Listening was fine - the book is long. The story is not worth hearing. I'm a huge Met fan and have been my enitre life. Mike was one of my favorite players during his era. I actually have a bobblehead on my desk of him. However, he comes across as a total jerk throughout the book. He gets along with nobody and can never comprhend why? Really? How about some self awareness - if everyone thinks you are a jerk - then maybe you are a jerk. Really disappoining to hear the whinning and crying of a millionaire.
Lonnie yes, Mike no.
After awhile Lonnie became Mike. He did a nice job
I wanted my son to hear the story (he is 10) but its laced with f-bombs. For what reason I have no idea. Maybe Mike wanted to sound tough.
Spoiler alert. Mike was a great player. Mike was a jerk that nobody liked. Mike complains about that fact the entire book. Mike wants more money because he is great. Mike denies rumors. Could have been a short story.
An amazing listen. I've read plenty of books about the Vietnam war, but this was far and away the best. Marlantes lets you fall in love with characters only to then take them away.
The Things They Carried, A Drs Year in Vietnam.
A very difficult story about a very difficult time on our country.
I love that Scott has created a world for his characters
Detail of action and living
Roque - complicated to figure out
An amazing narrator
Great trilogy Can't wait for book number 3.
A new genre for me and at the start I was a bit nervous. But not for long. Great book
Kel - captured the spirit/fear of a high school male student. There is always more to the story.
No, but I plan to.
Kel's girlfriends dad
A great book. I became attached to every single character.
The story was interesting
Great action sequences
Performance was horrible - sounded low budget. Every voice was exactly the same, which made following the story difficult at times.
Great story - kept me on the edge of my car seat
Funny throughout - and tense
