    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Would you listen to No Easy Day again? Why?

    YES!


    What did you like best about this story?

    That the truth was told about the brave men who killed UBL. Oh, and definitely that those brave guys got him. It was great to know that at least justice was served...unexpected, swift and fast.... Just like UBL plotted and had executed the horrible tragedy of 9/11! He was definitely surprised and he hadn't even had time to use his "Just For Men" that the guys found in the bathroom!


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    It was done well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can't really say just one!...but I'm really glad the truth is out there now. I know they don't fight for "acknowledgement", but between the politicians and the crazy "internet conspiracy" theories, it was time someone who was actually there got to tell the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad that I read it. At first I thought, after reading, that this author had done something horrible. But after reading reviews from other Navy Seals, retired or otherwise, I realized they weren't angry. Seems as though the people who are actually angry are in this current administration.I've never listened to any book about the military before, but after this one I've since listened to American Sniper by Chris Kyle, The Warrior Elite, by Dick Couch and my favorite out of all, Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell. It was awesome that the BUD/S class that Dick Couch is observing and writing about is Class 228 that Marcus graduated from. He mentions Marcus several times in the book. I can't wait to read Marcus' next book :Service: A Navy Seal At War. I have so much respect and am truly in awe of all of our women and men in the military! I am so thankful for them - these books just reminded me that they are fighting for my freedom.

    Fresh from a six-month sojourn in Italy, Lady Julia returns home to Sussex to find her father's estate crowded with family and friends: but dark deeds are afoot at the deconsecrated abbey, and a murderer roams the ancient cloisters.

    What made the experience of listening to Silent in the Sanctuary the most enjoyable?

    I love that the male lead, Nicholas Brisbane is dark and brooding AND half gypsy just like Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. On top of that, Robert Downey, Jr. (in the Sherlock Holmes movies) is supposed to have been "semi" based on the way Brisbane looked and acted. Not sure about that, but Downey is so handsome! Perfect for Brisbane.I love the chemistry between Lady Julia and Brisbane. Not the usual fall into bed "their passions spent" stuff. If you like a lot of that, and quite early on in a book, then you won't like this book. I love Ellen Archer's voice. She does a terrific job with the narration and that can be the difference between whether I purchase a book or not. Some great books have unbearable narrators and it's such a waste!The mysteries do keep me guessing, but those who are used to this genre may find them not as complex. I have no comparison really.But I love this time period anyway I can get it and I am really enjoying these two and the cast of characters in their lives.


    What about Ellen Archer’s performance did you like?

    Love her!

    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

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

    In the top 10


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jesus


    Which character – as performed by Bill O'Reilly – was your favorite?

    Doesn't really apply


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire account of Killing Jesus. Brutal and horrible death.


    Any additional comments?

    Bill O'Reilly's narration is excellent just as it was in Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy. He says at the beginning he is not trying to convert anyone to Christianity, but is honest about his own faith.
    The beginning of the book which states:"To say that Jesus of Nazareth was the most influential man who ever lived is almost trite. Nearly two thousand years after he was brutally executed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God. That includes 77 percent of the U.S. population, according to a Gallup Poll. The teachings of Jesus have shaped the entire world and continue to do so."Whether one is an atheist or simply a non-Christian, that statement is just simply true.

    As 1901 comes to an end, there is much to be grateful for: The Dilberne fortune has been restored, and the grand Dilberne Court, with its 100 rooms, has been saved. Lord Robert's son, Arthur, is happily married to Chicago heiress, Minnie, who is pregnant and trying to come to terms with her new role as lady of the manor, and her charming but controlling mother-in-law, Lady Isobel. As Lord Robert and Lady Isobel get caught up in the preparations for the coronation of Edward VII, they debate the future of their recently orphaned niece, Adela.

    If you could sum up Long Live the King in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, delightful, witty


    What other book might you compare Long Live the King to and why?

    I listened to The Habits of The House first, so that's an obvious choice. That was a bit harder to get into, but once I did, I loved it as well and couldn't wait to listen to this book.


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

    Katherine Kellgren is absolutely the best! I have narrators that I love such as Davina Porter, Wanda McCaddon, etc., but Katherine is perfect for this type of book. I'm going to listen to another book just because I am not ready to listen to another voice!


    If you could take any character from Long Live the King out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    That's tough! I would love to go out to dinner with most of the characters! Maybe I would start with Lady Rosina!


    Any additional comments?

    I think you will like this book if you know something about the English Edwardian period - the Downton Abbey fans may like it - American heiress marries cash poor English Aristocracy.
    It's not as serious as Downton Abbey, nor even as serious as The American Heiress, by Daisy Goodwin. It's just delightful fun!
    I can't wait for the last book to come out...on audible..hopefully with Katherine Kellgren narrating in December 2013!
