    Hillary Rodham Clinton's inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America's 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future. In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed.

    What did you love best about Hard Choices?

    What I like best about Hard Choices was insight into the issues of today. The explanation of the background behind the issues in the world press. Americans should be proud to have a statesman like Hillary Rodham Clinton.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hard Choices?

    When Ms. Clinton explained the diplomacy behind the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas at the end of 2012.


    Have you listened to any of Kathleen Chalfant and Hillary Rodham Clinton ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    In the first ever short story by Retired Delta Force officer Brad Taylor, the stakes couldn' t be higher as operator Pike Logan goes after the first Taskforce target leading a team he can' t fully trust. Commissioned at the highest level of the U.S. government, and designed to operate outside the bounds of U.S. law, a new counter-terrorist unit known as the Taskforce has just been formed, but not fully tested. Until now.

    If you could sum up The Callsign in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Absolutely, Pike because of the complexity of his character.


    Have you listened to any of Rich Orlow and Henry Strozier ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance was fine. The female characters in their books are lame. The sound like whiners.

    After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted. But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion.

    What did you like best about Act of War? What did you like least?

    Unfortunately, Brad Thor gives conspiracy theorist a platform! I usually like his books but as the series continues, he gives the far right nuts more fuel. In the future, it would be nice to have some original stories instead of conspiracies from the internet.


    What about Armand Schultz’s performance did you like?

    Armand Schultz does an excellent performance.

    Born in shadow and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States. With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the U.S. has ever faced.

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

    Yes. I like this series. Unfortunately, the politics on both sides show the far right and far left as black and white. This is what is going on in today's politics. The answer is in the middle and working together is the answer. Both sides have good arguments. The novel was more of a political statement instead of a story.

    She was one of the most sought after women in the world. A top model who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted - even another woman's man. And now she was dead, the victim of a brutal murder.

    Story
    Where does Immortal in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is above average but the author uses the LORD's name in vain constantly. It would have been more enjoyable if she had come up with an original expletive since the stories are set in the future.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories are original.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Eve in her wedding gown.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.
