    Of all our great presidents, Theodore Roosevelt is the only one whose greatness increased out of office. When he toured Europe in 1910 as plain “Colonel Roosevelt,” he was hailed as the most famous man in the world. Crowned heads vied to put him up in their palaces. “If I see another king,” he joked, “I think I shall bite him.”

    Any additional comments?

    Having read the first two books, I was eagerly awaiting this edition. This book was the least compelling of the series and it appears that detailed prose was more important than a compelling read. Too bad.

    If you like Ludlum this is a great one. Hoye does a great job narrating. He doesn't get in the way of the story but enhances it. Definitely a fun book.

    Story
    (46)

    On October 25, 2011, aid worker Jessica Buchanan was kidnapped at gunpoint and held for ransom by an organized band of Somali land pirates. For the next three months, Jessica was terrorized by more than two dozen gangsters. Every terrifying moment Jessica spent suffering in captivity was matched by that of her adoring husband working behind the scenes to deal with her captors. Finally, on January 25, 2012, President Barack Obama ordered a rescue operation by a team of 24 Navy SEALs. Impossible Odds is a harrowing and heart-wrenching memoir of Jessica's kidnapping, her three months in captivity, and her rescue by the Navy SEALs.

    Would you listen to Impossible Odds again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to Impossible Odds again. This is one of the most compelling stories I have experienced in a long time. The narrators were excellent and kept the suspense building. The author does a great job drawing you in and helping you visualize the story. Terrific book!

    Story
    (544)

    The year is 1793, the eve of the Napoleonic Wars, and Horatio Hornblower, a 17-year-old boy unschooled in seafaring and the ways of seamen, is ordered to board a French merchant ship and take command of crew and cargo for the glory of England. Though not an unqualified success, this first naval adventure teaches the young midshipman enough to launch him on a series of increasingly glorious exploits.

    Emrys says: "Superb narration of a great story"

    What did you like best about this story?

    The writer and narrator transport you to another time and place. The story is so well written that you can visualize every detail. The narrator helps the book come alive without getting in the way of the story. It was an exciting book and one that I will likely listen to again.
