    Story
    What does Thomas Block bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Thomas Block orates his new audiobook Open Skies with the gravitas of a senior airline captain. His protagonist Jack Sawyer is a former commercial aviator turned private investigator after his airline fails, and he sours to idea of starting the airline seniority system again from the bottom. When an insolent co-pilot turns up dead—squished between the industrial, hydraulic, lifting joists of a catering truck—the airline’s CEO calls upon Jack to explore the probability of foul play. The first clues arrive in the form of barely-missing bullets fired from an unknown, handgun-wielding adversary. Retired Captain Block salts his novel with airport, airline, and aircraft details using his skill as an experienced industry insider.

    Sure to rank as one of the greatest aviation memoirs ever written, Viper Pilot is an Air Force legend's thrilling eyewitness account of modern air warfare. From 1986 to 2006, Lt. Col. Dan Hampton was a leading member of the Wild Weasels, the elite Air Force fighter squadrons whose mission is recognized as the most dangerous job in modern air combat. Weasels are the first planes sent into a war zone, flying deep behind enemy lines purposely seeking to draw fire from surface-to-air missiles and artillery. They must skillfully evade being shot down - and then return to destroy the threats, thereby making the skies safe for everyone else to follow.

    Story

    Both the story and narration rocked like laser-guided stinger munitions. Told with the authority and swagger of a true fighter jock. The scenes were absolutely captivating. My only small complaint is that the breath-holding scenes were separated by a lot of telling. Still, I highly recommend this book, and it offers a lot of insight into the military aviation world.

    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    I love this author’s concept of Florida turned inside out. I read Lucky You, and listened to Skinny Dip. Both help my rapt attention.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    As a Tom Clancy who has read all of the Jack Ryan series, I was glad to try this latest installment as an audiobook. Professionally produced from pen to microphone. Well done.

    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....

    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    Tina Fey is a great reader.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tina Fey? Why or why not?

    Maybe, depending on the content.


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    Well told and recorded. Tina has a great speaking voice.


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

    No, i listen while bike riding and divide it into appropriate chunks.


    Any additional comments?

    At one point tina says, "If you're a man, well, thanks for buying this book." I think it should have been more obvious that this is a story targeted strictly for women. I expected more gender-neutral comedy, and less about old-fashioned maxi-pads, fashion, and maintaining a woman's body. I expected more like the SNL political insert.
