Very well written and superbly narrated. A great story of the Mossad and their determination at meeting out justice. If you liked the movie "Munich", you'll love this audio book. Striking Back goes into far more detail than the movie could. You won't be sorry!
Awesome Earth Science
I don't think so, but I really like his delivery. Great job.
For anyone who is in awe of the incredible forces of nature, this is a great listen dealing with tectonics in general, but centered around the San Andreas fault zone. The book has a great balance of technical information (explained for laymen like me), and the history of various earthquakes that have occurred.
Just about anything would be an improvement. Sadly, almost the ENTIRE book is a list of dates and associated activities, such as one missile being removed from its silo and placed into another, or a new replacement part being installed in a given missile. It actually sounds like the narrator is just reading down a maintenance log.
At the risk of repeating myself, the author could have written something that was far more pleasant to listen to than a seemingly interminable laundry list of missile maintenance, upgrades, movement, etc. I don't think the audio sample on Audible.Com was representative of what the rest of the audiobook is like.
No. I hate to say it, but I think I wasted a credit on this one. The audio sample sounded great.
Okay, I've never written a book, so I have no idea how difficult it is. I admit it. But, it almost sounds like the author just grabbed reams and reams of Air Force missile maintenance logs, placed them in chronological order, then called it a book.
Anybody. Mickey Mouse, perhaps? Bugs Bunny? His narration was so painful, that I couldn't get past the first hour of the audio book.
Oh, Lord, no!!!!!
I'll start by saying that even as a child, Ancient Egypt has held a special fascination for me; The pyramids, temples, pharaohs, and the Nile. But, I've never really thought about the common person. The Egyptian is a great story of one such common man.
The narration is great.
My only beef with this book is the narrator. There is something that sounds so ridiculous when a woman tries to sound like a man. Seriously, it reminds me of my kindergarten teacher telling a story.
Given the billions of galaxies in the Universe, I imagine the Universe is teeming with life. So, why HAVEN'T we heard from any of them? This book examines the paradox in simple terms that even lay people can appreciate.
I'm one of those people who believe that 99.999% of all 'UFO' sightings are easily explainable as natural phenomena, hoaxes, schizophrenia, or misidentified aircraft. However, there is that .001% that defies explanation...
This book approaches the subject of UFO's in that same light, using ONLY the most credible reports from people who have nothing to gain.
I read Bourne's first book and wasn't real impressed. I downloaded this one in the hopes of some improvement. I hate to say it, but it feels like a wasted credit.
It's nice to see that al-qaeda is subject to the same backbiting, backstabbing, and dissent that any corporation in America is prone to. It's also important for Americans to understand how systemic failures on the part of our government lead to the disaster that was 9/11.
I have to give major kudos to the FAA. They did a miraculous thing on 9/11: they landed about 6,000 planes in our nation's skies within a few hours. This was something that had never been anticipated or practiced before.
It's very enlightening to listen to the politician 'inquisitors' who had months to second guess the FAA's actions. The grandstanding of the politicians is truly nauseating.
