They are an international elite unit created by NATO to carry out missions where no other could hope to succeed. A mix of Seals, Delta Force, British SAS and French, German and Polish SpecOps operators. Led by a former Navy Seal, Lieutenant Abe Talley. This is Echo Six. Even before they finish training a crisis develops that requires their unique and bloody brand of soldiering.

Where does Echo Six: Black Ops - Raid on Somalia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I havent listened to much audiobooks, but this one was great. Narrator, Tim Welch, emphasizes the characters' reactions in the story and makes it seem like you are there with them, listening in on their conversations.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot of the story was very well written. Each situation kept me on the edge of my seat, trying to guess what was going to happen next. All these fight scenes are so detailed and the author creates a visual effect for the reader.

Which character – as performed by Tim Welch – was your favorite?

The character that i enjoyed the most was Lieutenant Abe Talley. This character is your typically navy seal that does not take no for an answer. Tim Welch narrates his parts very well and you really get a sense of what the guy is like.

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

The book neither made me laugh or cry. The main thing it did was it kept me interested. I didn't think once to stop the recording because the author gets your attention within the first few pages of the book. It's sad to think that some of this events actually happen in the real world today but that is what makes the story so realistic.

Any additional comments?

Overall, I believe the book was very well written. the author did an awesome job with telling the story. There was no guessing what happened next and that is how he keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. I cannot applaud the narrator either. He does a great job when playing the characters. He uses a distinct tone and voice for every different character and it seems like there are multiple people there. This is a great read and I highly recommend it.
