    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....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I found the main character to be a bit unlikable. Just a bit too arrogant and cocky for me.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s performance?

    Performance was okay. Easy to understand.


    Was Semper Fi worth the listening time?

    I wouldn't recommend the book. The main character was a bit too cocky; too extreme for my tastes. I expected a bit more out of a period piece, as this is one of my favorite eras to read about.

  • What I Talk about When I Talk about Running: A Memoir

    From the best-selling author of Kafka on the Shore comes this rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running and the integral impact both have made on his life. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers Murakami's four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. Settings range from Tokyo, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston, among young women who outpace him.

    Where does What I Talk about When I Talk about Running rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A pretty solid book. It kept me interested. If you're not much into running, you might not like it as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author is a humble person, but has accomplished much in life. Some nice stories here.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed hearing about the author's time in Greece.
