    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    This is another hit for Cussler. The story follows his typical, high-tech thriller-mixed-with-history pattern. However, a different narrator on this book, cools my enthusiasm somewhat. Scott Brick, who narrated all the others we have listened to, adds so much to the quality of the book, and although Jason Culp does an adequate job, he doesn't come up to Brick's standard by a long way.

    When Osama bin Laden was assassinated, the entire world was fascinated by the men who had completed the seemingly impossible mission that had dogged the US government for over a decade. SEAL Team 6 became synonymous with heroism, duty, and justice. Only a handful of the elite men who make up the SEALs, the US Navy's best and bravest, survive the legendary and grueling selection process that leads to Team 6, a group so classified it technically does not even exist. There are no better warriors on Earth.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inside SEAL Team Six?

    The constant bleeps that take out the censored material.

    Having listened to Scott Brick and Ron McLarty, this reader isn't in the same class, but is adequate for the job.

    Can hope be found amidst tragedy? Nestled in the hills on the western side of Jerusalem is a museum called Yad Vashem. There, people from around the world visit daily to learn about the tragic period of history from 1933 to 1945 known as the Holocaust. The museum serves as an education, research, and historical center in remembrance of the six million Jews across Europe who were murdered at the hands of the Nazi Party machine led by Adolf Hitler. A special section of Yad Vashem is dedicated to those who carried out acts of courage to save the lives of Jews during the Holocaust.

    What made the experience of listening to Two Among the Righteous Few the most enjoyable?

    This book was narrated by the author, who was also related to the subjects of the book. I've read many books on this subject matter written by, or about, those who were the participants. This one tells the story of relatives who did everything they could to provide safety and security to a number of Jews during World War 2.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Two Among the Righteous Few?

    What does Marty Brounstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Intimate knowlege of the family and their feelings are evident in his voice as he tells the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The same as the title of the book
