    Story

    I enjoyed the story, but seemed to drag with not much happening at times. Really unhappy about how the book ends, but suppose left that way to form an opening for the next book.
    Anything read by George Guidall is made better by his reading!!!

    This story kept me laughing and hoping it would not end. I listen to books a lot and It has been a long time since I enjoyed one as much as this one. A good story, easy writing, believable, just a wonderful listen. I will look for more books by David R. Lewis, but he will have a hard time topping this one

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Story

    Was a great history lesson, but the history was so boring I never got to the story (if there was one). I have listened to other Griffin books, but this one just kept on and on, so if there was any story in there I never got to it. I should return the book, but t t t t.

    Not since the publication of his own beloved classic Lonesome Dove has there been a novel like this one, another big, brilliant, unputdownable saga of the West from Larry McMurtry. Telegraph Days is at once a major work of literature and a completely absorbing read, not just great fiction, but fiction on a great scale.

    Story

    Gor this book thinking it was a Western and really it was, but not your normal shootem up roundem up. I really don't like to listen to female narrators but after llistening a while she kinda grew on me. It's a story about girl/woman getting by in the west. Turned out I couldn't stop listening and stayed on to the end and am really glad I did. This story is one that grabs you and you don't want to lay it down (so to speak). Anyway give it a try!!!

    Percy York Goodnight, or Pyg as he prefers, and his mother Revelie travel back to the family ranch in Texas to be reunited with Loving, a man with whom Revelie once shared a passionate affair. He's been shot and is near death, but that is not the only tragedy playing out in the Lone Star State. It seems that the ax of family legend, that once rested in Pyg's father's tombstone, has been stolen. Now Pyg's leading a posse aiming to get it back.

    Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers". A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

    What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Just not up to his normal standard. Too much history and a general lack of action.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Armand Schultz?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Normally I really enjoy his books, but not this one.

    Northeast Mississippi: hill country, rugged and notorious for outlaws since the Civil War, where killings are as commonplace as in the Old West. To Quinn Colson, it's home - but not the home he left when he went to Afghanistan. Now an Army Ranger, he returns to a place overrun by corruption, and finds his uncle, the county sheriff, dead - a suicide, he's told, but others whisper murder.

    Would you listen to The Ranger again? Why?

    It's one I might come back to if I had some time on my hands and no good newer books available.


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    Jeff Woodman's reading was easy to listen to. He does a nice job on different voices for the characters so they are recognizable.

    With only a handful of “tourists” - CIA-trained assassins - left, Weaver would like to move on and use this as an opportunity to regain a normal life, a life focused on his family. His former boss in the CIA, Alan Drummond, can’t let it go. When Alan uses one of Milo’s compromised aliases to travel to London and then disappears, calling all kinds of attention to his actions, Milo can’t help but go in search of him. Worse still, it's beginning to look as if Tourism's enemies are gearing up for a final, fatal blow.
