    Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 50 years, you're aware of the many hypotheses that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was not done by one man. Whether you've listened to one or a dozen of the audiobooks on this topic, there's no way to fully grasp the depth of this conspiracy. For the first time ever, New York Times best-selling authors Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell have teamed up with some of the most respected and influential assassination researchers to put together the ultimate compendium that covers every angle - from the plot to the murder - of JFK.

    And this guy was a governor!

    Real fiction.

    Performance was OK.

    Theirs was the most captivating American political partnership since Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger: a bold and untested president and his seasoned, relentless vice president. Confronted by one crisis after another, they struggled to protect the country, remake the world, and define their own relationship along the way. In Days of Fire, Peter Baker chronicles the history of the most consequential presidency in modern times through the prism of its two most compelling characters, capturing the elusive and shifting alliance of George Walker Bush and Richard Bruce Cheney as no historian has done before.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Would you listen to American Sniper again? Why?

    Chris Kyle was a great American and this book tells the real story of fighting terrorism not the liberal media spin .A great listen all Americans should thank our service men and woman for their service listen to this book and you will. My only criticism is there wasn't an epilogue noting his murder.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chris Kyle goes without saying


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

    Does a good job lively animation


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

    Yes

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The worst narration I ever listened to.The narrator when using dialogue used an urgent and loud tone no matter what the situation was. It was like telling someone to" CALL 911" loud and urgent, it was so annoying. When the narrator had to portray a woman the voice sounded like a whiny five-year-old.The story about people madden by a virus goes on hour after hour with seemingly no progress in the story. I finally stopped listening halfway through. I would strongly recommend looking for another book other than this one.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bobby Adair again?

    Maybe but unlikely.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    As written about so bad could keep listening.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Slow Burn: Box Set 1-3?

    About 3 hours of it.

    Stay away from this book.

    With Rebel-in-Chief, veteran political reporter Fred Barnes provides the defining book on George W. Bush's presidency, giving an insider's view of how Bush's unique presidential style and bold reforms are dramatically remaking the country, and, indeed, the world. In the process, Barnes shows, the president is shaking up Washington and reshaping the conservative movement.

    Where does Rebel-in-Chief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Liberal will hate this book because it tells the truth about George W Bush ,what he accomplished and what his vision for America was. Finally somebody had the guts to write a book based on facts not name calling and untruths about a President that fought terrorism and protected America. Loved this book.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    How much President Bush did while in office unlike the current President.

    A Cure to Die For is a medical thriller about a wonder drug, a miracle cure and a conspiracy to destroy it. A genetically engineered cure for the common cold - a simple, inexpensively grown plant - turns out to be a cure for cancer and threatens to make most other drugs obsolete. The discovery triggers a crisis of medical, corporate and political greed that sweeps the country as the government and the media conspire with Big Pharma to keep the miracle drug off the market.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A liberal lunatic.


    What could Stephen G. Mitchell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write a believable story not make a political statement. His characters broke countless laws which is OK as long as it is for a cause.
    I hated the woman lead character Cid.


    Did Chuck Driscoll do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    A good job of narration. The actors did a reasonable job.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None whatsoever.


    Any additional comments?

    Avoid anything written by this author.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This was not a legal thriller. The 4th book in the series is the worst. What once was a good series only got worse with each book. This book showed the author's liberal view. The narrator made the main character Sasha McCandless sound 9 years old and her boyfriend 90. It as so painful to listen to her try to sound male. Don't waste a credit of your time on this one.


    Has Indispensable Party turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She can't do male voices.

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.
