    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This purchase was a mistake. There is no relationship between what this author does and what Vince Flynn is able to do. The reader's voice is irritating - he needs to find a different line of work. Every time I heard


    What could Andrew Peterson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The writing needs work to be more realistic/believable and entertaining. And the Harvey/McBride relationship borders on suspicious. What is up with that? Tone it down a bit.


    How could the performance have been better?

    His voice is not for me - sorry.


    What character would you cut from First to Kill?

    What was the purpose of Bruce?


    Any additional comments?

    Meh.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    I could listen to this woman for ten more hours - she is funny and witty. So my only complaint is that the book is only 5 hours. I guess I can just listen to it again. The fact that she was able to get permission from SNL to include audio from the show in the book is great - loved that.

    Here is a tour de force of American politics from one of journalism's most acclaimed commentators. History turns on a dime. A missed meeting, a different choice of words, and the outcome changes dramatically. Nowhere is this truer than in American politics, and in three dramatic narratives based on memoirs, histories, oral histories, fresh reporting with journalists and key participants, and Jeff Greenfield's own knowledge of the principal players, he shows just how extraordinary those changes would have been.

    Overall

    First section is almost worth buying the book for. After that the author got carried away simulating what would have happened if Robert Kennedy had not been killed. It goes on for way too long. The author seems to think highly of the Kennedy's and gets progressively more generous in inventing a different future that could have been with Bobby becoming Prez. Not planing to buy from this author again.
