the book is well written. Despite the first half I was going to give it four stars but then it ended with no real resolution to the pending story lines which is one of my pet peeves so it’s it gets three starts in my rating but consider it a three start plus book.
Mr McFerrin does a good job with all of the charaters in his narration!
‘Ranger Confidential’ is an uncensored look at those who protect America’s National Parks. Well written and poignant, the book is a must read for those who are thinking about working in the national parks, and those starting to learn about the outdoors. However if you’re looking for something that makes you want to grab your back and head out to the trail look somewhere else. Reading the article about this book in ‘Backpacker’ magazine I knew parts were going to be sad and gory but I figured that they would be interspersed with sun antidotes about pranks or fun times in the back country, but I was wrong. While there are some (very few) times where the beauty of the parks shows through, or something goes write, if you were to believe this book the life of a ranger really sucks. The book seems to say that they pretty much go from one search and rescue to another while getting paid like crap, and after a while it makes the author seem to be a bit whiny.
Ms. Motyka's narration is OK. She does a good job with the various characters and male voices, but at times she sounds a bit electronic.
A great mix of intrigue, comedy and jersey shore which helps take the reader to the beach. Chris Grabenstein does an excellent job of capturing the essence of the Jersey Shore in this well written story which takes more turns than a mad mouse. Grab some scrapple and settle in for a fun ride!
The Ceepak series is one of those where the narrator adds another whole dimension. I think this series is so much more enjoyable as an audio book because of Mr. Woodman's excellent performance.
Man kind is on the edge of extinction as the Lankies take world after world for their own, but humans can’t stop fighting each other. “Lines of Departure” picks up a short while after the first book “Terms of Enlistment” ends and continues to follow Andrew Grayson as he serves in the NAC navy. Book two offers as much action as book one did, and offers a bit more of a glance at what life is like on earth and on the colonies. Highly recommended for the Sci-Fi fan.
Mr. Daniels does an excellent job with the narration, especially when the characters are in the midst of combat. You could almost be listening in to their communications!
“Hurricane Fever” walks a thin line between action thriller and vacation read. The tropical setting makes this book almost serene (if you listen to the audio book the narrator helps), while the characters rush headlong into a conspiracy they didn’t wish for. With a good balance of character development, plot progression and action this well written thriller is a fun and interesting listen.
Mr. Onayemi does a wonderful job with the narration brining the characters to life with all of their various accents.
A little too short to be a proper story it’s a fun quick listen that gets you interested in the series and introduces you to the characters a bit. Full of action and a bit of humor I think it’s gotten me hooked on the series!
Mt Morgan does an excellent job in the narration!
“Eat and Run’ is an interesting look at the world of ultramarathons from one of the sport’s most prolific runners. Taking the reader on a journey from his childhood through the time spent at the top of his profession, the author give insight on how he helped make himself into an ultramarathoner and take you along to all the highs and lows he’s faced in some of his bigger races. This is a great read for runners or just anyone looking to make a change in their life. Note that the end of the book has some of the recipes he’s mentioned throughout the story, so if you get the audio version of the book they’re read to you, but they’re a bit hard to follow and reference that way.
Mr. Dunn-Baker does a great job at bringing the story to life. When Dusty was yelling at Scott I felt as if he was yelling at me!
I really like Mark Tufo’s work but much of his allure (to me anyways) is that he has characters which make the story funny (Mike Talbot) in between all the action and gore, ‘Calis Rose’ however doesn’t have this. It’s a very dark with all the gore and excitement you expect from Mark Tufo but it’s lacking a hero to root for.
Normally I don't like male narrators when a female is the main character (and vise versa) but Mr. Runnette does a good job throughout!
‘Night of the Living Deed” is a well written, fun story for those looking for a little getaway. The story is well crafted and intriguing (I guessed the killer wrong a couple of times) winding its way around and through this sleepy little coastal town. With some great characters and smart quips this book is a fun trip!
Ms. Ronconi does a great job bringing the characters to life and really making the listener feel as if they are right there in this guest house!
