    The attack on Pearl Harbor swept America into the raging heart of the war. The stormy South Pacific presented a daring new challenge, and the men of the Corps were ready to fight. An elite fraternity united by a glorious tradition of courage and honor, the Marine Raiders were bound to a triumphant destiny.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is a well written story that shows how things were back then and how some of those attitudes still exist in parts of the country.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Having multiple narrators made this story so much more realistic. I wish more books were done this way.

    Story
    (56)

    In 1975, coach Harlan Brown is hiding from his past at an obscure New York college, after he was fired from Penn State University on suspicion of being gay. A tough, lonely ex-Marine of 39, Harlan has never allowed himself to love another man. Then Billy Sive, a brilliant young runner, shows up on his doorstep. He and his two comrades were just thrown off a major team for admitting they are gay. Harlan agrees to coach the three boys under strict conditions that thwart Billy's growing attraction for his mature but compelling mentor.

    Donald says: "A Surprisingly Great Love Story"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Because it is a very well written book and the performance was excellent. I hope that they do more of her books. I read this book as I walked and I always ended up walking longer than planned because I did not want to stop listening. This book was written a while ago but a lot of the issues of bullying and obtaining equal rights are as valid today as when the book was first written.

    The narrator did a awesome job and look forward to hearing more from Christian.


    What other book might you compare The Front Runner to and why?

    Conduct Unbecoming because it also discusses the struggle for equal rights.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To many to choose from but love the part where they finally admit they love each other.


    If you could rename The Front Runner, what would you call it?

    I believe "The Front Runner" is a perfect title and I would not change it.

    From Shanghai to Wake Island, the Corps was America’s first line of defense as the winds of war exploded into the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This is the story of the men of the Marine Corps, their loves and loyalties, an elite fraternity united by courage and honor, as they steel themselves for battle, prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice....

    Would you listen to Semper Fi again? Why?

    I have read the book and really enjoyed the series and it was nice to get to listen to it this time. It is a really captivating book and a great series. I am sure that I will return to this book again in the future. It was easy to listen to and was well done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That is a series and this sets the stage for a lot of what will follow.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He does a good job bringing the characters to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the whole series was available. I love listening to the stories when I go on a walk. Makes the time go fast and make me want to walk more so I can continue to listen to the story.
