    Jack Reacher jumps off a bus and walks fourteen miles down a country road into Margrave, Georgia. An arbitrary decision he's about to regret. Reacher is the only stranger in town on the day they have had their first homicide in 30 years. The cops arrest Reacher and the police chief turns eyewitness to place him at the scene. As nasty secrets leak out, and the body count mounts, one thing is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

    Don't Piss-off Reacher


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack was awesome but great attention was played to each character and I know that I am going to enjoy following this series.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    His voice is amazing and kept me engaged at all times. My morning walks went from 1hr to 2hrs during this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was never much of a reader till recently and its books like this that really make me wish had started earlier.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

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

    Yes, the story is excellent as is the narration. If you like a story backed up by sensible science and lots of if then this book is for you. The story is believable.


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

    Loved the tone of his voice, it engaged well with the story.

    What did you love best about Ready Player One?

    Story was pretty solid although some plot points were a bit hard to believe but the fun allowed you to suspend belief just this once. Wil Wheaton did a great job with the narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ready Player One?

    It was different to what I had encountered before and really pleasant read. I really enjoyed the nostalgia, it gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.


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

    Good job Wil.


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

    If I had the time I would have gotten through this in one or two sittings but I like to pace myself to enjoy the story more.

    Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But the fun stops the day Andy's dad, Paterson, New Jersey's legendary ex-DA, drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium.

    What did you love best about Open and Shut?

    It captured my interest I loved the story and the pace.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Story was interesting and characters were explained well. I was never bored.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't want to spoil it for others.


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

    If I had more time I would, story was a bit short though I hope his others are longer.


    Any additional comments?

    Could have been longer. 6.5 hours is too short or should be 1/2 a credit.
