    Philosopher, Broadway headliner, fighter, felon - Mike Tyson has defied stereotypes, expectations, and a lot of conventional wisdom during his three decades in the public eye. Bullied as a boy in the toughest, poorest neighborhood in Brooklyn, Tyson grew up to become one of the most thrilling and ferocious boxers of all time - and the youngest heavyweight champion ever. But his brilliance in the ring was often compromised by reckless behavior.

    The Camp Ryder Hub is broken. Lee is nowhere to be found, and his allies are scattered across the state, each of them learning that their missions will not be as easy as they thought. Inside the walls of Camp Ryder, a silent war is brewing, between those few that still support Lee's vision of rebuilding, and the majority that support Jerry's desire for isolation. But this war will not remain silent for long.

    It's hard to find a great zombie apocalypse series that gets better book by book, but this one does just that.

    To Captain Lee Harden, Project Hometown feels like a distant dream and the completion of his mission seems unattainable.

In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.

    From the Audie-nominated narrator of The Martian. In eleven years' time, a million members of an alien race will arrive at Earth. Years before they enter orbit, their approach will be announced by the flare of a thousand flames in the sky, their ships' huge engines burning hard to slow them from the vast speeds needed to cross interstellar space. These foreboding lights will shine in our night sky like new stars, getting ever brighter until they outshine even the sun, casting ominous shadows and banishing the night until they suddenly blink out.

    What did you love best about Fear the Sky?

    There is a lot going on throughout the entire book. There are several characters and R.C. Bray does a terrific job(as he ALWAYS does) giving each one their own distinct voice, and that helps keep up with the different people.


    What about R.C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    Great as always. Differences in each character makes it easy to keep up with all the different characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Just because you the sky looks clear, doesn't mean you shouldn't FEAR THE SKY!!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fairly long book with a lot of moving pieces so there is a Lot of set-up necessary. But, once it gets going, it really takes off. I really enjoyed the entire book.

    After nearly four years, the zombie epidemic has almost burnt itself out. Gus' new life on a communal farm is peaceful. The daily routine of policing the fields is rarely disrupted by straying undead. His drinking binges are over. Long days have thrown time over the memories of Annapolis. But this will all change.

    Excellent way to finish a series. Rc Bray does a terrific job narrating this very well written book. This is much more than just a zombie book. There's like 3 stories that all blend together throughout the story and Keith Blackmore wrote it all flawlessly. I didn't hear a dull minute. BRAVO!!!

    Stuck in a job he no longer found fulfilling, journalist Mike McIntyre felt his life was quickly passing him by. So one day he hit the road to trek from one end of the country to the other with little more than the clothes on his back and without a single penny in his pocket. Through his travels, he found varying degrees of kindness in strangers from all walks of life - and discovered more about people and values and life on the road in America than he'd ever thought possible.

    This is a great adventure book. The narrator did such a great job that I forgot he didn't actually write this book. I really enjoyed the interview between the narrator and author at the end.

    Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Rob Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

    What did you love best about Love Life?

    Mostly just his telling of how important his family is to him.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Rob Lowe is a great narrator. The way he set up and told a story kept me interested throughout. It's hard for me to find a good narrator that I like, and rob Lowe is one of my fav's.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Lowe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, not YET!


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

    Yes, but it took 2.


    Any additional comments?

    I would defiantly listen to another book narrated by Rob Lowe. I enjoyed his tone and pace. That and his stories really kept me interested through the entire book.

    With his goofy smile, sleepy eyes, and stoner's laugh, Jim Breuer might not appear to be the most introspective comedian out there. The fact that Jim Breuer made his mark playing Goat Boy on Saturday Night Live and a recalcitrant toker in the stoner classic Half Baked doesn't help his reputation at all. But in I'm Not High, we meet a whole new Jim Breuer.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Jim's stories about his dad


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Each time jim came too a crossroad in his life, maybe a "higher power" was looking over his shoulder too help him out.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I spent 2 days listening to this book, non-stop. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
