How can one pilot cram so much into a single lifetime? Climb into Captain Terry Reece's cockpit, fasten your seatbelt, and hold on for an exciting journey into the world of aviation. Born to a family of transplanted North Carolinians who moved to Washington State, a young Reece explored the hills of the Pacific Northwest. Hiking in the mountains and being a fire lookout gave him a taste of adventure, but he craved more-and he got it.

If you could sum up Flying North South East and West: Arctic to the Sahara in three words, what would they be?

BUSH PILOT EXTRAORDINARY

Who was your favorite character and why?

Terry was of-course. The whole book was about his life. And what a life that was.

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

He gave the characters a little more life than just a name. Also, I was impressed that anyone out side of Alaska could pronounce some of the native American names and places. But then again I would not know if he pronounced them right or not.

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

When they brought rice into Chad but could not give it out, sad!!

Any additional comments?

I liked this audio book and have recommended it to everyone I know who flys or who is a want-a-by flyer. I believe they will really identify with the author.

Would you consider the audio edition of Tested by Fire to be better than the print version?

The audio book gave me a picture of the characters in my mind that far exceeded what I got from reading the book. The voices of the different characters brought them to life for me. I could almost see the characters and they had faces.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tested by Fire?

What the gangs are like and how they are killing the people around them in more ways than I care to count.

Which scene was your favorite?

The biker bar. The narrator did it well. I felt like I was there and had seen it.

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

A medic in a large North Carolina town try's to save everyone but himself.

Any additional comments?

Very fast, action adventure book you will enjoy.

A series of savage and brutal murders is taking place by a killer that might not be human. A secret brotherhood first discovered this baffling mix of man and God in 1970. Now, this Son of God, or Satan, is about to proclaim its divinity, through a ritualistic series of slayings. Can Luke Starr, aka DragonMan, a new superhero for our times, stop its relentless threat to mankind? Only time will tell...

Insurance adjusters meet clients on the worst days of their lives, and they must be diplomatic, tactful, and ethical. The job is not only about returning phone calls and doing paperwork. Whether the case involves cargo damage, residential and business property damage, fire, fraud, burglary, or arson, it's the job of the adjuster to get to the bottom of things.

I liked the many stories of the people he run into doing the adjustment assignments from from those near his home office to the ones he had to travel to service.

What did you like best about this story?

I found out what an adjuster does and I put a face on the adjusters.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

The whole book is done in a story teller voice and only a few times were there characters but Mr. Bennington did entertaining voices for each..

Any additional comments?

I would have liked to hear more about some of his cases. Some cases could almost be a book in it self.

What did you love best about Joshua's Tree?

"Azul" the Ceradel was it a cat with a horn? That only grazed like a cow but could run alday!

What other book might you compare Joshua's Tree to and why?

Back to the future. Luke gets to see himself as an old man.

What about Joshua Bennington’s performance did you like?

, I liked the reading. His narrator voice was just right as a story teller, it gave a nice background. Not too emotional The voice changes when he does a character's dialogue to an emotional.one and that gives more feeling to the story.

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

Makes you think what science will do for us in the future.

Any additional comments?

This book ended in mid air. I would like to see a second book that finishes the story.
