    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Where does Unbroken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Unbroken ranks among the top audiobooks I have been able to listen to so far. A story of amazing athleticism, war, survival, enslavement, perseverance, hatred, love, and grace. Not many true stories touch so many powerful topics, and still have a wonderful ending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Louis of course! The man is a beast! He's incredible.


    Which character – as performed by Edward Herrmann – was your favorite?

    Louis still wins here.


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

    An Unbelievable Story of an Unbreakable Man!


    Any additional comments?

    God is good. I'm glad He was able to work on and use Louis. This was a very motivating biography. When compared to this man's life, what do we have, in life, to complain about?

    "Call me Ishmael." Thus starts the greatest American novel. Melville said himself that he wanted to write "a mighty book about a mighty theme" and so he did. It is a story of one man's obsessive revenge-journey against the white whale, Moby-Dick, who injured him in an earlier meeting. Woven into the story of the last journey of The Pequod is a mesh of philosophy, rumination, religion, history, and a mass of information about whaling through the ages.

    Story

    I gave it a try because it's a classic. Too many tangents that last way too long. Developed concepts and ideas that don't add to the story line. The old English was fun to listen to, but all in all, I would rather have listened to something else. My apologies to all you who love this book. This is just my opinion.

  • American Wolf: A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West

    Before men ruled the earth, there were wolves. Once abundant in North America, these majestic creatures were hunted to near extinction in the lower 48 states by the 1920s. But in recent decades, conservationists have brought wolves back to the Rockies, igniting a battle over the very soul of the West. With novelistic detail, Nate Blakeslee tells the gripping story of one of these wolves, O-Six, a charismatic alpha female named for the year of her birth.

    Story

    This was an excellent story of not just the survival of a species, but the survival of individual animals with distinct personalities. You may even find yourself caring about a topic you never knew existed.

    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers - boys whose memories are also gone. Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out - and no one's ever made it through alive. Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying: Remember. Survive. Run.
